Assuming the killers will never look for them in a place devoid of culture, the pair head to Los Angeles, where they assume new identities and find their middling talent at song and dance perfectly suited to new careers; as drag queens! Much to their surprise, they inadvertently become the toast of the cabaret circuit. As their ruse becomes increasingly difficult to maintain, they discover that it is indeed lonely at the top, especially after Connie meets Jeff (Duchovny), a guy she'd really like to be a real girl with... With the mafia zeroing in and the line separating their onstage/offstage personas blurring beyond the point of recognition, Connie and Carla soon discover the power of not compromising to pursue your dreams, fighting the good fight, and never, ever underestimating the transformative power of cosmetics. Actors Toni Collette, Nia Vardalos, David Duchovny, Robert John Burke & Chris Logan Director Michael Lembeck Certificate 12 years and over Year 2004 Screen Widescreen 1.85:1 Anamorphic Languages English - Dolby Digital (5.1) Duration 1 hour 35 minutes (approx)

Exuberant gender-bending comedy punctuated with musical numbers, starring Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette as best friends Connie and Carla. The two women have always dreamed of fame and fortune, but are instead stuck with a career on the bottom rung of the showbiz ladder, playing Chicago's wine bar circuit and approaching middle age fast. After witnessing the murder of a nightclub owner, the pair are forced to go on the run and conceal their true identities. Arriving in Los Angeles, the women soon discover an ingenious way to let their many talents shine: they pose as drag queens in a gay club - an act that gets complicated when Connie finds herself falling in love with Jeff (David Duchovny), a straight guy who comes to the club to look for his cross-dressing brother...
