Storyline

Soon to be 21 year old Helen Andritis is a consummate tennis player, being raised by her embarrassing traditional Greek grandmother. All Helen wants to do is win the tennis championships, but all her grandmother wants is for Helen to find a nice Greek boyfriend, like Jimmy Koutella, who is Helen's childhood crush. But Helen (who is still a virgin) can't even muster the nerve to talk coherently in his presence, despite his mother and her grandmother's match-making endeavors. Nor does she really think he's that interested. Not a day goes by when she doesn't wish she looked just like one of her classmates, Stephanie V, a beautiful Eurasian model who appears on the cover of every magazine, and who plays tennis like a pro. This tale takes us through the trials, traumas, and romances of 3 very different young women being raised by their immigrant families. It's fun, it's crazy, it's serious. It will make you cheer and cry - but not too much! In the tradition of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" ... Written by Laura Sivis

Awesome!!!!
13 July 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie at Yamba and killed myself laughing. It is too beautiful for words! I'm Greek and the portrayal of Greeks was hilariously true. Kind of like My Big Fat Greek Wedding only deeper.I loved all the characters esp Yia Yia who was excellently played by Jill Mckay - Also Vasilia - is another hilarious character. ' Story is a bout a Greek girl - Helen trying to find her place in the world but she has a very over powering grandmother who wants her to become a traditional Greek housewife ( something all us Greek girls in that age range can relate to a little too much) AndHelen wants to be just like Stephanie V this Eurasian chick who is a star tennis player and seems to have everything. Helen's grandmother - Yia Yia tries to set her up with the gorgeous Jimmy ( Clayton Watson) but he likes Stephanie which causes dramas with the Greek community

Oh it's too gorgeous! A Must watch!!
