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
Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette play women pretending to be men who are pretending to be women by crossdressing aka drag queens. David Duchovny, who stars in this movie, had also starred in Twin Peaks in which he plays a crossdresser. See more »
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 »

I saw this movie and being a fan of Nia, I knew it'd be a great and hilarious movie, Not only is she a great talented funny actress, but a great writer, that knows comedy! I highly recommend people to go see this movie for a great laugh! Nia and Toni have AMAZING voices!!! You don't see much of the brother wanting to get to know his brother and wanting to be ok with what he does. She really put a good lesson in the movie, being love yourself, and respect others. Showing women and young girls in this world today that you don't need to throw up to be skinny, eat what you want, and love that body, b/c it's the only one you have. Movies don't show much about that. This was definately something different!
