Dude Schmitz, an independent filmmaker, attempting to secure funds for his second feature, blows an opportunity at what promises to be a lucrative interview with pop sensation Britney Spears. Dejected, Schmitz discovers Robert Stephens, a young, gay Britney impersonator. Schmitz takes off for New Orleans with Stephens, promising him a chance to meet his teen idol, all the while taking film of Stephens' cross-country exploits and pawning them off as footage of the real deal.

After viewing "Britney, Baby,One More Time", I was impressed by the simplicity of the movie and it's need to not be pretentious. I am not a Britney Spears fan and I am not a female impersonator fan, so I expected little, and, as a result, was awarded much. I thought the director skillfully blended strong supporting roles as well as main roles into a delightful blend of comedy and campiness. Robert Stephens does not take himself too seriously, and, therefore, the movie works. I thought the best performance of the film belonged to Karl Makinen as the TV producer. He drove the movie without overplaying and created the most memorable scenes. Mike Schank simply stole the film and reminded us how less is more. There are some classic scenes in the movie which deserve recognition (but I won't give them away)and I eagerly look forward to the next Ludi Boeken directed film.
