My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Tags: movie comedy Chicago

It is a 2002 American-Canadian romantic film. Toula Portokalos' family from the suburbs of Chicago promotes exactly three traditional values: “Marry a Greek boy, have Greek babies, and feed everyone.” From an early age, she is mortified by their patriotic “over-the-top' ways. When she falls in love with Ian, a WASP*y non-Greek, Toula struggles to get her family to accept her eager fiancé while she herself comes to terms with her heritage, her cultural identity, and their meddlesome ways.
