Vardalos, who once again wrote the screenplay and also stars, has built this sequel on the premise that everything that happened in the previous film should be recreated in the second, but in a way that feels even less organic.

Like roadside diner baklava, if it's a little dry in places, there's enough honey to make it sweet.

Flames out with moments cheesier than saganaki and more honeyed than the sickly sweetest baklava. The empty-nest nonsense is cringingly overwrought, with moments to curdle your blood into month-old tzatziki.

Some of the callbacks to the first movie will probably charm the die-hards, but I'm guessing the most satisfying moment for most people will be when My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 finally ends.

Feels like a show that's been on the air for 14 years, and we're just tuning in randomly for a season finale, while at times it also feels like a show trapped in the past.

Regressive on all fronts, a broad, shallow thing, miles wide and an inch deep.

Here's an invitation to decline.

... showcases the same broad stereotypes and sugary predictability of its predecessor, but without the same freshness to the characters or the scenario.

Die-hard fans won't be able to resist Vardalos and Corbett's lovely on screen chemistry and just enough heartfelt moments to reconnect with the first film's love story. But the more casual fan won't mind not getting an invite.

There are a few amusing moments and some stalwart comic performances, but on the whole this is an unremarkable and instantly forgettable experience.

Watching the movie is something like blowing dandelion seeds: a brief moment of joy that passes quickly, meaninglessly disappearing into thin air, and you forget it ever happened.
March 31, 2016
This is one for die-hard fans of the first flick and just about nobody else.

[A] painfully unfunny carbon copy.
March 31, 2016
Comes across like a too talkative and boring party guest.
March 30, 2016
Predictable wackiness ensues, with Jones encouraging each cast member to go as broad and frantic as possible. Yet the film does tap into real-world anxieties many viewers will share.
March 30, 2016
Little more than a time capsule.

It would've been better if Nia Darvalos just left these characters alone. [Full review in Spanish]

A film that feels like an average sitcom episode. [Full review in Spanish
March 28, 2016
While My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is redeemed somewhat by an underlying well-intentioned sweetness, it's a tired and dated little movie that might have been made in the 1980s.
March 28, 2016
Humourless tosh.
