The law of the ever diminishing sequels doesn't apply here
The law of the ever diminishing sequels should make us fear the worst for the 5th entry of the 'Liebesgrüße aus der Lederhose' saga, especially since the early films of the series were no cinematic masterpieces in the first place. Fortunately, the laws of mainstream cinema only partially apply to soft-porn sex comedies, and indeed this is arguably the best film of the series.
The reason is quite simply that this has a plot - and, judging by genre standards, it is amazingly well-constructed, because several plot-threats are smoothly interlinked and there are no noticeable loose ends. Of course, the central plot idea about establishing a flying school in Upper Bavaria has severe flaws, e.g. the disregard for safety regulations and the equally fatal disregard for a business plan. But this is nit-picking.
The cast handles its assigned tasks pretty well, although Michel Modo's eye-rolling antics seem to be in the wrong film. The female cast has been picked mostly on the grounds how beautiful they look with their kit off, only Judith Fritsch (as usual, the romantic lead) has a role that permits any kind of acting beside the rumpy-pumpy.
