IHGB Movie Review: ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2’

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
Rated: PG-13
Starring: Nia Vardalos and John Corbett
The Trailer:

The Gist: The family is back for another Greek wedding!

My Thoughts:

  1. Remember how the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a delight? The second one is just one step down from that. It’s a fun movie with lots of laughs.
  2. The reason why it’s one step down from the original is because the jokes are familiar. On more than one occasion, I didn’t laugh as hard as I did back in 2002 when I originally heard the zinger.
  3. Never fear, dear reader. John Corbett is as F-I-N-E as he was once upon a time.
  4. I liked how they brought back the entire family for the sequel. When I say the entire family, I mean THE ENTIRE FAMILY. And then some.
  5. I want to be Aunt Voula when I grow up. She completely steals the show in my opinion.
  6. I will implement “pull my neck” the next time I take a picture with my mom. That is a fact.
  7. At one point near the end, I started to cry big tears. I hope you do the same so I don’t feel like such a dork.
  8. The trailer leads us to believe that the movie is about Toula’s daughter, Paris. It sort of is, but the majority of the movie revolves around Toula’s parents. I wish it had been the other way around. It all ties together nicely in the end.
  9. There wasn’t nearly enough OPA! shouting in my opinion.
  10. Paris isn’t as emo as she pretends to be. Her eyes are mesmerizing.
  11. Windex still fixes everything. My mom says the same thing about Sea Breeze astringent.

Survey Says
Some theaters here in Houston sell the first showing of a movie for only $5. If you can swing that in your town, I’d suggest you go see My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 on the big screen. If not, wait a few months and rent it on RedBox or iTunes. You’ll love it!
