Though its tone wavers, telenovela-style, between farcical and sentimental, and it's at least 15 minutes too long, the film is easy enough to sit through.
Overstuffed with crudely drawn, broadly acted secondary characters (and tricked out with flat drag musical numbers), Manuela aspires to be about love, friendship, and good hearts triumphing. But it's actually a grim reminder that formulaic queer cinema is
Hysterical...(the filmmakers) milk their comedic scenario for all that it's worth, but it never feels strained.
Charming screwball comedy about a flamboyant drag queen who has to find a way to man up after his best friend gets pregnant and asks him to pose as her fiance to her strict traditional family. Plays like second rate Almodovar, but its crowd pleasing effectiveness is hard to deny.
