The entertainment factor it delivers is as high and pixilated as it's whacked-out, crazy characters.

For a light and naughty festival opener, I'm So Excited! got the job done. The audience saw something kind of sophisticated but didn't experience any real turbulence. Or excitement.

"I'm so Excited" shows Pedro Almodovar at his frothiest: shaking sex and death into a humorous cocktail aboard a plane in peril.

Think Flying High with a gay cabin crew and no laughs...The story has most of the plane's passengers rendered unconscious, presumably by showing I'm So Excited as the in-flight movie.

For a cinematic icon to get it so wrong, one has to assume it is deliberate; something to play with

Despite an over-weighted gay theme, there's a lot to like in this colourful Almodóvar blast of joie de vivre, as secrets are revealed, desires unleashed and the complexities of relationships are exposed

The setting acts as a bland backdrop without substance or thought. Worst of all, the dialogue feels horribly contrived, even lazy. A misguided misfire.

Disengaged silly spoof of those '70s disaster movies.

It's a sometimes pleasing, and often unsettling movie, proof that Almodovar still has a playful side, but let's hope he goes back to work soon.

Despite the film's playfulness, it's still quite clear that we're in the hands of a master who takes the work seriously, if not the material or his characters.

This isn't just camp, it's existential camp -- or, more precisely, an acknowledgment that the camp impulse is one way of dealing with the absurdity of life. 'We're flying around aimlessly,' a man says, 'and we don't know where or how we're going to land.'

Daring though it is, it follows the same trajectory as the wounded plane aboard which the film is set. That is, it circles and circles but never really goes anywhere.

The film is a broad, absurd parody that plays like a gay-cabaret send-up of "The High and the Mighty."

Pedro Almodóvar crammed actors he's worked with over the years into a movie so wacky it defies analysis.

It's farcical, but not funny; sexualized but not sexy.

...an interesting diversion for Almodovar completists, yet hardly explains why he's so revered. It's a throwaway, a bawdy, tasteless lark from someone who should've gotten this stuff out of his system by now. Judging by these results, he did.

Even though I'm So Excited! doesn't soar, the film is a fun flight.

It's like a very horny, very gay parody of airplane-disaster movies ... without the laughs. I'm So Excited! neither lives up to its name nor its exclamation point.

[This is] Almodóvar for people who assume they can't get Almodóvar otherwise. It's Almodóvar for Target.

A mescaline-alcohol-and-panic-fueled orgy of confessional dialogue, sex acts, arguments, confessional monologues, and more sex acts.
