I saw “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” yesterday. I liked it. Was it as magical as the first movie? No. Sequels rarely are. BUT, this was fun and it was funny. It was like an hour and a half of laughing with old friends.
They weren’t kidding – EVERYONE came back for this movie. All of the aunts, all of the uncles, all of the cousins, all of the in-laws. It was fun and interesting to see how those characters changed (or didn’t) over the years.
What I like about both this movie and the first is that they are, ultimately, about family and the craziness that ensues. Sure, some of it may seem over the top. But, then again, there are some things that I can relate to – even being an only child and not being Greek.
