Synopsis
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 does have a distinct sitcom-like feel to it. You can almost imagine this concept being stretched into several seasons, mined with gags galore.

Story: The Greeks are back, many years after the first installment of this movie, which was a surprise hit, engaging viewers with its sweetness and innocence. Here, Toula's (Vardalos) father Gus (Constantine) discovers that he and his wife Maria (Kazan) have some marriage paperwork issues, and so he decides that they should set matrimony matters right and get married again, 50 years after they supposedly got together.

Review: Watching this film is like time travelling back into the past - 14 years to be precise. For one, you might wonder why there was such a long gap in between films and secondly, you might find yourself wondering just what the reason was for this film to be made at all.

There is plenty of family drama but Toula comes across as being quite overbearing in her smothering ways, which to her is aimed at sorting out whatever is wrong. Things aren't quite okay for the family on the financial side too. Their businesses are not doing well at all. But obviously all of that is forgotten when Gus makes the shocking discovery about his marriage. Oh and incidentally, he apparently thinks he is a direct descendant of Alexander the Great.

In short, this film depicts the most dysfunctional of dysfunctional families. You therefore can't help but empathise with Toula's daughter Paris (Kampouris) who is desperate to flee the nest and secure a college admission in some place no matter how far away. What is interesting about the film though is the radical difference in the ages of the cast members and of course the female characters, who do seem to have substantial roles and not just as embellishment. All said and done though, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 does have a distinct sitcom-like feel to it. You can almost imagine this concept being stretched into several seasons, mined with gags galore. Jones and Vardalos have moved away from a distinctly Greek aesthetic and have focused on funny family drama. As an ensemble comedy, it somewhat works. But the jokes could have been more in number. Pass the spanakopita, please.

Quite a dumb movie and trying to exploit the first movie with a sequel. Hopefully further sequels will not come. Can watch it like a "chalta hai" movie.
