A Total Disappointment
7 September 2009 | by meha-psSee all my reviews

For someone who wrote and starred in the superb hit film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" I guess when It comes to directing and starring in a film Nia Vardalos may not find herself as successful.

The movie was frankly "So bad" that I was surprised Nia could actually be capable of messing up a film so badly even though it was her directorial debut...It was over done, over acted, the story line seemed silly and clichéd It almost looked like everyone was trying too hard to make it seem real and natural to such an extent that it ended up being totally fake.

I found Nia's acting over done, and incredibly unsuited to her personality and John Corbett just seemed like he was dragged into this whole mess of a film.

The storyline needed some more realism, the humor some fixing, the actors too failed to make an impact. This is a chick flick that can definitely be avoided.
