I’m So Excited!

I’m So Excited!

Directed by: Pedro Almoldovar

Cast: Javier Camara, Cecilia Roth, Paz Vega, Blanca Suarez, Carmen Machi, Lola Dueñas

Running Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: July 5, 2013 (Chicago)

Plot: Three flight attendants take care of their passengers as two pilots attempt to prevent their damaged plane from crashing.

Who’S It For? If you’re familiar with Almoldovar, this film is likely to play for you better than for the uninitiated, if at least for the sake of being aware of his dramatic style and recurring themes. This movie could be a cult classic, but only within the cult of people who follow Almoldovar, and will watch anything he makes.

Overall

I’m So Excited!, which is like Pedro Almoldovar’s very gay Spanish version of Soul Plane, is a silly movie made that is outwardly fine with functioning as a simple breath of relaxed air from

Latest Almodóvar Comedy Has the Director's Biggest Opening-Weekend b.o. in His Native Country

Almodóvar comedy boasts the director's best opening ever in his native country (in euros) I'm So Excited / Los amantes pasajeros , the Pedro Almodóvar airplane-set comedy, had the biggest Spanish debut weekend ever for an Almodóvar film -- in terms of box-office receipts (in euros), though apparently not in actual number of movie tickets sold. Distributed by Spanish branch of Warner Bros., the comedy raked in $2.5 million at 298 venues this past weekend (March 8 - 10), thus trailing only -- and by a very small margin -- the Disney-distributed, Sam Raimi-directed Oz the Great and Powerful, which earned $2.61 million at 649 sites, as per box-office numbers found on the web site Box Office Mojo. (Pictured above: I'm So Excited cast members.) Needless to say, the per-theater average for Almodovar's latest -- despite a number of negative reviews in the Spanish media -- was much higher than the one for the $200 million-budgeted Hollywood flick starring James Franco: $8,415 vs.

Cheeky Almodovar trailer teases Banderas, Cruz cameos

  • Cineplex
The reliably perverse, insightful and talented Spanish auteur has given us family dramas (Volver), the wacky and sexually bizarre (Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!), the emotional (Talk to Her) and the icky (The Skin I Live In) and is responsible for launching the careers of two of the most famous Spanish actors, so it's no surprise that the trailer for his new movie is joyful, weird, high camp and naughty.

The aptly-titled I'm So Excited rolls out like a bottle episode, where all the action takes place on an airplane doomed to crash, or explode or generally not make it to the destination in one piece, according to a psychic on board who has an, ahem, interesting replacement for the more traditional crystal ball.

In addition to brief cameos from his most famous collaborators Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz, we see typical Pedro Almodovar cast members like Javier Cámara,

That’s the good news. The not-so-good news (for non-Spanish speakers): it’s in Spanish, without subtitles. (Please scroll down to check out the I’m So Excited trailer.) [Photo: Miguel Ángel Silvestre in Pedro Almodóvar's I'm So Excited.] But don’t feel bad if you don’t speak Spanish. After all, even Spanish speakers will likely have to pay close attention to the one-gazillion-words-a-minute dialogue — which would put James Cagney, Joan Blondell, Una Merkel, et al. to shame.
