Overview

The cross-dressing comedy Connie and Carla comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the movie's original theatrical aspect ratio. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1, while a French soundtrack has also been recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1. French and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by director Michael Lembeck and star/screenwriter Nia Vardalos. Their conversation is exceedingly light and trivial, although those who are charmed by Vardalos will easily find it as amusing as they will find the film. Extended versions of the movie's production numbers, outtakes, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and a short documentary on Debbie Reynolds round out the extras on this disc. This is a fine DVD for what it is, but the same extras are available on a different disc that also boasts a widescreen transfer of the film. That disc is preferable to this one.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Nia Vardalos probably could have had any project she wanted greenlit after the phenomenal success of My Big Fat Greek Wedding -- easily the biggest sleeper hit in movie history. What she did was fashion a distaff Some Like It Hot that exists solely so that the self-admitted musical theater geek can perform some of her favorite show tunes. On the plus side, the musical performances by Vardalos and co-star Toni Collette are quite good. The duo did their own singing and their voices mesh quite well together. Their joy as they belt out the songs is palpable. Sadly, the rest of the film does not work as well. While the gangster storyline fails to build up either tension or humor, the film's storyline about drag queens seeking acceptance is hammered home with an artistically shameful obviousness. Odds are that anyone interested in a film about women on the run from the mob pretending to be drag queens is already gay friendly, so this entire section of the film is little more than a sermon directed at the converted. And what a boring, unoriginal sermon it is. Greek Wedding may have been slight and derivative, but it was never preachy or earnest. For those that believe in the sophomore slump, Connie and Carla provides a rather fascinating case study.

    Connie & Carla

    Two women, who accidentally witness a murder, go on the run to hide, and end up as two women, pretending to be men, pretending to be women! What's not to love!?

    It's a Drag!

    If you want to just see a movie that makes you feel good, see Connie & Carla.It was funny, romantic and seeing Toni Collett in drag was worth every penny. The musical numbers and the costumes were great. I can't believe the critics didn't like this movie.

    You'll Smile!

    I don't know why the critics panned this movie! It was funny, sweet, and very amusing without trying too hard or pretending to be something more than an excellent afternoon's entertainment.

    Great movie!

    I didn't know what to expect but ended up enjoying every minute of it! Some of the humor is slap you in the face funny while other parts are quite subtle and touching. I've seen it twice and will be watching it again!

    Fun movie

    I'm sorry that this movie didn't get the rave reviews that Greek Wedding did, because this was a fun, forget-your-troubles movie. I never got bored and my tickle bone loved it, too.
