QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Comedy: A woman tries to balance her teenage daughter, her aging parents and her marriage that's plateaued due to her feeling the need to fix everything.
PLOT:
Having gone through her extended family giving her then-boyfriend the once-over and then some due to him not being Greek nearly two decades ago, Toula (NIA VARDALOS) and Ian (JOHN CORBETT) have been happily married ever since, or so it would seem. He's the principal at the high school their 17-year-old daughter Paris (ELENA KAMPOURIS) attends, while Toula volunteers there and helps at the family restaurant run by her parents, Gus (MICHAEL CONSTANTINE) and Maria (LAINIE KAZAN). But due to Toula always feeling the need to fix things and be an ever-present mother in Paris' life, her relationship with Ian has plateaued, something not lost on her Aunt Voula (ANDREA MARTIN) who suggests ways to rekindle the flame.

But Toula is obsessed with Paris and what college she'll attend in the fall (staying close at Northwestern or heading off to NYU), while the discovery that Gus and Maria are not technically married -- due to the priest having forgotten to sign the wedding document fifty years ago -- gives her one more thing to worry about. That's especially true when Gus refuses to propose to Maria in order to get married (again), resulting in them have a falling out.

That prompts the rest of the family to kick into help mode, including from Toula's brother, Nick (LOUIS MANDYLOR); their cousins Nikki (GIA CARIDES) and Angelo (JOEY FANTONE), and even the family matriarch, Mana-Yiayia (BESS MEISLER). When that's resolved and the nuptials are back on, the family cooperates to pull off another big fat Greek wedding, including with Gus' brother from Greece, Panos (MARK MARGOLIS), showing up for the ceremony.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
