Nia Vardalos must have used some powerful dark magic to turn this cute but unexceptional movie into the box office juggernaut it became.

They wanted to make My Big Fat Jew Wedding, but some big shot exec was like, "You can't put Jew in a movie title." They decided to go with Greek because what the shit are they gonna do about it, they are still resting on the laurels of a civilization that's been dead for thousands of years.

Take all of the most awkward moments in family get-togethers, cram them into a movie, and you're stuck with this...only you volunteered to watch this. sucker.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a hoot. At times, that is. It may feel limited and out of place most of the movie, but it recooperates and actually pulls off nice laughing routines. Still pretty dull in the eyes of me and several significant others.

Though it sometimes feels like a television sitcom, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is good-hearted, lovable, and delightfully eccentric, with a sharp script and lead performance from Nia Vardalos.

Brimming with charm and likeable characters, this is the very meaning of the phrase 'feel-good comedy'. Some of the jokes are a little obvious, and maybe the point that the main character has a big family is a little laboured, but I can forgive the movie that. This proves, even if her other films don't, that Nia Vardalos is a talented lady.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding thinks it's a lot funnier than it actually is. Though it has that charm that only a movie about an ugly girl can, it never really is all that good.

While the whole aspect of contrasting the differences between two cultures is effectively a limited idea, the film pulls it off quite well and is for the most part good easy viewing entertainment. There's the odd joke thrown in here and there providing the occasional bit of humour. To be honest I'm probably rating this a little higher than it deserves. However although I know it's very Hollywood and typically cheesy, I couldn't help get some enjoyment from it. Predictable, but decent enough.

Really cute and sweet. An adorable mix of all sorts of love, as our leading lady tries to balance the "love of her life" her "love of education and work" and her "love for her parents and (very large) extended family." Well written, well acting, and quite funny!

This movie is utterly benign. The dramatic intensity level never rises above about a 1.5 out of 10, conflict and stakes are minimal as can be, everything works out for everyone. Mostly functions as a fluffy cute sort of travelogue into the world of Greek American culture. Can’t say it’s one I’d watch again and again but lord almighty if this didn’t make Star Wars/Harry Potter/LotR money at the box office back in the day!

I saw it. Its decent. Its not going to be something that I am going to stop everything and watch ever again. If I can find something else to do such as paint the house, mow the lawn or build a car I would. That's no offense to the movie though.

Harmless and inoffensive, which is harder to pull off than you would think. Sometimes it's genuinely funny and the lack of production budget doesn't hinder the story too terribly. Worthwhile.

Not a big fan of chick flicks. As a man I usually like my love stories surrounded by violence or with unhappy endings -- but this movie pried my heart from my cold dead hands. Charming, endearing, truly funny, and pure. This is a simple movie with grand purpose. Somehow I could relate to these Greek characters. A heartfelt expression of romance and family and all of what is good in life. This movie is a modern fairytale that puts most fluffed up chick flick to shame. Great!

Good acting. I think it gives a good account of the typical Greek lifestyle, or perceptions of it. It's funny and provokes discussion on gender, class and sexual identity. It's not too heavy.

Chic Flick Yes. But a watchable chick flick that ranks in my top tier is a rare item indeed. One wishes there were more movies with this amount of heart. One can tell how powerful a movie this is by the number of people that only give this a 1 out of 100 rating. Maybe it stepped on some cultural toes, maybe like the movie some just didn't like seeing a mixed marriage of cultures?

As a movie that really has nothing major to offer, I'm shocked at the $241 million domestic gross. Did women have no other option for an entire year? At the same time, it's a cute little romantic comedy, but $241 million??

One could argue that this is nothing more than an ethnic sitcom. However, there are two crucial differences: (1) unlike a sitcom, this is actually funny, and (2) writer/star Nia Vardalos has all kinds of charm and screen presence
