Pedro Almodóvar, who is somewhere between being "The Spanish Woody Allen" and "The Spanish John Waters," is flying high with a new star-studded comedy farce.
Total Film has the debut trailer for "I'm So Excited," which takes its American title from the Pointer Sisters track even though the original name "Los amantes pasajeros" is a clever wordplay on "The fleeting lovers" and "The passenger lovers". Imagine if the Spanish changed the title "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" into "Love The One You're With," right?
Anyway, this latest campfest from the director of "Bad Education" and "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" finds Almodóvar in French farce territory as he sets his story almost entirely aboard an airplane doomed to certain calamity. Those on board, including various heartsick passengers and an array of outrageous gay flight attendants should make for plenty of hilarious turbulence.
Be sure your seat and tray tables are in their full, upright position, and keep your eyes peeled for cameos from Almodóvar regulars Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz.
