But the now 17-year-old is eager to set out on her own.

Stream this in the summer: 'United States of Tara'

21 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In my early days on the beat, NBC had an ad campaign encouraging people to watch summer reruns, promising, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" In the age of Peak TV, that slogan seems less cynical than accurate. The rise of streaming services has put the bulk of TV history only a click or two away, which means that people are constantly discovering The Wire, or Arrested Development, or Terriers (sigh) for the very first time. In lieu of a summer rewind this year, I wanted to offer up primers of shows you can stream, whether an older series available in full(*) or something current you can catch up on before its next season begins. So far, I've done a pair of current shows in  Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Halt and Catch Fire, and wanted to shift gears this week to do a completed series. (*) Note: with these picks, »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Movie Review

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Universal Pictures Reviewed by: Harvey Karten for Shockya, d-based on Rotten Tomatoes Grade: C- Director:  Kirk Jones Written by: Nia Vardalos Cast: Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Michael Constantine, Lainie Kazan, Andrea Martin Screened at: AMC Empire, NYC, 3/21/16 Opens: March 25, 2016 This movie is so sit-comish like that I wondered why the background music is Greek rather than the usual elevator scores that we hear on equally banal comedies like “Two Broke Girls.”  A major segment, particularly in the first hour, is so embarrassing that I felt like crawling under my seat, with “humor” so ethnic that I felt like watching thirty hours  [ Read More ]

Box Office: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Shatters Records With $170.1 Million Debut

27 March 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” steamrolled past records, debuting to a gargantuan $170.1 million over Easter weekend despite being pilloried by critics. That ranks as the top opening weekend for a DC Comics film, the best March launch ever and the sixth-biggest domestic opening weekend of all-time.

It’s a shot in the arm for Warner Bros., which has been reeling from a series of costly bombs such as “Jupiter Ascending” and “Pan,” and is looking to the Dark Knight and Man of Steel throw down to kick off a series of inter-connected comic-book franchises. Warner Bros. has already announced release dates for sequels and spinoffs for the next five years, with the first of these superhero adventures, “Suicide Squad,” coming out in August.

“This sets us up well,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. distribution executive vice president. “We’re very proud of what we’ve made before in the »

My Big Fat Wedding 2 Review

26 March 2016 7:49 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

In the current Hollywood where any movie is ripe for a sequel, fourteen is just a number, which is why 2002 sleeper hit, and the highest grossing romantic comedy of all time, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, has produced a follow-up, with writer and star Nia Vardolas returning as Toula, once again trying to deal with her ‘crazy’ greek family. This time round, things get a bit ridiculous with the wedding actually being between Toula’s parents, due to a mistake being made with their marriage certificate fifty years prior. On top of that, Toula is dealing with marital issues with her husband Ian (John Corbett), that are aggravated by their teenage daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) wanting nothing to do with them or her extended family. If that brief synopsis sounds like a bad sitcom, you’re right, and that’s the biggest problem with this movie. The plot is less »

Interviews: Flashback to Nia Vardalos, Lainie Kazan of ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2’

25 March 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The second biggest release of the 2016 Easter Weekend is “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.” The sequel to the 2002 mega-hit, the film rolls out the same weekend as a certain “Bats v Supes,” but is a bit quieter – and more Greek – than its weekend neighbors. In anticipation of the new “Wedding,” HollywoodChicago.com reruns a couple interviews from featured stars Nia Vardalos and Lainie Kazan.

Nia Vardalos, Actress & Screenwriter, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

The Nia Vardalos story began with the first “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” (2002). She was doing a one woman show version of the story, when Rita Wilson – wife of Tom Hanks, and a Greek actress herself – came backstage and told Vardalos that it would make a great film. With that, Vardalos gave Wilson the already completed screenplay, and the rest is film history. Since then, Nia Vardalos has written and starred in several films, »

Why My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 Isn't A Guarantee

25 March 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It has taken 14 years for My Big Fat Greek Wedding to follow its hugely successful original. In addition to the returning cavalcade of characters, 18-year-old Elena Kampouris portrays the daughter of Nia Vardalos’ Toula and John Corbett’s Ian. Since Kampouris’ Paris spends most of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 worrying about prom and which college she should go to, a lot of people will assume that a third movie will focus on her how her furture unfolds and her potential marriage. However, the young actress insists that isn't a sure bet right now. I recently had the chance to attend the press junket for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, where Elena Kampouris explained why a third instalment to the franchise is far from guaranteed. She said: A lot of people have asked, ‘Are you going to do a third movie? Are you going to »

John Corbett Says Nia Vardalos Throws the Best Easter Egg Hunts: 'Nothing Is Off-Limits'

25 March 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's been 14 years since Nia Vardalos and John Corbett filmed the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding movie in 2002 - but the onscreen couple made sure the passing years didn't make them distant. "We live three hours apart," Corbett told People at the Cinema Society's Hestia-sponsored screening of I Saw the Light Thursday. "But at least five days a year we get together and hang out and have dinner." And it turns out, being friends with Vardalos definitely has its perks - like lots of big fat parties! "She's really big with Halloween and Easter," said Corbett, 54, adding that her »

Meet My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2's New Star! Elena Kampouris Dishes on Feeling 'at Home' Joining the Portokalos Family

25 March 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Elena Kampouris landed a role in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, her family couldn't have been happier. "Literally, I could've won like the Nobel Peace Prize and it would've meant nothing," the New York-born actress of a Greek father and French-American mother tells People. "Nothing I'm going to do in my life now is going to top this, unless I carry the Greek torch in the Olympics." In the sequel to the 2002 comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Kampouris, 18, plays Paris, the rebellious daughter of Toula Portokalos-Miller (Nia Vardalos) and Ian Miller (John Corbett).

Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

25 March 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, directed by Kirk Jones and starring Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan, Gia Carides, Joey Fatone, Elena Kampouris, Alex Wolff and Louis Mandylor. It’s hard to believe a whopping fourteen years have passed since we last saw the overwhelmingly loud and funny Greek-American family on our screens. The characters of 2002 have since got older, but the humour they deliver hasn’t weakened. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 focuses on Toula (Nia Vardalos) mothering a rebellious teenage daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) and nursing her marriage with Ian (John Corbett), which has since been lacking its original spark. The not-so-dominant father figure is still endearingly irritating – insistent on the greatness of Greece, as well as the greatness of Windex. What faces the family now is a new dilemma surrounding Toula’s parents and their marriage (or lack »

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 – Review

24 March 2016 10:52 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Okay film fans, are you all set for the big sequel storming the multiplex this weekend. No, not that one, the one with the caped combatants. Instead of spandex think….Windex. This is the follow-up that most movie-goers of a…ahem…certain age have been clamoring for since the original shocked and stunned Hollywood fourteen (gasp!) years ago. That’s because this lil’ flick with no big marquee stars, which cost a paltry five million, went on to gross just under a quarter of a billion bucks. So what took em’ so long, you may ask. Well, there was a TV show in 2003 that CBS canned after just seven episodes. Tis’ a distant memory, one that will be erased when the whole gang is back for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. So pass the ouzo! Opa!

Once again, good ole’ Gus Portokalos (Michael Constantine) is driving off to open »

People Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - Oh, Go On, Have Another Helping of Sweet, Fluffy Baklava

24 March 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On the subject of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, let's start with this: Nia Vardalos' follow-up to her word-of-mouth hit from long, long ago - 2002! - is a lot more enjoyable than the recent Zoolander 2 (15 years after the original) or Netflix's Fuller House (slightly more than two decades). Sequels and reboots are often like old friends who turn up hinting that they've been cosmetically "freshened" and looking instead as if they've had a complete body lift, internal organs included. Wedding 2 has no pretentions that way. The hair, the makeup, the jokes have barely changed. It's like the first film, »
