    What's ultimately shocking about Kika is how empty mayhem can be made to look.

    The New York Times Janet Maslin

    Kika" is actually one of this film maker's more buoyant recent efforts, a sly, rambunctious satire that moves along merrily until it collapses -- as many Almodovar films finally do -- under the weight of its own clutter.

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    Almodovar's central parody is strong enough to save this film from floundering too much or too often. It's daring and nasty, but rarely brilliant.

    Kika is kind of a mess. But it's a charming, stimulating, talented and ingratiating mess, none-the-less.

    Chicago Sun-Times

    The chaos in Kika is so brilliantly orchestrated, and so gamely acted, you can't help being drawn into it. There is, truly, never a dull moment. And, in patented Almodovar fashion, the bold, kitschy colors of the costumes and settings, provide their own charm. [27 May 1994, p.43]
