I personally liked the film, but I think it needs some intimate knowledge of northern Greek culture (e.g. to understand football-related jokes), and of the current "economic and cultural" exchange with Greece's northern neighbour Bulgaria (e.g. the 100s of "night-clubs" with Bulgarian dancers that have appeared in Greece during the past 5 years) to appreciate its fine points. Although it has been a mega-hit in Greece last year I doubt if it can become a success elsewhere. Anyway, my impression is that it accurately describes a lot of elements of contemporary Balkan mentality (if there is such a thing) and is amusing to watch.
