The wedding is over, and this version of My Big Fat Greek Wedding written by Nia Vardalos has no spark remaining.
Mostly we miss Michael Constantine and his windex as Mr. Portokalos father of the bride he appears to have been the heart of the comedy in the story. He passed on a few years ago and no one in the script rises to his level when it comes to the comedy the story needs.
It’s back to Greece to meet the entire family and connect with Toula’s (Nia Vardalos) relatives that reach back before her parents migrated to the United States. Her mother Maria played as old and a bit out of connection by Laine Kazan has a slender role early in the film.
As the relatives meet each other there is some conflict and a few secrets revealed and a dry fountain is revived, but there is no spirt, and no heart in the presentation or the story.
It’s just OK but not that good.
