In several of his films, Spanish writer/director Pedro Almodóvar indulges a riotous zaniness, including "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown," "Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!" and "Volver." His newest "I'm So Excited" only periodically achieves the heights I expect from Almodóvar, though this much slighter film still delivers a few wonderfully zany moments.
