The Portokalos family is back, and they’re just as outrageous as ever! Elena Kampouris joins the cast as Paris, the teenage daughter of Toula, Nia Vardalos, and Ian, John Corbett, who is causing waves as she prepares to graduate high school and head off to college. While Toula struggles to deal with her daughter leaving her, a long buried family secret comes to light. Portokalos patriarch, Gus, Michael Constantine, and his wife Maria, Lainie Kazan, aren’t legally married! What what else is there to do, but have another big, fat, Greek wedding?
Bringing back much of the humor from the first movie, along with a couple of new characters and plenty of wise-cracks, this Greek family will have you in stitches all over again. The story is just as quick paced as their lives are and doesn’t leave you time to be bored.
With four generations of the family sharing the screen, we really get to see life come in a full circle. With all the kids around and imitating the quirks of their parents, the teenagers starting to find their own personalities, it leaves time for the parents to reflect. They find themselves questioning – where has the romance gone?
Gus and Maria, and Aunt Voula, show us something that is often forgotten. Love doesn’t grow old. Even Mana-Yaiyai has a few surprises up her sleeve.
A fantastically funny movie that reminds us that love is for everyone, from the young, to the young at heart.
