I'm So ExcitedLOS AMANTES PASAJEROS/I’M SO EXCITED (15) 2012 SPAIN   
    ALMODÓVAR,  PEDRO DVD – £15.99   BLU RAY – £27.99
Pedro Almodóvar’s flashily camp, over-the-top sex comedy follows the antics of a group of airline passengers who decide to cast decorum to the wind when they realise their jet is in trouble. After discovering a fault in the aircraft’s landing gear shortly after take-off, a Peninsula Airways jet bound for Mexico City is held in a holding pattern above Madrid. As the authorities on the ground try to solve the problem, the remaining business class passengers – those in economy class having been drugged unconscious by the crew – try to calm their nerves by embarking on a frenzied and debauched course of pill-popping, mescaline cocktails and gratuitous sex, aided by three ostentatiously gay flight attendants (Javier Cámara, Carlos Areces and Raul Arevalo).
