Audience Reviews for My Big Fat Greek Wedding

  • Dec 02, 2011
    My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a lovable comedy with lovable characters. Sure, we know from the title she is gonna get married, but its the fun journey that takes us there. There are some memorable and funny moments here, and the wholr film just felt like innocent fun. Nia Vardalos is sweet and funny, and she also has written the script for the film which I found to be very well done. If I had any problems with the movie, its that it just didn't feel as hilarious as it could've been. But nevertheless, this is a good comedy with a good romance, and it was definently worth the watch.

    As a Greek person this movie was only partially accurate and therefore irritates me.

    This is a charmingly tale of Toula, a frumpy Greek woman who meets Ian, the man of her dreams. She devotes herself to making her appearance better in order to attract him whereby they hit it off and fall in love with each other, The only problem is, he's not Greek, a detail that doesn't go over well with her tightly knit family. Funny and romantic, the story works in the sense that it reminds us all that we should embrace our heritage and family quirks because it helps to make us who we are in the end.
