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 »

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...
