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

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

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.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

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.'

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

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

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

For those who enjoy bawdiness with their comedy, I'm So Excited! will be catnip. For those expecting subtitled sophistication, look elsewhere.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Almodóvar joins the mile-high club, setting his films' trademark sexcapades, overwrought telenovella plot twists and bubblegum-colored imagery aboard a doomed airliner.

It's amusing fluff, but from an Oscar-winning dramatist, this return to comedy is a bit of a letdown.

Though it's a jolly good time, and there are amusing moments of mayhem, I'm So Excited! is not nearly as crazy as its hopeful title suggests.

Almodovar muse Cecilia Roth is Spain's own Cruella De Vil. Almodovar regular Lola Duenas is a sexy scream as a virgin psychic.

The party in the sky comes to represent Almodovar's faith in the power of imagination, which allows us to transcend even the most horrifying tragedies.

It's broad, occasionally uproarious, a little wheezy, and every so often inspired.

A relentlessly entertaining lark that, like its setting, soars into the clouds, then discovers it doesn't really have a way to get down.

The joy of sex, the terror of death, and the eccentricity of human relationships has never been celebrated more cerebrally, or more profanely, with such viscerally sensual delight.

Almodovar is grabbing you by the lapels and talking into your face and making you see the life that's around you. "I'm So Excited" is frivolous, but it's the frivolity of a passionate and thinking person.
