Another gender comedy
19 July 2012 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

The genre is a little tired and has been so for long. Somebody, mostly a man because it's more funny, is from certain circumstances forced to be a woman for a while. He's always afraid of being cached, of having his charade gone wrong.

This is what happens also in Swedish movie "Cockpit". The dialog is rather funny and Jonas Karlsson is good as the man, but not that good as a woman. He wouldn't fool anybody in real life.

The message is clear. Humans are more important than gender. It could have been all right, if it wasn't for these rather clumsy portraits of journalists, feminists and employer monsters.
