    By J.A. VINE VOICE on September 25, 2004
    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.

    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 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.

    Many of you probably haven't heard of this movie, it was made in 2004, after My Big Fat Greek Wedding and stars Nia Vardalos, Toni Collette, and David Duchovny. The girls are running away from the mob because the got the wrong luggage which belongs to them. They take cover, undercover, posing as drag queens who can truly sing. One of my favorite feel good movies, right up there with 13 Going On 30 and Uncle Buck.

    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.
