Consensus: Campy and proudly absurd, I'm So Excited! Pedro Almodóvar's return to light comedy isn't quite the successful homecoming that filmgoers might wish for.

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.

Seeing I'm So Excited, a return to comic form for the director, is like downing the cocktail the passengers and crew drink in the movie without having to come down from that high later.

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

It's amusing fluff, but from an Oscar-winning dramatist, this return to comedy is a bit of a letdown.

The entertainment factor it delivers is as high and pixilated as it's whacked-out, crazy characters.

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

To throw caution to the winds is one thing, but to jettison control of tone at the same time seems a liberty too far.

For a light and naughty festival opener, I'm So Excited! got the job done. The audience saw something kind of sophisticated but didn't experience any real turbulence. Or excitement.

Almodóvar's pit stop back to his light comedies, but, even if mildly amusing, it lacks in structure and ends up looking ironically like the airplane where… More

It's got a few too many pointless digressions that keep the film from being as enjoyable as I hoped, but Almodovar's intentions were clearly to make… More

Sex, disco and absurdities. Directorial auteur Pedro Almodóvar makes, somewhat unexpectedly, a detour into comedic airspaces, away from the melancholy of recent… More

Almodovar back in full on camp mode.
