Vardalos is Patrick Swayze to Collette's Hugo Weaving.

Connie and Carla plays like a genial amateur theatrical, the kind of production where you'd like it more if you were friends with the cast.

To imitate Vardalos and crib from Some Like It Hot, nobody's perfect.

The two stars give sparkle to a likable but woefully thin and guileless tale.

Timid, mousy and humorless.

Nia Vardalos should have cut right to the chase and named the characters Lucy and Ethel.

Cole Smithey

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.

For all of Wedding's mediocrity, Connie and Carla is even more of a drag.

Combustible Celluloid

You need at least a passing tolerance for bad musicals to make it through the very broad Connie and Carla without wincing. Even then it's a struggle.

Movie Eye

In director Michael Lembeck's disjointed gender-bender musical comedy Connie and Carla, the mediocrity oozes out much like the intolerable sounds from a rusty trumpet

It is a shoddy pastiche of dumb jokes and horrible overacting lashed together with a storyline cribbed entirely from other, better films.

I am convinced Vardalos wrote Connie and Carla just so she could kiss David Duchovny. It wasn't to make us laugh (trust me on that one).

Connie and Carla is bargain-matinee entertaining, like a sitcom you watch when nothing better is on.

Jeanne Aufmuth
Palo Alto Weekly

The project has crowd-pleaser written all over it, but it's that brand of smirky, trying-too-hard entertainment that reeks of desperation.

little more than a center stage showcase for screenwriter/star Vardalos and, unfortunately, she is not up to the task in either case

So cliché-ridden and obvious that any sparks the performers may have are quickly smothered in dullness.

[Vardalos] never met a bad joke she doesn't love, never met a stereotype she won't exaggerate to a breaking point... and can't seem to get past a sitcom mentality.
