A mob mix-up in Chicago sends two chanteuses screaming for L.A., where they score a perfect gig: posing as drag queens on the dinner theater/cabaret circuit. Things get extra-weird when a guy falls for one of the girls.
After accidentally witnessing a mafia hit in the Windy City, gal pals Connie and Carla skip town for L.A., where they go way undercover as singers working the city's dinner theater circuit ... as drag queens. Now, it's not enough that they become big hits on the scene; things get extra-weird when Connie meets Jeff -- a guy she'd like to be a woman with.Written by

For pete's sakes, I've seen all those other movies just like the rest of ya - Some Like It Hot, Priscilla, all the rest. No, this isn't that. Yes, there are lots of similarities.
We're sitting here four years into the most oppressive administration in US history, and we need a lighten up. Fun as it is we can't watch Nemo every single night.
The simple truth is that this movie is fun. Set aside the attitude, let your Higher Standards go, and just simply enjoy the fun. Toni is one of the finest actresses of our day. Nia is a fine up and coming talent. Show tunes are fun. Fun!
Worry about the Higher Standards another day.
