Goofs

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?

Hands down one of the worst attempts at comedy!!!!
23 April 2015 | by Sue WestmoreSee all my reviews

My first question is, who was the genius producer who read this material and thought it would be a good idea to make this a film? That person is either extremely ignorant, illiterate, or both. My second question is, has Nia Vardalos' career taken such a dive that she is now forced to take acting jobs in D-level movies like this crap? I turned this thing off after forty minutes (which was forty minutes too long) because it was completely and utterly unwatchable. It's not funny, the dialogue is unbearable, the acting is worst than community theatre level, and the entire film looks like the budget was $20,000. Everything about this film reeks of amateurism. It's a complete joke! Who in their right mind sets out to make nonsense like this??

I won't carry on further about this turd of a film other than to say don't waster your precious time or money!
