A story full of surprises, hilarious and tender moments



The Portokalos family comes back this year with all their eccentricities, hilarious innocent personalities and bold traditions.

After a huge success with the first movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 stars all the original characters; the sweet uncool Toula (Nia Vardalos) and her cool handsome husband Ian (John Corbett), how could we forget about Toula's dad, Gus (Michael Constantine) with his witty Greek words and his wise bold wife Maria (Lainie Kazan), of course the presence of Aunt Voula (Andrea Martin) and the random funny Mana Yiayia (Bess Meisler) - whomever made you laugh and cry in the first movie is part of the second one.



The Portokalos family has grown since, with children and partners added to this hilarious equation. The increase in family members only means one thing, they have become even closer and louder than before!

Toula and Ian have a teenage daughter; Paris (Elena Kampouris). Raising a teenager seems like an easy task to them until each and every member in the family starts raising their opinions regarding her future, particularly around marriage and studies. As a close family, they are always available to each other, no matter what. However, Toula and Ian will have to learn to say no every once in a while if they want to focus on their daughter, their marriage and most importantly their passion for each other.

The story is full of surprises along the way, it is guaranteed to have you laughing unexpectedly, shedding a tear or two,reflecting on your own life and feeling the warm genuine love of such a big family. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is a party, a lesson about life and an abdominal work out for sure! Perfect to watch with the family, a date or your life-long sweetheart.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is rated PG.
