An adorable romantic comedy starring Nia Vardalos & John Corbett about a 30 year old woman that helps her family run their family restaurant, Dancing Zorba's. Toula (Vardalos) is expected to get married to a greek man & run the restaurant until she dies. Then one day she meets Ian Miller (Corbett) who she decides to change the way she looks for him. Then she meets him again when she works at a Travel Agency. They go on a couple dates & they fall in love :) Her family of course doesn't approve because Ian is not Greek. So she has to sneak around with him for a while until Toula's family decides to have Ian baptized. Even more hilarious antics ensue when Ian's family meets Toula's family. This is an heart warming tale of true love & the family who you love at the end of the day no matter how crazy they are :)
A horribly corny and over the top sob story about a pathetic girl turning into a Cinderella type. The entire cast was annoying and almost intolerable, not funny by any means. The fact that this made as much money as it did is extremely alarming.
Great fun, but only if you've had enough exposure to Greek culture to appreciate how good a satire it is, otherwise it's just another American romantic comedy. Filmed in Toronto's Danforth Greek community - it was good to see recognisable locations.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding, is such a funny comedy starring Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, & Lainie Kazan.
This movie shows the good and the bad when a family that is devout Greeks deal with the (Vardalos) getting married to someone that is not of the same heritage....it has many funny scenes worth watching.
Lots of fun, but I was waiting for Toula and Ian to have some kind of fight about his early noncommittal assessment of her "weird" family. Toula seems to be generally okay talking smack about her own family, but I sensed that if someone else even corroborates the fact, she would get defensive.
