Editorial Reviews

All aboard for non-stop hilarity from Oscar-winner (Best Original Screenplay, Talk to Her, 2002) Pedro Almodovar.Shortly after lift-off from Madrid, the flight crew discovers something is wrong with the landing gear and their journey to Mexico City may be imperiled. Desperate to divert attention from the rapidly spreading news, a trio of campy flight attendants launches into fits of lip-synching, boozing, drugging and matchmaking with the colorful assortment of passengers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gay Boys in the Air July 12, 2013
Format:DVD
The subjects are different, but the style is unmistakeable. This is an Almodovar film, brightly lit, deeply colored, with a bunch of characters who not only don't act in their own best interests, but whose actions cannot be predicted rationally. In this case, nearly everyone in the crew is gay, from screamingly to not even knowing. The passengers in business class, which is only a quarter occupied, make up the rest of the characters we need to deal with. There is of necessity a great deal of suspension of disbelief, as passengers parade through the cockpit, an economy passenger spends the entire flight wandering around business class and the cockpit, and the intercom phone is used to make calls to the ground, but broadcast over the public address system for all to hear. It doesn't stop anyone from making very personal calls. Oh, and the entire sardine-packed economy class, including the crew, have been drugged into sleep -except for a frumpy psychic. Okay, we're ready.

The business class passengers are the usual mix - a celebrity dominatrix, a hired assassin, a fleeing, fleecing CEO, a drug-addled honeymoon couple, a lonely psychic and a self absorbed narcissistic film star. Just like every flight you've ever been on.

The stars are clearly the stewards, whose cartoonish gay affectations, too tight uniforms and karaoke performance to divert the passengers (a fabulous parody of the American musical) are the glue that holds everything together.

All in all, a romp different than the usual Almodovar - less puzzling, more gay and a whole lot more fun. If you like Almodovar, you will love I'm So Excited.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Funny Funny! December 24, 2013
Format:DVD
This movie is hilarious. Yeah, many of the characters are gay, and sterotypical, but this movie is a laugh riot. A very pleasant change for The Skin I Live In(great but very frightening). If your a homophobe, skip this, but if not, hopefully you'll love this as much as i did. Viva Pedro!!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Look at Almodóvar at his lightest and gayest January 7, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
People have gotten too used to new Almodóvar and, loving the heaviness of The Skin I Live In and Bad Education, couldn't accept that the director decided to make a trifle. I don't think he's had a worse received movie in twenty years but, personally, while I adore the movies he's made in the past decade, I find it a nice palate cleanser.

If there's anything at all serious about I'm So Excited!, it's quickly undermined by the torrent of all variety of sex jokes. I have always appreciated how easily Almodóvar mixes gay and straight cultures. That may seem obvious, but he's far from the only openly gay director making movies and, so often, they're treated as entirely different worlds. Straight directors like to leave the LGBT community as ancillary stereotypes, so they're out. For Almodóvar, though, it doesn't matter if you're gay, straight, bi, a middle-aged psychic virgin with a thing for sleeping dudes. It's all good on Peninsula 2549.

The movie's persistence with that idea might rub some people the wrong way, but he's always been like this; it's just especially flamboyant here since we haven't seen it from him in so long. But it's great fun, especially given that he now has skills that far surpass what he had when he made Labyrinth of Passion, and I'm So Excited! is a great looking movie. It starts with a lovely little scene between Antonio Banderas (Matador) and Penelope Cruz (Broken Embraces) as tarmac workers in their first scene together, despite having appeared in a combined eight of the director's films. It's a nice little nod to two big stars who helped make his career and vice versa. After that, virtually everything takes place on the plane, with really only four rooms to work with.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm So Excited July 7, 2013
By L. Boki
Format:DVD
I have proclaimed so many different Almodovar films that it seems almost cliche to say, but, this super hilarious ultra homosexual romp is definitely the one. While it may finally be entirely too gay for fans of Almodovar's less literal works, this one has me in stitches from the very first frame. Opening with cameos from Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz, Almodovar answers a request of mine in part though they are not fully realized roles. The audience I saw it with was a mix of consistent laughter as myself or cold silence like the asinine gentleman in the squeaky theater seat a row ahead of me without the common sense to move to another seat despite every move he made causing a loud squeak. Filmed almost entirely inside of an airplane, somehow the signature Almodovar cinematography still comes through particularly in the wardrobe of arguably the most gaupo newly wed who undoubtedly will be a fixture in future Almodovar movies. The character of a virginal psyche is played by Almodovar regular Lola Duenas who down plays her stunning beauty to nearly unrecognizable effect. The role of the Classico sex symbol is embraced by Cecilia Roth, another Almodovar regular. The stewards are all regulars as well with Javier Camarras, Raul Arevalo y Hugo Silva. They lipsyched their English to perfection in a funny choreographed taken on The Pointer Sisters title song classic. As with any Almodovar Pelicula, he leaves you greatly missing Espana. The few scenes e las calles de Madrid are simply enchanting. Whenever el director wants to make another film in Madrid, I cannot wait. Worth numerous viewings for its great dialogue and performances, this is Almodovar reaching yet another plateau.

This movie was horrendous! Offensive stereotypes, gratuitous sex--is Almodovar running short on cash? Was this a screenplay from the 80's that someone found in an old desk? Read more

Classic Almodovar - in the same genre as Women on the Verge. I loved it but it is so over the top! And whatever you do - don't watch it with your grandparents!

2.0 out of 5 stars I love everything this Director does
This was just plain bad. And Penelope Cruz really isn't in the movie, so why use her name?
I really wanted to like it.
I hope it was a fluke.
