Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Based on the characters from the popular independent film, My Big Fat Greek Wedding! Nia and Tom return from their honeymoon and discover that when the honeymoon is over, the real fun begins. Seven episodes! Stars almost the entire cast from the movie – Nia Vardalos, Lainie Kazan, Louis Mandylor, Andrea Martin and more. Executive produced by Rita Wilson.

Amazon.com

In the wake of the phenomenal success of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, it seemed an obvious choice to build a sitcom around writer-star Nia Vardalos's family life. But the sitcom was cancelled after half a seaon--which is too bad, because though My Big Fat Greek Life doesn't capture the same relaxed, storytelling rhythm of the movie, almost the entire acting ensemble returns (Andrea Martin, Michael Constantine, Lainie Kazan, Gia Carides, and Louis Mandylor; only John Corbett, due to other obligations, was ably replaced by Steve Eckholdt as Nia's non-Greek husband), and their skilled interplay makes My Big Fat Greek Life an entirely satisfying show. Most of the episodes stay strongly entrenched with family issues, playing with the contrasting tugs of family obligation and the desire for independence, all anchored by Vardalos's smart, engaging presence. --Bret Fetzer

After the success of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", the success of "My Big Fat Greek Life" seemed almost assured.
Carl Malmstrom
The characters didn't have to try to be funny, because they were just funny anyway.

Following the enormous success of the 2002 film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", Brad Grey, Tom Hanks and Nia Vardalos (who wrote and starred in the film), along with 8 other people, produced a TV series sitcom with a similar cast and plot entitled "My Big Fat Greek Life". The series aired on CBS in the spring of 2003, but poor viewer ratings brought about its quick demise after only 7 episodes. Characters that appeared in the TV series that had also appeared in the original film and remained unchanged were Maria Portokalos (Lainie Kazan), Gus Portokalos (Michael Constantine), Nick Portokalos (Louis Mandylor), cousin Nikki (Gia Carides) and Aunt Voula (Andrea Martin). Nia Vardalos, who played Fortula 'Tula' Portokalos in the film, changed her character's name to Nia Portokalos Miller for the TV series. John Corbett, who played Tula's husband Ian Miller in the original film, was unable to appear in the TV series due to a previous commitment to another TV series. (That TV series, "Lucky", was cancelled by Fox after 13 episodes.) So, in place of John Corbett, Nia's husband in the TV series was Thomas Miller as played by Steven Eckholdt.
Whereas the 2002 film had been expertly written and successfully drew the audience into its tale of self-discovery and love for its main character, 'Tula' Portokalos, the TV series instead focused primarily on jokes and less engaging, often predictable plot lines. My rating for each of the seven episodes, as well as each episode's air date, are as follows:
1. "The House Gift" (3, 2/24/2003). After returning from their honeymoon, Nia and Thomas are surprised to learn that Gus and Maria have purchased them a new house.
2. "The Empire Strikes Back" (3.5, 3/3/2003).

It's amazing to see the negative revues of this show from people who seem negative. If you watch the show to be entertained, which was the purpose of this show, you will not be disappointed! It is funny, light-hearted, and is not meant to be a competition to the movie, but rather a chance for us to continue with the characters we loved from the film. My only disappointment was having only 7 episodes. For those who criticize the show for being cancelled so quickly, this is not the only good show to meet an untimely demise. (look at Firefly, another excellent entertaining show which was cancelled after 11 or 12 episodes).

The first episode, "The House Gift" is a great reintroduction to the characters. Yes, Toula is now Nia, and Ian is now Thomas. I was able to get over that fact with little pain, so I don't see the big deal for some who cannot seem to live with the new names, or the fact that Thomas is played by a different actor. It's a TV show, not real life, and these are actors. Things change. Get over it and enjoy the show.

#2 - The Empire Strikes Back - Nick is hilarious in this episode, and Voula is great. (In fact, she is the best and most funny character in this series.) Gus and Maria are preparing a will to see who will inherit the "empire" (restaurant and house). Nia inherits the restaurant, and she is none to happy about the aspect of being just like her father. Watch this one just to see the scene with Voula, Nia and Nick as the women try to approach the subject of who will get the restaurant to Nick.

#3 - The Free Lunch - man does this one seem to get the criticism! This one is funny too, not a classic, but it is funny, which is what this show is about.

I thought this series was great! It tool a few episodes not to long for John Corbett's pretty face, but once you get over it, you realize how great this show is! Not sure why it was pulled becasue there are so many sitcoms that are so horrible that have been on for awhile. Nia and the rest of the cast are great. That's why I am buying this DVD! Nia, PLEASE make a sequel to MBFGW! I swear, it's my life too-even the crazy yaya! Enjoy!

Why this short-lived sitcom is on DVD is beyond me. Don't get me wrong: the first episode is pretty good, with the stars doing a great job. But the reamaining six episodes only get worse and worse; with star Nina Vardalos the only reason that make them worth watching; while the other stars talents are wasted on the barely mediocre writing.
The storylines of episodes 2-7 sound very promising, yet all seems to be lost in the scripts. The jokes are far-fetched; not funny; and everything that makes the movie stand out from all low-brow basic sitcom humor (ie everything that makes it "smart") is absent from the television series.
Don't waste your money on this DVD. Instead, purchase good sitcoms such as The King of Queens, Spin City, Will & Grace, Cheers, Frasier, Married ... With Children, etc.
My Big Fat Greek Life: great talents wasted on a terrible show.

Lets start with I LOVED MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING! The movie transended the idea of Greekness and was so common to everyone. I thought the family looked so familier, than I realized it was MINE!

When CBS said they were going to do a weekly TV series based on WEDDING, I was thrilled and delighted!

That was the GOOD news, now the BAD news..This short lived seven episode series died a quick network death (THANK GOD). The series had so much potenial as a series. It could have been another M*A*S*H (A TV show that also started as a film) if the writing was good and kept slightly to the movie story line...IT DIDN'T and the show failed quickly!

I would have liked Nia to talk less and use more facial expressions as she did in the film. She kept running her mouth, a motor mouth..as she was very shy in the film.

This sitcom could have had more bite as a family comedy, it copied everyone else's sitcom styles and not its uniqueness which it had. Most of the supporting characters were very under used, acting as if they were part of the furniture.

On DVD, they could have given the DVD patrons a treat such as an audio commentary, promos, features, etc..alas no extras on can be found on this dvd disk..at least they couldn't give us something.

Ah, if wishes for a good show was something that could happen
