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.

A captivating comedy with a heart of gold, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a must-see for its sheer unbridled delightfulness. An Amelie for 2002?

It offers the illusion of originality by bombarding audiences with Greek stereotypes, but really clings to the formulaic romance comedy.

Ms. Vardalos' has loaded her charmingly fluffy script with cute idiosyncrasies in place of actual characters.

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.

Endearing eccentricities, such as Toula's father's improvisational Greek etymologies of words like "kimono" and his reliance on Windex for a range of external-use medicinal purposes, help humanize the characters.

It's funny, it's familiar and you can see a lot of the situations transferring over to your own life.

It is a romantic comedy in the best classic Hollywood style, albeit one with some sharp writing and genuinely human as well as funny moments.

Vardalos is not a great actress, but she is a likeable one ... John Corbett will never steer you wrong ... a cute premise, but it has all been done before

The family-friendly film avoids pitfalls, but the DVD is skimpy.

Now, Nia Vardalos will jump out of your movie screen or television set...and club you over the head with a bottle of Windex until you give in to her aggressively overbearing humor!

...Captures the nature of true romance, with just enough slapstick (a Greek invention) to make you laugh out loud.

The actors...bring out an attractive, warmhearted simplicity in each character. Above all, they portray a close, loving family, the film's ultimate and lasting virtue.

A cute little movie whose success proves that wherever they can find it, people will rise up and embrace the most mediocre, bland, and reassuring forms of art.

Almost everyone growing up believes their family must look like "The Addams Family" to everyone looking in... "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" comes from the heart...

On the whole, this film didn't make me laugh much, didn't make me 'aaaaaah' much and didn't give me any more insight into its astronomical popularity.
