Storyline

When Jan decides to marry his girl-friend Sara, he is not aware of his opponent: her father, who is an Italian patriarch. Antonio won't hear of a wedding anywhere else than in Campobello, his hometown in southern Italy. Jan is faced with an overwhelmingly large Italian family, forced to discover new traits in his bride once she's embraced her Italian side, and looking forward to a lifetime of being the fifth wheel. But by and by, he also realizes that Antonio, who left his family for Germany when he was young and married a German woman later, knows all these feelings first-hand and doesn't like him the less for them. Still, there is the question: Should Jan and Sara really get married? Written by emkarpf

My big fat Italian wedding
21 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

It seems inevitable, that after the success of the small budget movie "My big fat Greek wedding" there would be other people who'd try to rip off on that success. And while that is not a bad thing, you'd wish the movies would try to set higher standards and not only cash-in on a trend.

This movie is filled with clichés and as I was told never reaches the books diverseness. Not that comes as a surprise (books have the freedom of being free to explore everything, plus the reader can imagine different things, while reading it), but it's still a shame. And while this isn't completely ridiculous, it still is far away from showing is something real (the connection between the people and many other things), but still too dramatic and wrongly paced to be as funny as it could.

Not that Nia Vardalos movie was better (if you watch her output after that, it only got worse though), but it was more successful ...
