It manages to rehash the original, almost entirely, while lacking nearly all the things that made the first film, despite its flaws, compelling.

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.

What we're left with is something that recalls Crocodile Dundee in L.A. - the misbegotten notion that bringing back characters long past their sell-by date is a good idea.

Feels about as fresh as two-day old spanakopita.
March 25, 2016
What once bubbled up from a sincere love of Greek family has now congealed into the all-too-familiar Hollywood tale of milking a cash cow until it cries for mercy.

Pass the baklava.
March 25, 2016
It's a big fat Greek dud.
March 25, 2016
Predictable, tired, formulaic, it makes up for its lack of originality with a bigger budget, louder jokes, louder costumes, and louder music.
March 24, 2016
The sequel is a little like a bear hug from a beloved old relative - the embrace is too tight, the perfume is too strong, but ultimately it still leaves you feeling good inside.
March 24, 2016
Nia Vardalos delves into her seemingly endless supply of big crude Greek stereotypes for a sequel to one of the most cancerously patronising romantic comedies of all time.
March 24, 2016
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is as stale as last year's baklava, an attempt to cash in on the 2002 movie without updating some very old-fashioned tropes.

The movie has Andrea Martin, who returns as bossy Aunt Voula, sometimes dispensing her gonzo brand of sexual advice and sometimes confiding her list of bizarre medical curiosities. She alone may be worth the price of admission.

It's comforting to break bread in Vardalos' cheery Chicago enclave again, even if you're being served yesterday's dinner out of the microwave.
March 24, 2016
Vardalos is wonderful, and 88-year-old Michael Constantine casually pockets every scene he's in.
March 24, 2016
This unnecessary sequel reunites most of the cast from the 2002 indie sensation and then lazily recycles its narrative, score, themes, catchphrases, and sight gags almost beat for beat.
March 24, 2016
Old jokes and little plot, but the charming original cast almost compensates.
March 24, 2016
Some elements are even broader while a couple, welcomely, are emotionally truer to life. If you appreciated the first movie's sweetness, then you'll likely be charmed enough.
March 24, 2016
Those who loved the original should at least like the sequel, which remarkably has reunited all of the players from the oversized cast.
March 24, 2016
With so many warmed-over jokes, you'd think that the delivery would at least be on point. But everything, including the timing, feels off.
March 24, 2016
Jones has limited ideas about funny staging. His go-to move is mashing two to 10 people together into an awkward scrum, then cutting to Vardalos or Paris watching with wide-eyed discomfort.
