Weekend Movie: My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

Love is here to stay... so is her family.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) is a heartwarming romantic comedy movie.

Synopsis: Toula Portokalos (Nia Vardalos) is 30 years old, single, Greek, lives with her parents, and works in the family restaurant, Dancing Zorba's. Her father, Gus (Michael Constantine) wants her to marry a Greek man and make Greek babies. But she's looking for more in life.

One day, she falls in love with a non-Greek man, school teacher Ian Miller (John Corbett). Gus couldn't accept the fact that Toula is dating a non-Greek. So, Toula and Ian have to work together to get Toula's family to accept him. Ian has to learn to accept Toula's huge family and Toula has to comes to terms with her heritage and cultural identity.

I love some of the interesting and catchy quotes from the movie:

1. Toula: Nice Greek girls who don't find a husband, work in the family restaurant. So here I am, day after day, year after year, thirty and way past my expiration date.

This reminds me of who I was when I was 30 years old, although I'm not a Greek and I don't work in a restaurant. ;)

2. Maria (Toula's mother): The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants.

3. Nick (Toula's brother): Don't let your past dictate who you are, but let it be part of who you will become.

The entire cast is delightful to watch. Nia Vardalos as Toula is stunning and she captures the essence of love, family, and culture in a nutshell naturally and genuinely. Toula's parents, Gus and Maria's characters are totally credible and their Greek-y idiosyncrasies are so fun to watch!

It's a romantic comedy with a sweet ending. Oh yeah, I love the wedding scene too. :)
