4.0 out of 5 stars
Feel good fantastic!, 25 Oct. 2004
Genius! The opening sequence and 1st scene of this film is one of the best comic scenes! The film is fab - but worth seeing for this singing scene alone. Both Nia Vardalos who wrote the script and plays Connie and Toni Collette who plays Carla are fantastic and work togehter brilliantly. David Duchovny also makes an apperance as Jeff, Connie's love intrest, although in my opinion is shown up by Nia Vardalos superior acting. The script is well written and has many laugh out loud moments as well as touching scenes.
Connie : We need to hide someplace where there are no dinner theaters. In fact, we need to hide someplace where is no theater period, no culture whatsoever.
Carla : Los Angeles.
Basic plot - after accidentally witnessing a mafia hit in chicago, Connie and Carla skip town for L.A., where they go undercover as singers working the city's dinner theater circuit ... as drag queens.
Dont think 'Some like it hot' - this film is better - film for both sex's and makes a great date movie.If u want a laugh out loud, feel good film with a well written script - buy this movie, if its for the hysterical 1st scene only!!!!!
Connie : We're gonna be LA girls now, we gonna have to work out.
[Connie and Carla think for a second, then laugh hysterically]
Carla : Good one.
