My Big Fat Greek Wedding is centered on Fotoula “Toula” Portokalos (Nia Vardalos), a middle class Greek American woman. Toula doesn’t like her family is Greek in every single way. At thirty, she is the only woman in her family who has “failed”. Failed because her family expects her to marry a Greek, make Greek babies, and feed everyone until the day she dies. Instead, she falls in love with a non-Greek upper middle class Ian Miller (John Corbett). Toula struggles to get her family to accept Ian while she comes to terms with her heritage and cultural identity.
I don’t know the reason for so many negative reviews for this movie. Well, I found it entertaining. It is not an extremely good movie but it is not bad either. It has several very heartwarming and emotional scenes that made it not so funny for a comedy film.
