Connie and Carla

Rated 1.0 Nia Vardalos, writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, penned this stupid movie about two women (Vardalos and Toni Collette) who witness a murder and move to Los Angeles to escape being snuffed. They take their singing aspirations to the extreme when they audition for a drag show masquerading as men. They get the job and become a hit, even though I’m quite sure that there is not much in this world worse than the sight and sound of these women warbling. Vardalos’ star shot high with the initial release of Wedding, but her failed TV spinoff, and now this, has her wearing out her welcome fast. The normally reliable Collette is irritating as the dim bulb of the duo, and its no wonder that David Duchovny has gone on record as wanting to do another X Files movie. His participation in this dreck is proof that the old career is suffering mightily. If you think two tone-deaf women belting out show tunes from Oklahoma and Yentl sounds like a blast, then knock yourselves out. As for me, having to watch stuff like this leaves me convinced that I am not one of God’s favorites.
