I'm So Excited! Reviews
November 25, 2019
It may not be artistically stylish to accommodate fans of Almodóvar's more acclaimed films, but the amoral characters and the quick-witted dialogue are enough to shock and entertain.

A bawdy, trifling, absurd breath of fresh air that sees the auteur return to zany high camp territory.

Has Almodóvar's filthy comedic mind lost its edge during his extended respite? No-his edge is sharp, and he's still fiendishly provocative, no question. He had me constantly shaking my head in disbelief at the dirty things he got me to laugh at.

Enough bravado camerawork, soapy intrigue and Spanish piquancy to draw you in, before spitting you out in globule of foam, mescaline and who knows what else.

I'm So Excited! is a bit repetitive, but it's unashamedly frivolous and often very funny.

It's thin, banal, boring, unwitty and, if satirical, then poorly satirical, and poorly satire is no good to anyone.

Any resemblance to an outrageous Mexican telenovela wears off when the movie stalls and resorts to cheap shocks.

I'm So Excited! isn't very good. In fact, it's close to terrible.

A ribald, ridiculous party in the sky, I'm So Excited is basically Almodvar's Soul Plane-and I mean that as a compliment.

A very regressive transition for this Oscar-winning filmmaker.

Here's a good rule of thumb: never trust anything bearing an exclamation mark.

I'm So Excited is so strongly problematic and yet resolutely without much to facilitate worthwhile discussion.

I'm So Excited is far from perfect, but as far asmost summer comedies go, the film is more open and accepting of various sexualities and is mostly light-hearted fun-excluding a couple profoundly distasteful scenes.

Seeing I'm So Excited, a return to comic form for the director, is like downing the cocktail the passengers and crew drink in the movie without having to come down from that high later.

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.
