Review: Toula Portakalos feels trapped in her large Greek family, where women are expected to do only three things: "marry Greek men, have Greek babies, and feed everyone until the day they die." Rebelling against this fate, Toula quits the family restaurant, goes to college, fixes her hair, and falls in love with Ian, a guy who is way-too-good-to-be-true, and not Greek. This horrifies Toula's Greek culture-crazed father and sets off a major culture clash between her loud, eccentric family (whose activities include roasting whole lambs on the front-yard barbecue spit) and Ian's subdued, overcivilized Anglo-Saxon parents. This movie is that rare romantic comedy that has the courage to trust its simple, human story and not resort to overwrought Hollywood sentimentality and phony glamour. It's also filled with big, fat, crowd-pleasing laughs, making it a wedding most worth attending.
