5.0 out of 5 stars EVEN THE GODS OF OLYMPUS WOULD LAUGH, August 19, 2002
I have seen movies over the years that state: "The funniest movie in years" or "You'll laugh so hard..." But this little sleeper had me in laughing all the way through. Trust me when I tell you: "IT IS THE FUNNIEST MOVIE IN YEARS." Almost everyone can relate to a having a weird family; and you do not have to be Greek.
Nia Vardalos was devine as Toula; the 30 year old Greek frumpy girl who has no life and lives for her family's business. John Corbett was charming and handsome as Ian Miller, a well educated professor who lives a good life. The two meet in her parents' restaurant but not knowing who each other are. She is totally in love with him. She starts to change her whole outlook by going to school and changing her physical appearance.
Toula has a very strict family code. A Greek girl must marry a Greek man to make Greek babies. Unfortunately Ian is not Greek. Regardless, she manages to fall in love with him.
Lainie Kazan is grand as the "dame" of the house. As she put it: "The man is the head and the woman is the neck; and the woman can turn the head any way she wants to."
Just prior to the wedding, you will find yourself laughing. During Ian's "baptism" into the Greek religion, you will realize how much people are willing to do for love.
Joey Fatone's part was minimal but he was good. I thought he was Italian.
The movie can be viewed as "anyone's family". Everyone thinks their family is weird.
I would love to see this film again. I laughed so much and it was worth the money.
Go out and see this.
