The end of the video shows a number of the smaller video screens on the plane concealed by blankets, as well.

The movie in question was the 2007 Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore film Music and Lyrics.

The video was first put online by a website called the Yeshiva World and has since been reported by websites all over the world.
