A very regressive transition for this Oscar-winning filmmaker.

Any resemblance to an outrageous Mexican telenovela wears off when the movie stalls and resorts to cheap shocks.
August 8, 2016
I'm So Excited is so strongly problematic and yet resolutely without much to facilitate worthwhile discussion.

September 4, 2018
It's thin, banal, boring, unwitty and, if satirical, then poorly satirical, and poorly satire is no good to anyone.
July 6, 2013
Considering Almodovar has produced some of the most inventive and best works in cinema, I'm So Excited falls well short of expectation and ultimately falls flat on its face with a mixture of jokes and political subtext which are not at all funny.

June 25, 2013
I'm So Excited! is characterized by a distinct brand of unsuccessful yet ambitious storytelling, the kind often found in minor works by major masters.
June 27, 2013
A tossing off of the frock, and a sprint through fields of naked bodies, Valencia cocktails, and public sexual activity.

July 3, 2013
The set is obviously and intentionally fake, but instead of creating a sense of make-believe, it actually burdens the film and gives it a clinical air that's rather suffocating.

Almodovar gleefully returns to the broad, colourful burlesque of his early work. Although, without the transgressive attitude and closeted context, this sexy satire is all froth and no balls.
April 29, 2013
It ultimately amounts to little more than a 90-minute-long gay joke that loses its charm after just a few.

In a more or less wholly libertarian society of the kind we now have in the West, the very idea of camping it up like this seems unnecessary, therefore tiresome.

"Vintage Almodovar" doesn't carry the campy weight it used to.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 26, 2013
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.

September 15, 2013
The setting acts as a bland backdrop without substance or thought. Worst of all, the dialogue feels horribly contrived, even lazy. A misguided misfire.

May 2, 2013
Almodóvar's new film feels like a conscious attempt to recapture the spirit of his earlier comedic films.

To help prevent a riot, the economy passengers are sent to the land of nod. So much for the idea of finding your inner self at moments of great danger!

For all its jazzy formalism and bedroom-eyes bravado ... the movie feels uninvolving, a tribute to Hollywood screwball that's ultimately more wearyingly prankish than transgressive.
July 25, 2013
More Almodovar if he was directing an R-rated sketch for the "Carol Burnett Show." If only Harvey Korman were still alive -- and spoke Spanish!

There's no reason this couldnt be witty or amusing but Almodovars smutty, high-camp approach plays like Airplane with artistic pretensions and none of the laughs.

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.
