April 21, 2004
So cliché-ridden and obvious that any sparks the performers may have are quickly smothered in dullness.
April 21, 2004
There doesn't seem to be much here that comedy director Michael Lembeck could save; it's a lopsided script laced with flat-footed humor and lazy characterization.
April 21, 2004
A flat, predictable and unbelievable movie that mostly seems an excuse for Vardolos to perform a bunch of show tunes and make faces at the camera.
April 19, 2004
This contemporary version of "Some Like it Hot" is mostly, well, a drag.
April 19, 2004
... just awful.
April 18, 2004
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
April 17, 2004
Plays like a watchable sitcom, sporadically amusing but without enough material to warrant being feature-length.
April 17, 2004
plays like amateur hour on the backlot
April 17, 2004
Isn't really a movie but a blatant girls' night out vehicle.
April 17, 2004
...This could end her career and that would be a real shame. Nia deserves more than to be a one-hit wonder.
April 16, 2004
[An] uneven and overly busy comedy.
April 16, 2004
Connie And Carla never manages to rise above the airport-lounge aesthetic of its title characters.
April 16, 2004
Someone should tell Vardalos this is well-trod territory.
April 16, 2004
C&C is lazy, sugary, and fluffy, but it's simply entertaining enough not to be a complete train wreck.
April 16, 2004
The only drag is this picture.
April 16, 2004
The whole enterprise is scrubbed clean of the very quirks such a comedy craves.
April 16, 2004
As with Big Fat, Vardalos' specialty here is toothless, inoffensive humor that trades heavily in obvious cliches.
April 16, 2004
Things go as predictably as you'd expect, with the film simply meandering from one cabaret musical number to another before it finally gets around to the big showdown.
April 16, 2004
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.
April 16, 2004
The movie's script is excruciatingly clumsy.
