Juan is an aggressive and loud-mouthed football coach; he is at a luxury hotel preparing his team for an important match in a few days time. Belinda is with a group of female singers, also at the hotel. They are completely different characters and take an instant dislike to one another. But in a swimming pool accident they collide, and, nearly dying they recover, but they have exchanged bodies! They are horrified to discover that they are in the wrong bodies, and getting together, they agree that the only way to survive is to co-operate and try to deceive the world into thinking that nothing has happened. But Belinda (in Juan's body) knows nothing about football, and the players just laugh. Juan (in Belinda's body) tries to give tips over a mobile phone. She also visits her fiance about the wedding, but of course the fiance only sees a male body, and there is a surprising moment. Belinda increasingly has second thoughts about the wedding. Juan's musical efforts are equally ... Written by Hazel Freeman

Did You Know?


Eduardo: She's changed since the accident.

Intelligent, hilarious gender bender
16 April 2000 | by GMeleJrSee all my reviews

PUT A MAN IN YOUR LIFE is an unusual gender bender. As overworked as the genre has been the past decade, this farce stands out. Its premise is a change of body experience between a loud-mouthed, macho soccer team manager with all the stereotypical flaws of the Latin male (Tonio Canto' of ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER), and Belinda, a female singer representing the modern European twenty something woman. Fate finds the soccer manager's team and Belinda's singing group at the same hotel one weekend. These two opposites accidentally collide and wake up, near death, having switched bodies. The resulting gender-bending hi-jinx are really a hoot to watch. Throw in more than just a few eccentric characters, and funny plot twists, and the result is a highly original film, with a message, which is very-well delivered. This is a great bed-hopping comedy of errors which appeals to both sexes and is a great film to watch one night you want some intelligent fun.
