OK, am a Nia Vardalos and John Corbett fan. Yes, I said it. I really enjoyed My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Nia Vardalos's other new film Driving Aphrodite (or My Life In Ruins - dependent on which side of the pond you reside).
This film left me feeling a little bit . . . well . . . is that it? The basic storyline is good and enjoyable in an easy-going sort of way. However, I just felt like there could have been more to it than that. I felt a little disappointed.
Nia Vardalos plays a florist shop owner who, in order to avoid being dumped and being hurt, has a rule that going out with a guy should only last for 5 dates. After the 5th date, it's over. She meets a gorgeous restaurant owner (John Corbett) who tries to follow her philosophy on dating, but things get a little complicated when they start falling for each other - that's the bare bones.
All-in-all a good film, funny in parts and lots of potential that it doesn't quite live up to.
Or maybe I just need to watch it again??
