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.

Georgia is an American academic who's lost her teaching job in Athens. She's taken a job as a tour guide, but she hates it and it shows: the tourists, mostly American, are bored with history and facts; they want to shop. Every group has a goofy couple, a frat boy, a sullen teen, a feuding couple, divorcées looking for a mate, and a funny guy. This group is no exception, plus there's no air conditioning and a bearded silent driver. Thanks to an unlikely friendship, plus daisies, an ice-cream cone, the history of syrup, and the Oracle at Delphi, Georgia may have a shot at finding her kefi during this four-day tour. Written by
If you want to be happy, go See This Movie. I saw this film at a screening in San Diego and am so happy it is getting released this summer! It's funny, charming and above all, very romantic. It will definitely make you want to visit Greece but if you can't afford to travel, this movie is a great escape for about ten dollars. The scenery is amazing, and this movie made me laugh out loud. This sexy new movie star Alex G is amazing. Nia Vardalos is so perfect for this role. She and Alex G have great chemistry. And, Richard Dreyfuss is sly and sweet and Rachel Dratch is hilarious in anything she does. (little fact: She and Nia V worked at the comedy theater "The Second City", in Chicago together.) I left the theater with a smile, and wished there were more films like this out there. It's a great summer movie and a great date movie and just a fun time."
