My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

my big fat greek wedding 2 official poster

Release year: 2016

Director: Kirk Jones

Screenwriter: Nia Vardalos

Starring: Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Elena Kampouris, Michael Constantine, Lainie Kazan, Andrea Martin, Gia Carides, Alex Wolff

Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett) are married and their teenage daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) is feeling some of the samme struggles her mother felt as a young woman. The marriage is struggling and Toula and Ian try to rekindle their strong feelings while dealing with their only child growing up and then suddenly, an unexpected new wedding appears.

The Portokalos family from Vardalos’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) is such a delight that most would rejoice a very welcome return to them and their quirky ways, but despite good efforts the sequel never reach the height of the first. Perhaps it is unfair to compare the two, as the first was a fresh breath of air in the rom-com genre, with Vardalos’s charming look on her heritage. Vardalos is still the Toula we know, marriage has thankfully left her her own unique self while Corbett (Raising Helen, 2004) remains the calm in the Greek storm. While the marriage struggle is sad it is nice to see a realistic set-up of a couple crisis, where they attack the problem in unison and with the usually charm they showed in the first movie. The rest of the cast returns to portray everyone’s favourite Greek family with Kampouris (Labor Day, 2013) ┬áthe charming newcomer. It is still entertaining following Toula and her relatives and the Portokalos still has things to offer.
