MOVIE: My Big Fat Greek Wedding

GUEST: Nathan Arizona

NUTSHELL: Ethnic girl shocks family by falling in love with a WASP with bad hair.

GOOD THINGS: Parthenon jokes, ouzo jokes, SCTV’s Andrea Martin… if only they could have found a role for Joe Flaherty, but this was a movie about a Greek family, not an Irish one.

BAD THINGS: Stuffy WASPs. We’re not all THAT bad, honest! (Oh you are SO! – Ed.)

FEATURES: Greek pride in being the inventors of civilization. A bunch of people I mostly have never heard of… reviewers who end sentences with prepositions.

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: Female facial hair jokes. LOOK, I’M JUST UNCOMFORTABLE WITH IT, OKAY?

NOTABLE: Other themes that work: My Big Fat Italian Wedding, My Big Fat Irish Wedding, My Big Fat Caribbean Wedding, My Big Fat Cajun Wedding. Curiously enough, My Big Fat Canadian Wedding just doesn’t sound as interesting.

BEST PART: Lead character’s family gets in-laws-to-be drunk on ouzo. Been there, and it ain’t pretty.

BEST LINE: “Nice boobs” (subtitled)

CROWNS: 5 out of 5
