Storyline

A technical failure has endangered the lives of the people on board Peninsula Flight 2549. The pilots are striving, along with their colleagues in the Control Center, to find a solution. The flight attendants and the chief steward are atypical, baroque characters who, in the face of danger, try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, while they wait for a solution. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: sex and death. Written by Production

An only somewhat funny film about sex and death
18 November 2013 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

A comedy about an impending plane crash and the inevitable deaths of all the passengers directed by Pedro Almodovar. I know, none of the parts of that sentence fit together, so thus begins the massive uphill climb of "I'm So Excited" for it to even make sense. And that's part of the problem, it takes so much effort on the part of the filmmaker and the audience to accept that it is a comedy about people dying in a plane crash, that there's precious little left to actually enjoy the film.

Almodovar thankfully left most of the rape undertones and overtones in his previous films and just settled on the over-the-top comedy of homosexuality. The three gay flight attendants were quite amusing, but the overtly sexual and gay jokes that the rest of the characters got to deliver were too inanely vulgar to be all that funny.

It's also the rest of the characters that are responsible for pulling the film together, and they just don't do it. They are all selfish people trying to sort out their lives in their final minutes, and I couldn't care less if they die or not. But that's the nature of a light comedy about dying – you're not supposed to care, you're just supposed to laugh. There are some laughs but not enough to overcome the disparate outline of "I'm So Excited'.
