One Good Laugh Deserves Another.
19 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Yes, this Laverne & Shirly type of comedy is better than anything else released so far in 2004. Toni Collette has always delighted me in her accidental roles that get into trouble by mistake. This one goes for the gold, and the ambition as two light headed singers are intwined with a big mob screw-up! What do you do? Well of course, you disguise yourself! As for the drags n fags, can't comment, not one of them, but art is well spoken in this film, and Vardalos makes it fun with good clean cut, slapstick situations which bring down the two leading women to a mistaken ending, for the better. Collette and Vardalos are sizzelin hot! Duchoveny is honest, and the rest, well, the are believable. Pure fun like an Ellen DeGeneres comedy hour, this one never takes itself to seriously, or too foolish either. Give it a chance, you might like it.
