I hate our name.
I think it's beautiful.

Connie (Nia Vardalos) and Carla (Toni Collette) have been putting on musical shows since their school days. Although the audiences are mostly small and nonplussed, they keep plugging away, singing their hearts out. After witnessing a mobster's murder, however, they head from the heartland to Los Angeles. There, by a strange turn of events, they score as drag queens in a gay bar. It's good cover from the mob that's after them but, how will it affect their chances for romance? This is a darling movie with plenty of spunk and sparkle. Vardalos and Collette are funny and charming as the gals with a big secret under their costumes. David Duchovny, as always, gives a vibrant, appealing performance as the love interest for Connie. The costumes are just amazingly wonderful and abundant. Then, too, the gentlemen who portray the other drag queens are touching, amusing, and brave. If you wish to giggle through a movie with plenty of heart and humanity, this is a good choice. If, however, you are somewhat offended by gay themes and situations, you could skip this film. Those who pass over this movie will nonetheless be missing something special.
