Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that I'm So Excited is an outrageous Spanish-language comedy from director Pedro Almodovar. It centers on the idea that a commercial airplane's technical failure is putting its passengers in danger -- a situation that's played for laughs, with everyone taking advantage of the situation to benefit them: losing their virginity, drugging others so they won't have to deal with their panic, sharing (very) honest opinions, telling absolute truths they've never revealed, and more. It's told in Almodovar's classic madcap, over-the-top, sexually charged way, with plenty of swearing (in Spanish translated into English subtitles), lots of drinking, sexual innuendo, graphic discussions about sexual positions/adventures, and scenes of couples making out fairly aggressively and having simulated sex (no graphic nudity, but erections are shown under clothing).
No-full frontal nudity, but there's some cleavage, and erections are shown under clothing. Couples are also shown grinding on each other (ostensibly having sex) and in various sex positions. A man is shown with what appears to be ejaculate on his face, and characters discuss oral sex in detail. A few characters have sex with people who are high or asleep. Crude references. Virginity loss is part of the story.
A woman appears ready to jump off a bridge; there's talk of her obsession with a man. Men yell and scream at each other and scuffle.
"S--t," "a--hole," and more in subtitles. The movie is in Spanish, and characters swear in that language, too.
The specter of tragedy pulls people together and makes them question the way they live their lives -- or not. So why not live a little?
In Touch magazine is glimpsed, as well as Tropicana juice.
