I really liked this movie because it was all about a big, crazy family, so it was filled with comedy and an abundance of love. I could relate to the main character because I too am in the middle of a giant, boisterous family and because she wanted bigger things for herself. Not only was the movie funny, but it shone a light on Greek culture and how important family life really is. I wouldn’t change anything about the movie, because even it’s imperfections work with the overall theme. This movie is a feel good movie all the way through and I’m excited to watch the sequel. 4/5 Stars

This movie hasn't aged as well as I expected it would, but it's still very good. It's a nice, light comedy. For me, all of the "But he's not Greek!" started to wear a little thin this time around. I'm glad I rewatched it prior to seeing My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, its creatively titled sequel. While I don't think 2's story is one that needed to be told, Nia Vardalos did a wonderful job of writing the characters' lives 14 years later. With the sequel, I appreciated the closeness of the family and how they had become much more tolerant, and I was impressed that everyone, even very minor characters, had returned for it. I recommend having some Greek food on hand if you are planning to watch either or both of these movies. You will be hungry for it. My Big Fat Greek Wedding is rated PG for sensuality and language.

Delightful romantic comedy about a dilemma that has faced many immigrants--interethnic marriage. Somewhat over the top in some spots, but very entertaining.

Toula Portokalos: Ma, Dad is so stubborn. What he says goes. "Ah, the man is the head of the house!"

Maria Portokalos: Let me tell you something, Toula. The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants.
