I Love You Baby

Spanish directors Alfonso Albacete and David Menkes (I Will Survive) appropriate a real-life accident that befell pop singer Boy George as the pivotal incident in this likable if patronizing piece of whimsy (2001). A country boy new to Madrid (Jorge Sanz) falls in love with a young two-bit actor (Santiago Magill), but after being hit on the head by a falling disco ball he succumbs to the advances of a single mother from the Dominican Republic and his old flame dresses up in drag to win him back. Much of the courtship and cross-dressing comedy is lame, but Dominican song-and-dance numbers crank up the energy, and the heart-to-heart scenes are sweet. Predictably, Boy George has a cameo. In Spanish with subtitles. 103 min.
