At the movies: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
Toula’s life is in turmoil – her daughter, Paris, is fed up with the meddlesome ways of their big Greek family and wants to go as far away as she can for college and her parents, Gus and Maria, discover that they’re not really married. The family rallies to plan the perfect wedding for Gus and Maria – will it be enough to show Paris that all the meddling they do is out of love?
I’ve never seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding but went to see its long awaited sequel, the aptly named My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, with a friend who did. I did have to ask her about a few things that happened but, overall, was able to follow the movie just fine. We both thought the movie was okay – a bit over the top and silly at times, for sure. The movie is clean so several generations could see it together but I wouldn’t recommend rushing to the theater to see it. If you saw the first movie, you may want to catch this one but I’d wait for it to come to streaming services.
