definitely more entertaining that I thought it would be. It's a good take on family accepting someone different.

My 'Big Fat Greek Wedding' may or may not have inspired Jersey Shore, but Greeks and Italians alike have quite a bit in common. This family friendly rom-com has enough laughs, mainly from the parents played by Michael Constantine and Lainie Kazan. A lot of stereotypical Greek humor, some one liners that are just flat funny, and the story here is engaging. John Corbett plays himself as he does in everything he's every been in and writer and lead actress Nia Vardalos does her best. She's able to give her supporting cast depth and keeping it just over 90 minutes the film doesn't outlast its welcome. Final Score 6.9/10

Toula is a woman living her life in Chicago. Toula's family is Greek, but most importantly, they are very close to each other. Even her aunts and uncles are always around them. Toula's father wants her to finally meet a man. Not just any man, but a nice Greek man. Someone who is like the rest of their family/culture. Toula starts dating a non-Greek named Ian. Her father is very upset and tries to set her up with other Greek men through dinners at his house. Her whole family realizes that she is happy with Ian, so they decide that they need to accept that Ian will soon be a part of the family. When Ian and Toula get married is when the families start to except each other more and they learn to love. At the end, Toula and Ian move in right next door to Toula's parent's home in Chicago. This movie is a great family movie that is filled with good clean fun. This movie shows what families are like in different cultures

Harmiton,hauska hömppä, jonka jaksaa katsoa useammankin kerran - ylenpalttisesta kreikkalaisuuden korostamisesta huolimatta. John Corbett on ihku (niinkuin Villissä Pohjolassa ja Sinkkuelämäässäkin).

Although I'm not Greek, many of the jokes about the Greeks can apply to other cultures and backgrounds, so you can relate to this movie pretty much no matter who you are. There are so many characters in this movie, which in itself, is one of the jokes, but it feels like you know them all, and to me it's pretty relatable especially if you come from a large family. The comedy is light and very fun, the family is hilarious, and even if you relate to only a portion of the movie, it is an enjoyable time.

This movie has some charm, but the caricatured family is exhausting.

The story might not be its strongest component, but the actors and a few relatable comedic things/moments stand out.

A Greek wedding ... well thats big, broken plates, a lot of dancing, and a long ass night right? Wrong theirs a lot more to it here.

Funny and charming, My Big Fat Greek Wedding may not have a great premise, but manages to entertain and bring good laughs due to Nia Vardalos' keen script and lovely lead performance.
½ June 21, 2016
Warm, witty and genuinely funny. The characters are crazy but utterly believable and while the story has aspects of cliche, the clash of cultures and a bunch of good performances overcome it thoroughly.
Resonant Line: "Aunt Voula: What do you mean he don't eat no meat? Oh, that's okay. I make lamb."
