5.0 out of 5 stars It's like Romy and Michelle...with songs!, 19 April 2006
This review is from: Connie and Carla [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
Connie and Carla is a camp rhapsody of song, make-up, and drag. The leading ladies in this film have truly outstanding musical voices, and enough energy to lift anyone's spirits after a long day at work. I recommend you make yourself some popcorn, take out a bottle of wine, slip into something comfortable, and then sit down to an hour and twenty minutes of pure entertainment. The film follows in the footsteps of camp classics like Romy and Michelle and Sister Act, and is packed with all the ingredients you would expect to find in a light-hearted all-American comedy: the not-so-scary gangsters, the hazardous road-trip, the blossoming romance, the occasional melodrama,singing, dancing, and not forgetting - did I already mention them? - drag queens. As Connie and Carla go on the run after witnessing a mob killing, they find sanctuary in a drag club (don't we all). In need of a job, and desperate not to be hunted down by the bad guys, they audition for a drag show...and the rest, as they say, is hysterical. The DVD has some juicy extras, including some deleted scenes and commentary. I always enjoy a good bit of camp, but maybe that says more about me than the film...? Happy viewing!
