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.

A comedy without any laughs...

I'm So Excited! isn't very good. In fact, it's close to terrible.
September 7, 2017
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.

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.

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

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.

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 Almodvar crammed actors he's worked with over the years into a movie so wacky it defies analysis.
July 31, 2013
...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.

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] Almodvar for people who assume they can't get Almodvar otherwise. It's Almodvar for Target.

Too broad for the tarmac.
