    My Big Fat Greek Wedding

    ★★★★

    Wonderfully quotable, deliciously off-kilter, and beautifully romantic, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is one of the best fairly formulaic romcoms possibly ever released. The sacrifices Ian is willing to make for love really are great examples of exactly what you do as a spouse, and it's one of the things that ends up binding you to each other.

It is one thing to pause for gravity and emphasis, it's another to be sitting at a crossroads, not moving and just staring at what is basically a slightly moving picture in a film. The sepia contrast images were just beautiful, and really the whole film is beautiful from an art…
