There are very few films that I am willing to watch over and over just for the sake of the film itself. I would call these my ‘guilty pleasure’ films, because I have seen them way too many times and still haven’t grown bored of them. My Big Fat Greek Wedding is one of these films. There was a time in my life when it felt like I could swear that I knew every single line of this movie from start to finish.
When I first heard about this movie, I was reluctant to watch it. Based off of what I had heard, it sounded like just another silly chick-flick about an “ugly duckling” who finds her “prince charming” and gets married. But one winter night, my two little nieces kept spouting out lines and cracking up, so I had to see what all the hype was about. Although the plot is simplistic, the characters are so lovable that they bring it to life.
Simply put, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a “feel-good” movie. It’s like your favorite comfort food. I can’t imagine anyone watching it without breaking into at least a smile. It’s heartwarming and funny and filled with so many unforgettably quirky personalities. If you ever feel like a “pick me up” this film is definitely one to check out.
