On a flight to Mexico, bisexual pilots Benito (Hugo Silva) and Alex (Antonio de la Torre), gay stewards Ulloa (RaÃºl ArÃ©valo), Fajardo (Carlos Areces), and Joserra (Javier CÃ¡mara), and a plane full of bizarre passengers are in for the ride of what could be the rest of their lives.
Written and directed by Pedro AlmodÃ³var (Broken Embraces, The Skin I Live In), I’m So Excited! is a light and frothy – and exceedingly raunchy – comedy follows the exploits of three unapologetically loud and proud gay flight attendants on a wounded aircraft destined to fly in circles until a runway opens up to make an emergency crash-landing.
Joserra, Fajardo, and Ulloa drug the economy-class passengers with muscle relaxers so they can better focus on making the flight as pleasant as possible for the middle-aged virgins, mustachioed assassins, philandering actors, world-class escorts, and secretive businessmen in first-class. The in-flight entertainment includes spiking passengers’ cocktails with mescaline and performing a beyond-flamboyant production number to the Pointer Sisters’ “I’m So Excited,” complete with jazz hands, pelvic thrusts, and synchronized leg kicks.
