My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)


Movie Review

Directed by: Joel Zwick

Starring: Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan, Michael Constantine, Andrea Martin, and Joey Fatone

The women of the Portokalos family are steeped in family tradition.  They are expected to marry a Greek man and have Greek children.  At the ripe old age of 30, Toula Portokalos  (Nia Vardalos) has failed by doing neither of these things.  She works at the family restaurant and really has no relationship prospects at the moment.  When she comes across Ian Miller (John Corbett), however, things change for her.  They quickly fall in love and get engaged, but there’s one problem.  Ian is not Greek.  Though he is baptized in the Greek Orthodox Church, Toula’s family does not take too kindly to the matrimony and will put every obstacle in the couple’s way before they walk down the aisle to take their vows.  Joel Zwick’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a fun, heartwarming film that delivers nonstop laughs.  Check this rom com out as soon as you can.
