Have you seen the film My Big Fat Greek Wedding? My husband and I didn’t see it until it came out on DVD (or was it VHS… I can’t remember). My mother in law saw it in the theater and LOVED it. She wasn’t one to buy movies for home viewing, but she purchased this one. We borrowed it from her one night to watch it and see what all the fuss was about. After we saw it we knew why she loved the film so much. To this day my husband still says “Put some Windex on it,” whenever someone gets a boo-boo. LOL!
I was very surprised to hear that after all these years they made a sequel. I’m even more surprised that the original cast is back to reprieve their roles.
The film stars Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan, Gia Carides, Joey Fatone, Elena Kampouris, Alex Wolff, Louis Mandylor, Bess Meisler, Bruce Gray, Fiona Reid, Ian Gomez, Jayne Eastwood, Mark Margolis, Andrea Martin and Michael Constantine.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time. Written by Academy Award® nominee Nia Vardalos, who stars alongside the entire returning cast of favorites, the film reveals a Portokalos family secret that will bring the beloved characters back together for an even bigger and Greeker wedding.
Check out the film’s trailer.
My best friends growing up all live near one another upstate where I’m frome. They are planning to see this film for “Girl’s Night Out.” I wish I could join them. It would be a fun night. Sadly, I live too far away.
Don’t forget! My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is in theaters March 25, 2016.
