My Big Fat Greek Wedding Reviews
For all its stereotypes and well-worn plot, it is very well written and full of richly drawn characters. And I laughed quite a lot.
The culture clash that takes part in the movie was excellently written and produced, with bits of fun truth about both lifestyles. This film also shows the hilarity of having a family in our present day and how every family has it's weird quirks and mannerisms. The movie is rather clean, except for a part where it hints that two people are being intimate, but nothing is seen by the viewer. A plus to this movie is that it is "Tom Hanks" approved, he and his wife are producers of this big hit!
The movie can be very stereotypical as the two cultures can be very inaccurate, but out of common sense most people know that those situations are not real. (Not to mention that they make the movie WAY better.) Toula Portokalos's (Nia Vardalos) relationship with her family gives everyone a laugh and really pulls you into the movie.
Though John Corbett might not be the best actor for the part of Toula's boyfriend (and husband), but this flaw is the least of the movie's troubles and still lets the viewer have an enjoyable time. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" is a humorous and uplifting film, making it an excellent choice for anyone's movie night!
