Humberto Busto plays the title drag queen, who finds solace from a recent breakup in the elaborate stage numbers he performs at a local nightclub. When his best friend gets pregnant, Manuel agrees to marry her, not realizing that one of his admirers at the club is her hidebound father. There's an underlying sadness and complexity to the main character that might have intensified the drama of this Puerto Rican feature (2007). But director Raul Marchand Sanchez opts for a light and breezy tone, and this likable piffle is eventually overwhelmed by numerous wacky improbabilities. 94 min.
