A young Greek woman falls in love with a non-Greek and struggles to get her family to accept him while she comes to terms with her heritage and cultural identity.
I'm going to take this opportunity to talk about suicide.
I was fucking around on my phone yesterday and came across a picture that Jacob Bannon of Converge had posted on his instagram. It was of a bag of coffee he had purchased from sipofhope.org, and all the proceeds went to HOPE FOR THE DAY (hftd.org), a non-profit out of Chicago that helps kids use music and the arts to keep themselves from committing suicide. See this really appeals to me.
Throughout my life suicide has always been an option that had some sort of appeal to me. There have always been points in my life that seem so overwhelming that the best, simplest solution seems to be for me…
A broad but affable charmer, the Nia Vardalos-penned "My Big, Fat Greek Wedding" offers an entertaining look at family, heritage, and the universal pitfalls of breaking into and out of one's culture. Directed by Joel Zwick, the small-scale comedy is sweet, neatly assembled, and warmly engaging.
An ugly-duckling, romantic comedy, "My Big, Fat Greek Wedding" follows Vardalos' Toula as she, at 30-years-old, attempts to make her own way in life. Toiling away in her family's Greek restaurant for far too long, Toula breaks free from the culturally locked grind by going to community college, changing her hair, and falling in love. Falling in love is secondary to Toula's other successes, but it fuels the culture-clash comedy that drives the film's…
What better film to put on a double-bill with Die, Die, My Darling than a sleeper hit rom-com about an ugly duckling 30-something singleton who transforms into a smokin' hot babe, then proceeds to conquer the objections of her very traditional Greek family in order to inexplicably find true love in the arms of one of the wimpiest beta-males who's ever chowed down on a plate of tofu and arugula?
Yeah, haters are gonna hate, but c'mon, admit it, you laughed every time Gus said, "Put some Windex on it."
CHEESY AS FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.
I think I have found it, my least favorite movie ever.
I never give 1/2 stars, never in my life except for that shit documentary I saw; but this was the exception, and not once in 7 years I began to look at movies with a critical eye have I ever given a score below a 1/5. Today marks the day that streak has broke.
I hated the woman in this movie. She starts off as potentially interesting with a severe disadvantage as she is in everyone's shadow. Then she instantly, and I mean through a quick mini montage, she gets what she wants by being attractive through the work of make up and instantly she has her love interest…
This was the first non-kids movie I was ever taken to see in theaters. I was nine. I remember sitting there, slightly amused by all the antics but constantly wondering when it was going to end. I was excited to re-watch this as an adult, and finally experience it as a real movie and not just 'boring adult movie my parents wanted to see'.
I had the exact same experience.
"Bij vlagen zien we dat er wel degelijk meer in had gezeten – de net iets te gemene geintjes van Toula’s broer bijvoorbeeld – maar die momenten blijven tot een minimum beperkt. Nia Vardalos overtuigt als muurbloempje (haar oneliners aan het begin van de film zijn erg fijn!), maar heeft niet het charisma om de hele film te dragen. Bijrolacteurs als Gia Carides, Lainie Kazan, Andrea Martin en Joey Fatone krijgen (te) weinig te doen; alleen Constantine als de goedwillende maar niet altijd even subtiele vader van Toula krijgt de mogelijkheid zich te profileren in zijn rol. Regisseur Joel Zwick (vooral bekend van televisieseries als “Full House” en “Step by Step” filmde oerdegelijk maar saai, waardoor de film in visueel opzicht weinig interessant is. Maar ook al is ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ verre van perfect, de film kijkt met zijn anderhalf uur makkelijk weg en Vardalos zal er niemand mee tegen het zere been stoten."
just. so good
Comedia romántica amable basada en el choque de culturas más que en gags elaborados. Mola
i almost wasnt gonna log this cos its too embarassing that i actually sat down and watched the entirety of this movie but hey im on a fucking roll! im tired of my no good cynical self and just wanna enjoy watching two people fall in love let me live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
when they first introduced ian my mum turned to me and said "ew, if this was on tinder i would definitely swipe left"........ why is she like this
Seeing this again before I take down the sequel, I have now given this film two chances and I still cannot see why people loved this so much. The idea of some ginormous annoying family just turns me off.
I also never felt Vardalos and Corbett had very good chemistry you know. Like he sees her first as this total geek and falls for her? Not sure I buy that...cause hello, us geeks in real life never have that.
There are a many characters in this and I just found it to be too much. Too many zany characters just because. Like no one in her family is normal.
A few chuckles to be found, but it's one of the romance films I just can't get into.
Never wanted to watch this because every time I caught short clips, the film looked so dated.
Finally gave it chance, and I loved it. So precious.
Undemanding in all its aspects but enjoyable - especially the soundtrack.
this movie isnt amazing lol but half of my family is greek and everything in this movie is true and it's so funny also i'm bad at writing movie reviews haha lol bye
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
