About Connie and Carla
Connie (Academy Award® nominee Nia Vardalos) and Carla (Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette) are two small-town girls who have to abandon their current gig slinging drinks and belting out tunes at a Midwestern airport when their boss ends up on the wrong end of a mob, that they unfortunately happen to witness. So they pack up their extensive collection of wigs and costumes and head for L.A. In a new place with new identities, they create a cover that makes them the toast of the town: headlining in a local drag club, they soon find the acclaim that has always eluded them, singing the show tunes they've always loved. Being famous is a dream come true, who cares if it includes a tiny little lie? But trying to keep their secret turns out to be a real drag, especially when Connie meets Jeff (David Duchovny), a real nice guy she'd like to be a real girl with.
