Connie and Carla

nia_connie_and_carla.gifTake Some Like It Hot and Victor/Victoria and you get Connie and Carla. The movie is not remarkable on any level and re-hashes every tired drag queen motif and joke you’ve seen countless times but still remains quite entertaining. A well-handled sub-plot of familial acceptance is a counterbalance to the crazed antics of Nia and Toni. The showtunes sequences are a ball though with lots of medlies and enough nods to musical theatre geekdom to keep me entertained. It will be a great in-flight movie or in regular rotation on TV. It’s tame enough to be accessible and nutty enough to be ‘overt’ – sort of like Birdcage. Ron wants to see it again – he loved it and giggled a lot.

  1. on the flipside: it’s nice to see a canadian girl from Winnipeg(aka winter pig)make it in “the big city”.

    at least we’re not maids, drivers or slaves…..

    COMMENT:
    Sounds like something my other half would like to see. He made me watch Some like it hot, and I’m pretty sure he has seen Victor/Victoria before..

    Maybe I’ll suggest it to him
