Editor’s Note: This review of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3” was written during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike. Real Mom of SFV would like to acknowledge that without the labor of the actors who are currently on strike, films such as this would not be possible.
I have so much love for the “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” series. I remember watching the first movie and laughing at the antics of Toula Portokalos (Nia Vardalos) and her dad, played by the late Michael Constantine. The latest movie in the series, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3,” follows the Portokalos family to Greece for their grandest adventure yet!
The film stars Nia Vardalos (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2”), John Corbett (“And Just Like That…”), Louis Mandylor (“NCIS”), Joey Fatone (“Trolls Band Together”) with Lainie Kazan (“The Amityville Murders”) and Andrea Martin (“Only Murders in the Building”).
When Toula (Vardalos) plans a trip to Greece to honor her late father Gus’ (Michael Constantine, The Juror) final wish, the family’s reunion becomes complicated with the reveal of a deep family secret. With non-stop laughter at every twist and turn, the highly anticipated third installment of the franchise brings a heartwarming reunion that honors the essence of what makes the original so unique.
The film is available on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Add this to your movie collection so that you can listen to commentary from writer/director/actress Nia Vardalos, plus get a behind-the-scenes look at making the film with interviews from the cast and crew, sneak peeks, and inside stories!
