Forgettable, frothy, chaotic, charming, it’s hardly groundbreaking compared to Volver. At best it feels like a director blowing off steam – though nobody knows how to do that better than Almodóvar.
Full of fizz, filth and fun, I’m So Excited! is like an ’80s retro-blast. Its scattershot comedy may not impress latecomers to Almodóvar’s career, but old-school fans will love it.
