Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Pedro Almodovar's whimsy and wit are on full display in this cheeky, irreverent, and outrageous comedy that takes a terrifying premise -- a plane in trouble -- and turns it into a party. I'M SO EXCITED is a planeload of fun, fearless in its attempts to shock and awe, with a brazen sexuality that's unapologetic and refreshing.

That said, it's lightweight compared to the acclaimed director's previous productions (like Volver and All About My Mother). The allusions to political power struggles (by way of a dominatrix) and a failing economy (by way of a financier on the run) add a little spice to the confection, but they don't amount to quite enough heft. Not that they have to. I'm So Excited isn't particularly thrilling, but it's certainly fun to watch.
