Movie Categories

MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING (2016) starring Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, and Michael Constantine is the greatly anticipated follow up to one of the highest grossing romantic comedies of all time. Earning over 240 million dollars, the original MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING (2002) managed this incredible feat without even reaching the number one spot at the box office. This 2016 second installment, filmed in Toronto and once again written by star Nia Vardalos, will never match the original’s performance even though she managed to work each of the first film’s memorable characters back into her new screenplay.

With the recession having already claimed both the Portokalos’s travel agency and drycleaners, the entire family is feeling the financial pinch as they are left to concentrate their combined efforts on the family restaurant. As Toula and Ian’s daughter Paris prepares to graduate from high school, the family is forced to deal with a surprise wedding and the ensuing emotional rollercoaster weakly powered by lukewarm jokes, repeat storylines, and of course the ever present bottle of Windex. With nothing new offered in MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 2, this second installment feels like little more than an extended epilogue of the original movie.

Disappointingly bland with poor box office numbers, I was surprised to hear that in June of 2016, Nia Vardalos has publically hinted at the possibility of a third. When will Hollywood learn that one successful movie does not always have to be followed by a sequel? Directed by Kirk Jones, Rated PG-16, 94 minutes, Comedy, Drama, **2 stars out of 5.
