The Modern Wedding Comedy Guide | My Big Fat Greek Wedding
My Big Fat Greek Wedding

The Happy Couple: Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett)

The Hanger On: Her entire family.

What’s the situation? Toula is unhappy in her life so, in a surprisingly sensible move for a rom-com, she does something about it, sorting out her wardrobe and improving her education. In a non-surprising move for a rom-com, this was all inspired by a guy, and leads to said guy – Ian – noticing her and the two striking up a rather sweet romance. Which, against all the odds, survives her very loud, very boisterous family and their attempts to feed the vegetarian Ian some lamb, to dress Toula as a cotton wool ball for her wedding day and their determination to treat every problem with window cleaner.

Worst moment: The dress, a great Greek tragedy in sartorial form.

Moral of the story? We’re still not quite sure. All’s well that ends well? We can all get along if we give it a chance? Something cuddly anyway.

Wedding checklist:

Does the wedding go ahead?
Does true love triumph?
Is there a run for love at the end?
Comic relief from elderly relatives?
Realism score 7/10

I would love to hear some opinions about The Accidental Husband. The film with morals so twisted, I could barely watch it without smashing the TV up. More
