Some of you might know that I am Greek. My maiden name is Alexopoulos and I used to have to spell it all of the time. I am not 100% Greek but some of my family members are. I love the heritage and have enjoyed learning about it. When My Big Fat Greek Wedding came out, of course my entire family went to see it. And we all immediately discussed how it was our family pretty much to a T. Especially my father, Aunts, and Uncles – since they grew up in a Greek household.
As soon as I heard that My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 was coming out, I was thrilled! I just could not wait to see what the Portokalos family would be getting up to this time. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to see it in theaters (my husband and I are lucky to get one date night a month away from our little ones), but many of my family members did. They told me how great it was and that I would need to grab it when it comes out on Blu-ray and DVD. Well, it did – on June 21st, 2016 – and I finally just got my copy. This movie is hilarious – dare I say, better than the first? I loved it! I was excited to be able to call my cousin and laugh about all the jokes and things that we picked up on. What a great film for anyone – of any heritage! Be sure to pick up your copy and/or enter to win one below!
The lovable and funny Portokalos family is back and as uncontrollable as ever in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Written by Academy Award-nominee Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, My Life in Ruins), My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 reunites the entire beloved clan as they celebrate the biggest, Greekest wedding yet in a film that FOX-TV calls, “Hilarious and heartwarming…A big fat great time!” My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD also features a hysterical gag reel and never-before-seen bonus features including a sit down with the stars to hear what really happened behind the scenes.
Toula (Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett, “Parenthood”) have raised their daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris, Men, Women, and Children) in the bosom of her extended Greek family. But the now 17-year-old is eager to set out on her own. When an unexpected wedding threatens to disrupt the clan’s delicate balance, it can either bring them all together or put them all at odds in a heartwarming family comedy as sweet as a slice of baklava. The entire original ensemble reprises their iconic roles, including Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Michael Constantine (The Juror), Lainie Kazan (Beaches), Andrea Martin (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb), Gia Carides (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me), Joey Fatone (The Opposite Sex), Louis Mandylor (Code of Honor), Bess Meisler (The Perfect Family), with Elena Kampouris, John Stamos (“Grandfathered”) and Rita Wilson (HBO’s “Girls”) joining the cast for the first time.
