Product description

Exuberant gender-bending comedy punctuated with musical numbers, starring Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette as best friends Connie and Carla. The two women have always dreamed of fame and fortune, but are instead stuck with a career on the bottom rung of the showbiz ladder, playing Chicago's wine bar circuit and approaching middle age fast. After witnessing the murder of a nightclub owner, the pair are forced to go on the run and conceal their true identities. Arriving in Los Angeles, the women soon discover an ingenious way to let their many talents shine: they pose as drag queens in a gay club - an act that gets complicated when Connie finds herself falling in love with Jeff (David Duchovny), a straight guy who comes to the club to look for his cross-dressing brother...

With echoes of "Some like it Hot" and "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", this is a fairly predictble, but none-the-less enjoyable, comedy about two women who, in order to hide from the mob, disguise themselves as drag queens and become an immensely popular dinner theatre attraction.
The film is directed by Michael Lembeck who has more TV experience than film, which is why this comedy ends up having a little too much of the sit-com feel about it. Not helping that "TV" feel is Nia Vardalos and David Duchovny turning in two fairly two-dimensional, though still perfectly funny, performances. Hugely hilarious is Toni Collette, whose transformation into a drag queen would be scary in its believability if it weren't so funny.
There are instances where the dialogue becomes so sacchrine as to be sickening, and there is a sense that you are sometimes beaten over the head with "the moral of the story", but all that is worth it for the cabaret numbers. Brilliantly staged, at times hilarious, they make this film incredibly watchable.
The DVD transfer is also highly enjoyable - no problems here with the sound or video transfer, and a whole heap of extras. Particularly good were the extended musical sequences, and also the "making of" featurette.
Highly reccommended

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.

By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Nov. 2004
Format: DVD
Connie (Nia Vardalos of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding") and Carla (Toni Collette of "Murielle's Wedding") have been putting on silly cabaret style plays since they were little girls. Now adults, they are doing the same thing in airport lounges to a bored crowd. The comedy is original and the scenes are hilarious. However, as the Editorial Review states, this is a combination of "Victor, Victoria" and "Some Like It Hot". It's not original, but these two actresses have brilliant timing. After witnessing the murder of their lounge act boss at the airport, the two `high-tail' it to Los Angeles to disappear - `accidentally' into the gay drag queen night club scene. There is something incredibly funny about these two actresses in almost every scene they are in (steal). From the bag of exploding cocaine in the station wagon at 65 mph to the constant running and covering whenever someone is about to find out they are `real women'. They are manic and hilarious and carry the humor `over the top' without dumbing down the viewer. It's almost like a modern day Lucy and Ethel, only funnier. So the plot is unoriginal. The lines and delivery are priceless.
The deleted scenes, commentaries, etc. are the only mediocre material here. However, the direction is spot-on and the DTS sound is fantastic, which counts in a movie that is half musical.

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!
