  • Summary: Connie (Vardalos) and Carla (Colette) are two small-town girls whose dreams of stardom have taken them nowhere. In a new place, with new identities, they create a cover (with a lot of cover-up) that makes them the toast of the town -- headlining in a local drag club, they soon find the acclaim that has always eluded them, singing the show tunes they've always loved.

  1. It's the chemistry between Vardalos and Collette that gives the film its magical dazzle. Despite Vardalos' ingratiating, big and breathy presence, Collette, as the pulse and conscience of these two dreamers, very nearly steals the film.
  2. The surprise -- and intermittent delight -- of Connie and Carla is the way that it taps into the everybody-is-a-star passion of the new sing-along culture.
  3. The chief appeal of this affectionate story is its embrace of those who are not thinner, richer and more glamorous than the moviegoers.
  4. 50
    Isn't really a movie but a blatant girls' night out vehicle.
  5. Veteran TV director Michael Lembeck slides the movie into a sitcom mode that only further deadens the thin material. While Vardalos and Collette shine in the musical numbers, why didn't he bother to give the musical sequences a bit of pizzazz?
  6. 40
    Seems as much an imposter in the drag-queen world as its heroines; it fronts the sort of safely asexual gay characters found on network TV.
  7. Reviewed by: David Ng
    One suspects Vardalos's movies aren't written as much as up-chucked, the result of all-night binges on SnackWells and Oxygen network reruns.
