Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - Weak sequel divorced from any subtlety

By Damon Smith

It seems like a lifetime since Greek-American singleton Toula Portokalos (Nia Vardalos) shocked her nearest and dearest by falling in love with non-Greek upper middle class beau, Ian Miller (John Corbett).

Toula's father Gus (Michael Constantine) is convinced he is a direct descendant of Alexander The Great and begins to research the family tree. In the process, he uncovers a long buried family secret: his marriage certificate to Maria (Lainie Kazan) wasn't signed by the priest so in the eyes of the law, they aren't husband and wife. The rest of the family pledge support in organising a wedding at short notice so Gus and Maria can tie the knot properly.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is acrimoniously divorced from subtlety and invention.

Two stars
