After witnessing a mob hit, two Chicago waitresses (Nia Vardalos, Toni Collette) go to Los Angeles and disguise themselves as drag queens.
" A splashy little romp. "
" Brassy, sassy and laugh-aloud funny in a let's-put-on-a-show way. "
" Isn't really a movie but a blatant girls' night out vehicle. "
" Connie and Carla is one of those movies that sneaks up on you, in spite of yourself. "
" An infectiously funny farce in the Some Like it Hot, Victor/Victoria tradition. "
" The only drag is this picture. "
" A magnificent absurdity. "
" Connie And Carla never manages to rise above the airport-lounge aesthetic of its title characters. "
" The whole enterprise is scrubbed clean of the very quirks such a comedy craves. "
" Despite too much of nearly everything, Connie and Carla is a mostly enjoyable comedy that at its core showcases a rare thing for a studio movie: a true beating heart. "
" ... just awful. "
" The movie is a throwback, unapologetically silly but a little more fun than sophisticated audiences may anticipate. "
" Someone should tell Vardalos this is well-trod territory. "
" Connie and Carla plays like a genial amateur theatrical, the kind of production where you'd like it more if you were friends with the cast. "
" Entertaining and very funny. "
" It may not be subtle, but, like drag itself, Connie and Carla affords a few corny, if artless, pleasures. "
" There are funny moments ... but the film grows progressively more dispirited. "
