My Life in Ruins

Critics Consensus

With stereotypical characters and a shopworn plot, My Life in Ruins is a charmless romantic comedy.

Movie Info

Georgia (Nia Vardalos) came to Greece to follow a man. A few years later, she's been cast aside -- alone and adrift in a foreign land. Eventually, her passion for history leads her to a job as a tour guide. But Georgia is bored, and has lost her "kefi" (Greek for mojo) to boot. When taciturn sasquatch Poupi (Alexis Georgoulis) replaces the regular driver at the last minute, the frazzled tour guide thinks that her luck has just hit rock bottom. Thankfully, Georgia's latest batch of tourists is a more lively bunch than she's anticipated, and in between bouts with rival tour guide Nico (Alistair McGowan), she manages to form a genuine connection with wisecracking widower Irv (Richard Dreyfuss), a solo vacationer who maintains a jovial facade despite the fact that he misses his late wife dearly. With a little help from Irv, Georgia comes to realize that true love may be closer than she thinks -- if she could just recapture her kefi and open her eyes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    This is not a Big, Fat, Greek wedding. But could be some feta for a night on the couch when you are maybe coming down with the flu and are trying to do a little work and just need some background noise?

    This was poke-my-eyes-out awful. Oh, and to Australians, the Australian accents in this movie are the most funny part of the whole thing. When will Hollywood learn to hire Aussie actors instead of trying, huh?

    It was okay but it's just so predictable and forgettable.

    I loved Nia Valdaros in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" but the writing for this movie lacked the same charm.
