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

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

Too broad for the tarmac.
July 25, 2013
It's amusing fluff, but from an Oscar-winning dramatist, this return to comedy is a bit of a letdown.
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.

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.
July 11, 2013
It's broad, occasionally uproarious, a little wheezy, and every so often inspired.

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.

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.

This return to the past feels more lazy than liberating.

An airborne trifle that passes for Pedro Almodvar's new film.
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.

The sex jokes and performances are as broad as a barn, but it's a stylishly painted one ...
June 28, 2013
This farce set mostly aboard a transatlantic flight stuck in midair never launches.
June 28, 2013
'I'm So Excited' is bursting with color, sass and sexiness ... it maintains a light feel throughout.
June 28, 2013
A campy, sex-obsessed spoof of airborne-disaster movies that never really gets off the ground.
June 27, 2013
I can't remember when, if ever, Pedro Almodvar has had as much flamboyant fun as he does in the high-flying comedy "I'm So Excited!"

[An] airless, uninvolving movie.

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.
