Pedro Almodóvar is one of the most respected filmmakers working today, which makes his work in I’m So Excited! a bit of a disappointment. Ostensibly a comedy, the film attempts an absurdist approach to humor. The execution is pretty poor, though – basically all any audience needs to know is that there’s a lot of drinking, some drugging, and a ton of sex. Gay audiences may get some enjoyment out of some of the sex humor, since a large portion of the characters are gay or bisexual. Outside of that, though, I can’t exactly say I’m So Excited! filled me with excitement.
