Did You Know?


Nia Vardalos' husband in real life, Ian Gomez was also in this film as Mike. See more »


In Orthodox Church, is forbidden for a female to go behind the "Templo". This rule is called "Avaton". In the scene of the wedding, Maria goes there (when she doubts if she should continue the ceremony) and the rest of the girls of family follow her to change her mind. The priest should have made a reprimand to them. Also because they follow the ethics of Greek culture, this should be known to the characters without doubt. See more »


Gus: We need to find a boyfriend for Paris.
Panos: How about Ariana Skoufis's boy, huh?
Gus: Everybody on that island has six toes.
Panos: Let's wait until summer. We check his feet.

Opa! Opa! Opa! Thanks Ms Vardalos and company!
25 March 2016 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Dear Chicago dwelling Toula (Nia Vardalos) has been happy since her first Big Fat Greek Wedding to Ian (John Corbett). They have one daughter, Paris, who is a senior in high school and is pulling away from Toula farther every day. Well, it is hard when the entire big family lives near each other so Grandpa Gus (Michael Constantine) and Grandma Maria (Lainie Kazan) and the rest are always snooping. Its called LOVE, as only the Greek Americans can feel. Aunts, uncles, and cousins are always around, at the restaurant where they all work. Just as Paris is applying to colleges and dreaming of space, Gus and Maria are shocked to find they are not really married! Yes, their marriage certificate was never signed by the Greek priest. This creates quite a rift, as Maria wants Gus to ask her again, nicely, and Gus thinks that's going too far. In the meantime, he is learning how to use the computer so he can prove that he, Gus, is a direct descendant of Alexander the Great. It takes a semi emergency to get a proposal from his lips but once it happens, the SECOND Big Fat Greek Wedding is getting planned. Toula and Ian are torn in three different directions. One, will their daughter choose to go to school far from Chicago? Two, how can they help with the wedding plans? And, three, after being so wrapped up in parenting, how can they recapture the sparkle of their own honeymoon days? Opa, a thousand times, Opa! Ms. Nia Vardalos, take a bow, for writing such a terrific film. Then, too, she and the rest of the superb cast is a splendid comic blessing. How wonderful to see the settings at home and at the restaurant while the costumes and lively direction make for one treasure of a flick. Hay, fans, drop the Windex NOW and drive to catch this one as soon as is humanly possible.
