This is just one example of how poorly this film was made. The continuity is totally missing starting with the scene where mom is lying on the couch looking at Gay Scholarship results on her phone. Her hair is red, has no brightly-colored streaks in it, and she's wearing a blue t-shirt with large colored hearts on it. Her nail polish is black. In the next few frames, a close-up of the phone screen with the search results, her nails are pink, and the background shows some sort of patterned fabric that isn't in the wide shot. The next scene has her hurrying to her son's room, where her hair is back to brown with brightly-colored streaks, she's wearing a plaid, button-up shirt, and her nails are either polish-free or she's wearing clear polish.

Minor continuity glitches are amusing. These are so glaring as to make the movie more difficult to watch. Knowing that the creators couldn't have cared less, why should I care about this film?

This has amateur written all over it!
29 April 2015 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

This movie has little plot and zombie-like "acting" which puts the deep freeze on anything you might want to get out of the film. Aside from Ms. Vardalos, there's a reason the rest of the cast is made up of unknowns and little known bit players. Ms. Vardalos is astonishingly horrible in this and quickly making herself even less relevant than she's already become by being in amateur movies like Helicopter Mom.

There are zero redeeming qualities about this movie and everything from the cinematography to the wardrobe makes it look like a bad student film.

The only thing that's funny about this film is that apparently the sales company, distributor, production company, producer and/or director are posting bogus positive user reviews to try and trick people into watching this thing. 99% of the people see right through it which makes the losers behind this movie even more pathetic than they already are for putting out a trashy movie like this. The very few critic's who even bothered reviewing this movie unanimously panned it.

Even if you can download this thing for free off the internet, your time is worth far more than subjecting yourself to 80 minutes of stupidity.
