"A Mile High Club for Sodomites"
What You Need To Know:
I’M SO EXCITED! is a lewd satire from Spain. It takes place aboard a fictional airliner. The landing gear goes wrong, forcing the plane to circle for hours before it can land safely. The plane’s crew consists of three homosexual male flight attendants, a bisexual pilot and a heterosexual copilot. The passengers include a shrewish older actress and a younger woman who have pent-up sexual desires. The flight attendants drug some of the passengers so they stop making demands of the crew. Then, the two repressed women start taking advantage of the drugged men.
There is little if any linear plot to I’M SO EXCITED! The movie is intended more as a surrealistic satire of modern Spanish life, including the current economic woes in Spain and Europe. The movie contains frequent crude content, including plenty of foul, vulgar language and lots of substance abuse. Nearly all of the comedy, but especially the crude comedy, falls flat. Moviegoers won’t be so excited about I’M SO EXCITED! There’s little of substance in this Spanish farce, and much less that’s even the slightest redemptive.

I’M SO EXCITED! is a Spanish comedy by an unduly acclaimed director about a plane filled with sexually charged passengers and an all-male flight crew that’s either homosexual or bisexual. Sexual shenanigans ensue when flight complications cause a delay for hours. I’M SO EXCITED! has a strong Romantic worldview that’s made worse by strong pro-homosexual content.
The story takes place aboard a fictional Spanish airline upon which the landing gear goes wrong, forcing the plane to circle for hours before it can land safely. The plane’s crew consists of three homosexual male flight attendants, a bisexual pilot and a heterosexual copilot. The passengers include a shrewish older actress and a younger woman who each have pent-up sexual desires that wind up becoming fully expressed in clothed yet graphic fashion later in the movie. Among the other shenanigans are passengers getting unwittingly drugged to pass out and stop making demands of the crew. Then, the two repressed women start taking advantage of the drugged men. There is little if any linear plot to I’M SO EXCITED! The movie is intended more as a surrealistic satire of modern Spanish life, including its current economic woes. All of the highly homosexual humor will fall flat with most moviegoers, as the generally poor performance of movies with such explicit content indicates.
I’M SO EXCITED! is but the latest homosexual-themed movie of many in the long career of its writer-director, Pedro Almodovar. He knows how to make a visually stylish, fast-moving movie, and the actors are all gifted comic performers. However, the movie makes light of frequent aberrant sexual behavior without any moral comeuppance for its characters. Thus, there’s little or nothing of substance or enjoyment beyond the movie’s homosexual content. I’M SO EXCITED! is inappropriate viewing for any discerning moviegoer.
