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.
After accidentally witnessing a mafia hit in the Windy City, gal pals Connie and Carla skip town for L.A., where they go way undercover as singers working the city's dinner theater circuit ... as drag queens. Now, it's not enough that they become big hits on the scene; things get extra-weird when Connie meets Jeff -- a guy she'd like to be a woman with. Written by

Connie and Carla say a few times throughout the movie that "a cop shot Frank." Rudy shot Frank, as the viewer can plainly see. See more »
this was a surprise, a nice surprise. How delightful to be entertained for a change and leave the movie with a smile on your face. It was almost a continual smile everytime you thought about the movie. Made the world seem sunnier. It was funny, well edited, and gave the audience a few things to think about in the meantime.! It did have a little resemblance to 'some like it hot', but not completely. Talented, smart, funny, and wonderfully canadian 'Via' has given Canada lots to be proud of..! I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to anyone and everyone, and if I get the chance will see it again..thanks our winnipeg star..!
