For a cinematic icon to get it so wrong, one has to assume it is deliberate; something to play with
September 15, 2013
Despite an over-weighted gay theme, there's a lot to like in this colourful Almodvar 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.
August 19, 2013
Disengaged silly spoof of those '70s disaster movies.
August 9, 2013
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.
August 6, 2013
The film is a broad, absurd parody that plays like a gay-cabaret send-up of "The High and the Mighty."
August 2, 2013
Pedro Almodvar crammed actors he's worked with over the years into a movie so wacky it defies analysis.
August 2, 2013
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.
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.

[This is] Almodvar for people who assume they can't get Almodvar otherwise. It's Almodvar for Target.
July 26, 2013
A mescaline-alcohol-and-panic-fueled orgy of confessional dialogue, sex acts, arguments, confessional monologues, and more sex acts.
July 25, 2013
For those who enjoy bawdiness with their comedy, I'm So Excited! will be catnip. For those expecting subtitled sophistication, look elsewhere.
July 25, 2013
Too broad for the tarmac.
July 25, 2013
Almodvar joins the mile-high club, setting his films' trademark sexcapades, overwrought telenovella plot twists and bubblegum-colored imagery aboard a doomed airliner.
July 25, 2013
It's amusing fluff, but from an Oscar-winning dramatist, this return to comedy is a bit of a letdown.
