    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 Vardalos carved herself a niche with "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" in 2002, and she's still furiously digging away at it with the screechy, unpleasant comedy Connie and Carla. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    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? show more

    The movie's queer delight is contagious. You'll exit lip-synching. show more

    Vardalos and Collette have mighty pipes, but it's Collette who moves with the confidence and flair of a musical theater veteran. Watching this film, I found myself caring less and less about the fairly predictable and safe story and waiting impatiently for the next number. show more

    Connie Ogle Miami Herald

    Vardalos may not have been the best possible Connie. But as Billy Wilder could have told you, nobody's perfect. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Connie and Carla is a good-hearted comedy that missteps by trying to become a moralistic one. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    The cheerfully inane comedy Connie and Carla all but suffocates beneath a high-stepping, show-stopping, ear-splitting deluge of musical theater staples, from "Cats" to "Oklahoma!," "Jesus Christ Superstar" to "Fiddler on the Roof." 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.
