MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 3 – A Review by John Strange
I have to admit that while I loved the original film, I never saw the sequel. It doesn’t matter. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 does a great job of re-introducing us to all of the returning characters and presenting some wildly eccentric new ones as well.
Following the death of the family patriarch, Gus Portokalos (Michael Constantine), Toula Portokalos Miller (Nia Vardalos) is tasked with her father’s last wish, to bring his journal back to Greece and give it to his three best childhood friends.
As with all films like this, the journey is fraught with difficulties and humor. The task looks to be impossible, but the family pulls together and accomplishes it with a sense of wonder, humor, and family love.
This is the type of film that I have always looked forward to seeing during the summer, filled with love and humor. The characters, both old and new, are lovely, though one seemed a bit scary at first. Find some time to get out of the summer heat to eat some popcorn and enjoy My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3!
For myself, I need to go back and watch My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2!
