Just the other day I was saying to myself, “Self, whatever happened to David Duchovny?” Then I saw the trailer for “Connie and Carla” and low and behold, there he is.

Well, Nia Vardalos did pretty well with “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” so now comes round two. She and Toni Collette play Connie and Carla. They’re lounge singers where no one appreciates them. Then they witness a mob killing so they head out of town deciding that Los Angeles would be a low-key kind of place to hide out. They end up finding work singing for a dinner theater, only they are posing as drag queens, which is where it looks like most of the jokes are coming from, women playing drag queens. Connie’s problem is that she meets Jeff (Duchovny), likes him, only she’s posing as a drag queen so she can’t make a move on him. Hilarity ensues.

Nia showed she has her finger on the pulse of the nation with the Wedding movie, which she wrote, so we’ll she if she’s still pulsing because she wrote this movie as well. This looks like another hit because I think every woman in America will drag their hubbies to this just like they did with Greek Wedding.

That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
