The action takes place above the clouds as the pilots of a stricken airliner battle to make it to Mexico City. In face of danger the crew decide to forget their own personal problems and await their fate with a smile. They devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarised in two words: sex and death.
Budget Spanish film full of gay stereotypes from an over-rated director

I find Pedro Almodovar perhaps the most over-rated director in the world today (except perhaps for the awful Wed Anderson).
This movie is cheap and looks it - like a B-movie (and it probably started as a 4th rate play in Spanish theatre or via some awful drama student workshop). It chooses to flaunt gay stereotypes in an utterly unrealistic plot (so many things happen here that would never ever happen on ANY aircraft - in the Western world anyway. Maybe in Russia or Africa).
What Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz are doing in this trash is a mystery. Maybe they were drugged (like the passengers on this fantasy jumbo jet).
Wanna watch a great movie set on a flight? Rent out AIRPLANE! It knocks socks of this Spanish omelette mess of a movie.
This is just irritating and boring - and unfunny - and crude. One star is for its being less than 90 minutes.
