Breezy and brassy comedy about two struggling Chicago-based lounge singers (Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette), who, after witnessing a gangland execution, hightail it to Los Angeles to hide out, disguising themselves as drag queens and who wind up becoming overnight sensations, headlining in a cross-dressing cabaret show. Director Michael Lembeck's film strikes a palatable, though at times preachy, tone, poking fun at the flamboyant female impersonators while stressing their humanity. A sympathetic portrayal of the gay lifestyle, recurring sexual humor, a sacrilegious comment, an instance of same-sex kissing, intermittent crude language and a few drug references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
