The plot is nothing new; not much here for teens.

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.

The movie does offer some genuine guffaws as it trips over itself to be all things to all people.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

muitos espectadores talvez julguem melhor economizar o dinheiro do ingresso do cinema, utilizando-o para comprar o CD do filme.

Vardalos is a much better actress than she is a writer, and the patchy script has a desperate, thrown-together feeling to it, as if she had to scramble to come up with something after Wedding's gargantuan success.

Some like it lukewarm? Well, they're welcome to it.

A good-natured but self-indulgent camp comedy lacking in originality, character and comic timing.

Full marks for trying a radical change of direction, and nul points for inflicting the ghastly mess on us

There's some fun to be had here, but not quite enough, and the film is burdened by its tired message that drag queens are human beings too.

Plays like a bargain basement Some Like It Hot.

If you find meticulously staged, passionately sung anthems about love, beauty, truth, and joy to be tiresome, then don't drop a dime on this film. Otherwise GO!

What Connie and Carla has to teach us about gay people.

Shadows on the Wall

The film's real joy comes in its camp performance pieces, which outrageously poke fun at the guilty pleasures of musical theatre.

"Big Fat Greek Wedding's" huge success was a surprise to me and to Hollywood. It won't have the mass appeal and will make only a fraction of the dough-but this film I get.

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

Connie and Carla reminded me of two Whoopi Goldbergs in Sister Act, and I don't mean that in a bad way.

[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.

...Vardalos rains on her own parade, dragging in a three-course meal of saccharine subplots involving a dishy straight guy (David Duchovny).

I still don't understand how the movie's central gimmick relates to its setup.

There are funny moments ... but the film grows progressively more dispirited.
