It has a whiff of the sort of desperation that can make an exclamation point in a title seem like a good idea.

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!
July 22, 2013
The jokes are hit-and-miss in what feels like a side project for Almodovar between his more ambitious ventures.

I appreciate what Almodovar was trying to do, but this comedy is just too broad for its own good.

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.
July 19, 2013
If you were hoping Almodovar would return to comedy, you might want to be careful what you wish for.
July 18, 2013
Makes every effort to be wickedly wacky and light-footedly seductive and fails at virtually every turn.
July 18, 2013
Although admirably bizarre and forward when it comes to the dance of the pants, I'm So Excited doesn't work itself into a proper lather, showing only intermittent flashes of inspiration.
July 15, 2013
To throw caution to the winds is one thing, but to jettison control of tone at the same time seems a liberty too far.

Almodovar muse Cecilia Roth is Spain's own Cruella De Vil. Almodovar regular Lola Duenas is a sexy scream as a virgin psychic.
July 11, 2013
I'm So Excited is a throwback to the director's earlier, goofier films, but it doesn't work nearly as well as it should.
July 11, 2013
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.

A sex comedy set on a mechanically challenged airliner, this movie featuring an ensemble of Spanish heavyweights pushes the envelope of good taste on the premise alone because it's hard to make a doomed plane funny, especially without Leslie Nielsen.
July 11, 2013
It's broad, occasionally uproarious, a little wheezy, and every so often inspired.
July 11, 2013
A relentlessly entertaining lark that, like its setting, soars into the clouds, then discovers it doesn't really have a way to get down.
July 11, 2013
completes the gradual movement in Almodovar's work toward completely mannered farcical soap opera
July 11, 2013
So light and inconsequential it may as well not exist. It makes you want to yank that annoying exclamation point out of the title, because it doesn't deserve it.
July 10, 2013
"...gleeful self-distraction in the face of impending doom."
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.

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.
