MovieMail's Review

A highly enjoyable, flashily camp, over-the-top comic satire set on an aeroplane experiencing in-flight difficulties. No-one does a comic set piece like Almodóvar, writes Alex Davidson.

After a string of intense and edgy melodramas, including Talk To Her and Volver, Pedro Almodovar returns to the outrageous comedies of his early career with I'm So Excited, a caper set almost entirely on an aeroplane experiencing difficulties in-flight. The plot, such as it is, takes in dodgy financial dealings, a dominatrix, a psychic virgin, gratuitous sex and a bizarre dance routine to the title song (one of the film's highlights).

If this all sounds silly, it is, very. But no one does a comic set piece like Almodovar, and the expert comic timing of the cast - notably the waspish air stewards who act as a catty chorus to the shenanigans - make for an outrageous treat. And despite his protests to the contrary, the Spanish director's depiction of a faulty aircraft where the standard class passengers are drugged into a coma while the first class travellers run amok may remind some of a certain country currently experiencing an economic crisis of its own. Flamboyant, vulgar and shameless, fans of camp should look no further.

I'm So Excited I'm So Excited I'm So Excited

Film Description

Pedro Almodóvar's flashily camp, over-the-top sex comedy, I'm So Excited follows the antics of a group of airline passengers who decide to cast decorum to the wind when they realise their jet is in trouble.

After discovering a fault in the aircraft's landing gear shortly after take-off, a Peninsula Airways jet bound for Mexico City is held in a holding pattern above Madrid. As the authorities on the ground try to solve the problem, the remaining business class passengers - those in economy class having been drugged unconscious by the crew - try to calm their nerves by embarking on a frenzied and debauched course of pill-popping, mescaline cocktails and gratuitous sex, aided by three ostentatiously gay flight attendants (Javier Cámara, Carlos Areces and Raul Arevalo).
