Connie und Carla: Directed by Michael Lembeck. With Nia Vardalos, Toni Collette, David Duchovny, Stephen Spinella. A mob mix-up in Chicago sends two chanteuses screaming for L.A., where they score a perfect gig: posing as drag queens on the dinner theater/cabaret circuit. Things get extra-weird when a guy falls for one of the girls.

“u0026quot;Connie and Carlau0026quot; is a delightful light comedy. It describes two young women in a dinner club in Ou0026#39;Hare airport in Chicago. They witness a murder of their manager, and escape to Los Angeles to avoid their own executions. Connie is played by Nia Vardalo of u0026quot;My Big Fat Greek Weddingu0026quot; fame. She gives a pithy performance and one is drawn to her likable character. Toni Collette as Carla also gives a warm performance. Together they portray drag queens in their quest for remaining undiscovered. There is a delightful array of u0026quot;drag queensu0026quot; in the chorus line that punctuates this well organized film. In addition, there is a charming surprise performance by Debbie Reynolds toward the end. I can recommend this film as a very light way to spend ones cinematic experience. It is not great, but it is lots of fun.”
