When it appears as though the end is in sight, the pilots, flight crew, and passengers of a plane heading to Mexico City look to forget the anguish of the moment and face the greatest danger, which we carry within ourselves.
A story that follows a New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment), apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer), and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possibility dwindles.
After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.

A technical failure has endangered the lives of the people on board Peninsula Flight 2549. The pilots are striving, along with their colleagues in the Control Center, to find a solution. The flight attendants and the chief steward are atypical, baroque characters who, in the face of danger, try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, while they wait for a solution. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: sex and death. Written by
As usual in most of Pedro Almodóvar's movies, there is a small role for Agustín Almodóvar, his brother and producer of the film, who plays a tower controller at the landing airport at the end of the movie. See more »
The good news: there need never be another argument about which film is Pedro Almodovar's worst. The bad news: this is abominably awful. My guess is that Almodovar just wanted to make a fun comic trifle, and more power to him. Unfortunately, the result is just so friggin' lame. Barely a single laugh to be had and so vapid it hurts. Hey, at least it still looks like an Almodovar film. A bunch of people in the business class of an airplane discover that their landing gear is severely damaged, so they decide to party it out with the crew. The English language title is a reference to the popular song, which plays during the film's most amusing sequence. The original, Spanish title is "The Passenger Lovers" because, during the climactic sequence, everyone screws. There are a bunch of plot lines and all of them feel unfinished
I was assuming I had gotten an edited version (with all the gay
stuff, I thought maybe the American distributors cut down some stuff for an R rating), but, no. I'd say at least it's short, but these 90 minutes are interminable.
