The trailer does not look very promising. In fact the trailer looks cliché and kinda stupid. I went to see it because I'm familiar with Almodovar's other works. I love that most if not all of his movies have strong female characters.

I had to write a review after seeing all of the other bad reviews. This movie does not have some great underlining meaning and will not change your life. However, it is excellent for what it is: a comedy. That is not to say its completely void of any depth. No, once again Almodovar proves he is the man for character development.
