    From the writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding comes Connie and Carla, the hilarious new comedy the Chicago Sun-Times calls "a total delight!" Best friends Connie and Carla have always dreamed of fame and fortune, but their careers in show business are going nowhere fast. After witnessing a crime, they are forced to go on the run and keep their true identities secret. The dazzling duo stumble on an ingenious way to let their many talents shine. Now with a little luck - and lots of beauty products - they're going straight to the top, with plenty of side-splitting twists and turns along the way! Connie and Carla is an irresistible comedy-adventure filled with fun and loaded with laughter!

    I loved the movie, it was fun and great music.
    Beth Johnston
    Needless to say they need the money, so they dress up to look like drag queens to get the part, and they do!

    Watched this when I was younger with my friend and loved it.

    Format: DVD
    This was a surprisingly entertaining, funny, and charming film. My expectations for it were low, as I expected stereotypical bad acting (sadly, something that we see too often in gay films), bad writing, bad direction, and bad photography. None of that was evident here.

    When Connie and Carla arrived in L.A. after fleeing a Chicago mobster who they saw kill someone, I found their drag queen bit hard to bite. When they first auditioned, they didn't look like drag queens at all. I do understand that this plays into the reality of the situation. Two (clueless) women from Chicago who want to revive the (thankfully) mostly dead concept of dinner theater, wouldn't look like drag queens when they first auditioned to become part of - well, to become THE drag show because they wouldn't have the experience yet telling them how to present themselves as women posing as men posing as women. The problem, though, is that if they look like women while they're auditioning, *every drag queen in the bar* is going to see right through them. This is where we're asked to suspend disbelief, and it's such a small request, it's easily done. Eventually, as they learn their trade, they learn to convincingly.

    This isn't a deep film where difficult questions are asked and answered of the characters. Connie and Carla have a very minor disagreement, and the only tension that exists throughout the course of the film is through David Duchovny's character.

    But it's not supposed to be a deep film. It's supposed to be entertaining, and it succeeds very well on this point. The acting was solid, as was the writing, direction, set, and photography. The gowns were gorgeous (of course they would be, if you watch the Bonus Features you'll see why - gay men designed them), and a few of the catchphrases: "Chickapow", "Your voice is giving me shingles!", and "Your voice is giving me mono!" were hysterical and well delivered.

    Format: DVD
    CONNIE AND CARLA is a cute little comedy starring Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette, two appealing and capable leading ladies and featuring a script that plays like a goofy combo of SOME LIKE IT HOT and VICTOR/VICTORIA.

    After witnessing a horrible crime, Connie and Carla (Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette) decide to go on the run. Arriving in Los Angeles, the girls quickly decide to re-invent their old dinner theatre musical act, and pose as drag queens in a struggling cabaret bar.

    This movie is actually quite delightful. Vardalos and Collette make an irresistible comedy team, and the girls actually sung all their numbers themselves (Collette starred on Broadway in THE WILD PARTY). Debbie Reynolds turns in a hilarious cameo (belting out "There Are Worse Things I Could Do", Rizzo's big number from GREASE), and the supporting cast, led by David Duchovny, Stephen Spinella and Dash Mihok is sensational.

    For musical theatre fans, CONNIE AND CARLA is highly-recommended.

    You can read a synopsis elsewhere. All I have to say is, my 68-year-old mom and I (I'm 40) laughed our BUTTS off! We saw this in its theatrical release, with a decent crowd, and everyone was laughing hard, and often. Looking forward to the DVD to hear what I might have missed while I was laughing! Highly recommended, great performances and great fun!

    Connie and Carla delivers on all fronts. What a true gem of a movie! Nia Vardalos delivers a film far superior to her "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". The laughs keep coming and coming. The humor is spoken and seen. This film is sort of a cross between "Some Like It Hot", "Victor/Victoria" and "Sister Act" - only it stands on its own.
    When they witness a mob hit, Connie and Carla, two sad dinner theatre wanna be's (who are actually relegated to singing in a lounge at the airport), go on the lamb to escape being killed themselves. They escape to the one place where they figure there is no culture - L.A. - but even better West Hollywood - gay mecca for the west coast.
    Getting to this point, the film is awkward as it sets up the scenario. However, it is still quite funny. Once the action moves to West Hollywood, the action gets ridiculously hilarious.
    To earn a living and to achieve their dream of being paid performers, Connie and Carla pretend to be men in drag in a drag show. To do so requires that they wear garish make-up. Toni Collette's make-up alone is a sight gag that had me rolling on the floor more often than I could count. Add to that Collette's perfect (has she ever been anything but in any film?) timing and performance and Vardalos' great facial expressions and you've got a comedy team worthy of noteriety.
    The bald faced innocence with which Connie and Carla believe that dinner theatre is truly a high art form is a further point of hilarity that continues to be milked throughout the film to great success. To that, I must add, one complaint: the stunt casting of Debbie Reynolds. It seemed forced and unnecessary. But that is just me. It didn't diminish my overall enjoyment of the film.

    On the surface, "Connie and Carla" is a standard formula comedy a la "Sister Act" or any kind of fish out of water story. But the movie has so many wonderful musical acts and fresh comedy which makes it unique. I have never seen a mainstream comedy about drag queens before, and this film uses real drag performers as actors. The film gives a glimpse of the art of drag and on the lives of transgendered people.

    The message is about acceptance of people who are different, and this theme is handled beautifully.
