A mob mix-up in Chicago sends two chanteuses screaming for L.A., where they score a perfect gig: posing as drag queens on the dinner theater/cabaret circuit. Things get extra-weird when a guy falls for one of the girls.
"Good Witch" will take viewers on a new magical journey with Cassie Nightingale and her daughter Grace. When Dr. Sam Radford moves in next door to Grey House with his son, they are charmed by the 'magical' mother-daughter duo.
Determined to be a full-time mom, a publicist quits her job, but as soon as her husband gets fired, she needs to get her career back, and helping a screen legend to get back in the business seems to be the way.
I saw the original film My Big Fat Greek wedding and thoroughly enjoyed it. I love the subject of culture shock and had a whale of a time. Then I learned from a friend in the USA that they had made a TV series based on the film. I read about it on imdb and the were a lot of very negative comments about this tv series. No matter, I
thought, I will pursue and buy the dvd which I promptly did. And in truth, I certainly don't regret my purchase.
Of course the novelty of the film has worn off by the time we get to look at the series but I found it very pleasant and amusing to watch. Of course I have some minor criticisms, why did they change her name from Toula to Nia, and why wasn't her husband ( the non-greek ) the same man as in the original film. But apart from that, I watched thru the seven episodes of the dvd with a great amount of pleasure and don't understand all these negative criticisms. The actors themselves are an adorable bunch of people and I just love their accents. That alone makes it fun to watch but the plots of each series aren't too bad at all ( of course they're not masterpieces ) but I feel I'll often be putting on this dvd when I need a programme to cheer myself up. So I am giving what I hope to be a very positive review of this series which I think, in addition, will age well in the coming years !
