Actress and writer Nia Vardalos, who became an overnight sensation with My Big Fat Greek Wedding, returns to the big screen with this gender-bending comedy. Connie (Vardalos) and Carla (Toni Collette) are best friends who've shared the same dream ever since they were teenagers -- making a name for themselves in the musical theater. However, after years of treading water on Chicago's dinner theater circuit and playing bottom-of-the-barrel nightclubs, the two are facing middle age with minimal career success. One evening after a performance, Connie and Carla have the misfortune of… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There are funny moments ... but the film grows progressively more dispirited."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"It may not be subtle, but, like drag itself, Connie and Carla affords a few corny, if artless, pleasures."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"The plot is nothing new; not much here for teens."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"muitos espectadores talvez julguem melhor economizar o dinheiro do ingresso do cinema, utilizando-o para comprar o CD do filme."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A good-natured but self-indulgent camp comedy lacking in originality, character and comic timing."
‑ Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
"... just awful."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Connie And Carla never manages to rise above the airport-lounge aesthetic of its title characters."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"For audiences who adored "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," Nia Vardalos' follow up movie (she wrote both scripts) will come as a big fat letdown."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Vardalos is a much better actress than she is a writer, and the patchy script has a desperate, thrown-together feeling to it, as if she had to scramble to come up with something after Wedding's gargantuan success."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Full marks for trying a radical change of direction, and nul points for inflicting the ghastly mess on us"
‑ James Christopher, Times [UK]
"Isn't really a movie but a blatant girls' night out vehicle."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"Connie and Carla is one of those movies that sneaks up on you, in spite of yourself."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"The movie does offer some genuine guffaws as it trips over itself to be all things to all people."
‑ Lisa Ann Cockrel, Christianity Today
"Some like it lukewarm? Well, they're welcome to it."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"There's some fun to be had here, but not quite enough, and the film is burdened by its tired message that drag queens are human beings too."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
