Storyline Heading
Still working in her parents' Greek restaurant, Toula Portokalos's daughter Paris is growing up. She is getting ready to graduate high school and Toula and Ian are experiencing marital issues. When Toula's parents find out they were never officially married, another wedding is in the works.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Like the original 2002 sleeper hit, this is a romantic comedy with a large ensemble and a healthy dose of Greek-centered humor, but one need not be Greek to appreciate and enjoy. All of the cast members from the first film return, including star/screenwriter Nia Vardalos, who still is the lead here but this time is more part of the ensemble. While language is minimal and there is no violence, there is some suggestive verbal humor that may be of caution to parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor Toula is a wife and a mother but more often behaves like a scared little girl as she spinelessly agrees to every whim and demand from her selfish, needy family. Her script is a mess, and no amount of Windex can clean it up.

NY Post Full Review
Average But these bright spots are mostly drowned out by the big, fat sequel machine, in which everything must be twice as clownish the second time around. Even the ever-resourceful Toula is no match for that.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Poor This sequel to the popular 2002 rom-com is a big, fat waste of time. What once bubbled up from a sincere love of Greek family has now congealed into the all-too-familiar Hollywood tale of milking a cash cow until cries for mercy.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average As far as shameless excuses to rehash crowd-pleasing gags from the first film go, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 doesn't particularly go about its duties cynically.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 68 moviegoers:
These aren't great reviews but they are certainly much higher than the professional critic reviews.
TEENS: The lone male loved it. Four of the eight ladies also loved it with another one indicating she enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, the remaining three weren't real impressed. They felt it was just an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One female loved it and one rated it just "average."
ADULTS: The male reviews are mediocre. Only about 30% really enjoyed "Wedding 2." Another 40% rated it "average," which for this type of movie isn't bad coming from adult males. Nearly 20% rated it "below average" to "poor." The ladies enjoyed it quite a bit more. Nearly half indicated that they loved it with another quarter rating it "above average." The remaining quarter felt it was an "average" movie.
