Toula, working at her parent’s diner again, is dealing with the pain of her only daughter, Paris, potentially leaving for college.  Its then, Toula and Ian realized that they are neglecting each other and need to get the spark back.  Paris likes being Greek, but is put off by the closeness of her family.  Her grandfather, Gus, wants her to find a Greek boy to marry; and her parents want here to attend a college close to home.  Paris just want to move as far away as possible.  And just a Toula is trying to come to terms with changes in her home, Gus, Toula’s father, discovers that the priest did not sign is marry license.  So, he and Maria are not married.  Toula and Ian must put together a wedding for Toula’s, convince their daughter to keep her college pick local, and strengthen their relationship.

This film is a homage to the first film.  You must see the first to get the hidden and upfront jokes in this movie (i.e. bundt cake with a flower, Windex, all words being Greek, and moose cacas).  This movie is like the first but with a “Sandwich Generation” spin.  My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 does make you laugh and tear up but not at full price.  If you like the first movie, see this one as a matinee.  It’s not better than the first but just as good.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars
