Just Don't
9 September 2004 | by teamheroSee all my reviews

Connie & Carla is bad. Very, very bad. If you want to see a movie like this, I suggest Priscilla Queen Of The Desert... funny movie, hitting all the right notes. Connie & Carla doesn't. Think Some Like It Hot... then go and watch that instead. For this is the same story, almost exact, but lame. Oh so very lame. The "jokes" that some people find so hysterically "laughed out my chair" funny, aren't. The acting is below average. You would have a more fun time by closing your eyes and dying. I'm sorry but I have dedicated too many words to this movie, all I wanted to write was that the film was extremely bad and should never be viewed, but I have to fill ten lines of text to warn all those tempted! Seriously, you'll be very angry...
