The book was released a few weeks before the film. It's about two young women named Connie and Carla(portrayed by Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette in the film) who run away to form a lounge act in various locations. They sing songs from various musicals including THERE ARE WORSE THINGS I COULD DO from "Grease"(both the musical and the 1978 film). Connie had a longtime dream of meeting her idol Debbie Reynolds. A short time later,BOOM! Reynolds appeared. Now Connie,Carla and Debbie are singing together. Connie and Carla were eluding mafia hitmen who are owed money from the girls and commit murder. As for the film,it got mixed reviews. It was a disappointment compared to Vardalos' previous film,MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING. Vardalos wrote or co-wrote the CONNIE & CARLA screenplay(she wrote MBFGW also).
