My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) Nia Vardalos Movie Reviews



Now happily married (though the romantic spark has largely gone), Toula and Ian have a 17-year-old daughter, Paris, who is already getting pressure from Toula’s father, Gus, to find a boyfriend, get married and start having Greek babies.  Toula is more concerned with a different life milestone for Paris, college, and the family desperately hopes that the young woman will choose to stay near family in Chicago by attending Northwestern University.  As the family generally gives hugs until suffocating, Paris has begun mulling over being as far away as possible from the most overbearing family one could never hope for.  Meanwhile, in an ironic twist of fate, Gus gets pressure from his family to marry when it is discovered that he and his wife of fifty years, Maria, were never officially wed due to the marriage certificate remaining unsigned by the priest.  Gus thinks its just a formality that can be settled with a quick jaunt to city hall, but Maria, thinking he didn’t do it right the first time around, wants him to earn the privilege of being her husband yet again with a real marriage proposal and proper formal wedding.
