Great comedy, but bit of a stereotype!
on 2 December 2014
This is one of my favourite films. It's witty, the characters are lovable, the storyline sweet. But on watching it again, I realised that it relies on stereotyping, turning characters into caricatures. My daughter loved it. She doesn't get distracted by details like I do! Maybe the Greek Americans of Chicago are like the film depicts them. Nia Vardalos has done well overall. And if you like this film, don't miss out the next one where she becomes a tour guide in Greece! It circulates under two titles but is the same film.
