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."
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…
CHEESY AS FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.
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.
A seemingly familiar love story against the backdrop of cultural differences, albeit with next to nil conflict, and it focuses more on the importance of family rather than the romance. Despite being predictable, it basically is a feel-good movie that infuses an interesting glimpse of how the Greeks do it, and doesn't pretend to be anything else.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
one problem: she says that she has 27 first cousins. 27 first cousins alone! Honey, oh, honey. I have 100+. i put the + because i know it's over 100 but i lost count because what's the point??? 27 first cousins is nothing. but this movie gives me a little taste of what it's like, so i love it :3
Have a podcast they said. It'll be fun they said.
Was surprised and completely charmed by this in 2002. And it's still very sweet and often funny. But I think a lot of its surprise was because of how it stood out among other romantic comedies of the early 2000s. Watching it today, when almost all romantic comedies are quirky and low-budget, it doesn't feel as fresh. Still quite like it though.
Didn't age that well. The beginning felt like a movie, made by Greeks, on how awesome/important computers are.

I don't think I will ever be able to express how much I love this film
You know what day it is. Thursday! and in the tradition of “Throwback thursday” I post one of my all time faves. A movie that I am so bias towards, I am just going to vomit all of my love for this movie all over ya’ll.
This movie is the movie that my best friend Kayla and I will watch at least once a month. Once, we watched it three times in a row because we looked at each other and said “What should we watch now?” “I mean, we could just watch it again?” and we did that twice.
Meh. It was funny but I found it a bit dull. Maybe I was distracted or something? Might need to rewatch it.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
