The cinema came down laughing 2 minutes after the takeoff of the film (which actually takes place on an airplane), and never stopped. The screenplay is simply flawless, and actors honor it with remarkable interpretations. A good example of good comedy. Although there are no coups de scénes and the plot flows quite smoothly, humour is never compromised. Common places about men and women relationships are broken non chalantly, and romance fits fine: a romantic comedy which is very funny and very romantic. Big part of the film's charm is the language, and I couldn't tell whether a non-Spanish speaker would like it or not. Maybe there's an American remake somewhere.
