My Big Fat Review

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. … Continue reading
