My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Critics Consensus

Though it sometimes feels like a television sitcom, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is good-hearted, lovable, and delightfully eccentric, with a sharp script and lead performance from Nia Vardalos.

Movie Info

Everyone in the Portokalos family worries about Toula (Nia Vardalos). Still unmarried at 30 years old, she works at Dancing Zorba's, the Greek restaurant owned by her parents, Gus (Michael Constantine) and Maria (Lainie Kazan). After taking a job at her aunt's travel agency, she falls in love with Ian Miller (John Corbett), a teacher who is tall, handsome and definitely not Greek. Toula isn't sure which will be more upsetting to her father, that Ian is a foreigner or that he's a vegetarian.

  • Second City alum Nia Vardalos stars in this ethnic comedy, which she also wrote -- an ambitious way to break into a leading role; too bad the results are insubstantial.

  • The result feels a little over-egged at times and the love match lacks chemistry, but Ian's whistlestop induction into a different style of language, food, drink, dress and dancing allows a few good one-liners.

  • It's enjoyable, with a cracking performance from Michael Constantine as Toula's father Gus.

  • This will have all non-Greeks in the audience wishing they could lay claim to some Mediterranean heritage.

  • You don't have to be Greek to enjoy My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and that's precisely the point of it.

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.
