Best pals Connie (Nia Vardalos) and Carla (Toni Collette) have a song-and-dance act at a Chicago airport, but they go on the run after witnessing a murder. In Los Angeles, they glimpse the city's drag queen scene, and believing that stage success is just a wardrobe change away, they become female impersonators. They fall into a circle populated by Connie's beau, Jeff (David Duchovny), and bar owner Stanley (Ian Gomez). But the killers want to make sure the women never tell what they know.

    A clever idea, but it's not quite pulled off. show more

    Vardalos' comedic style is old-fashioned in the worst way; her humor is stodgier than the most retro Catskills laughmeister. show more

    The chief appeal of this affectionate story is its embrace of those who are not thinner, richer and more glamorous than the moviegoers. show more

    Nia & Toni Collette romp in this musical comedy. Both actresses are surprisingly great in a musical setting as well as playing the drag queens.
