Still working in her parents' Greek restaurant, Toula Portokalos's daughter Paris is growing up. She is getting ready to graduate high school and Toula and Ian are experiencing marital issues. When Toula's parents find out they were never officially married, another wedding is in the works. Can this big, fat, Greek event help to bring the family together?

What can I say? I absolutely loved - like most people did - the first movie. So going into the sequel I was worried it wouldn't live up to the hype of the first one.
I absolutely loved the second one. It had me laughing so often that I'm going to see it again to catch all of the great lines that I might have missed laughing at some other fabulous lines.

The night was awesome because before the film an authentic Greek dance group performed a little dance for us. It was so entertaining to watch. We were told that this dance group went and competed with 77 other Greek dance groups this past summer and they ranked number 1! And they won many awards for directing and costuming as well.

Then the movie started. And let me tell you - one of my favorite little jokes from the first movie is the fact that Windex fixes everything. So when this movie started with a Windex-like bit my life was made. I would've been happy with just that. But this Windex joke continues on throughout the whole movie! I LOVED it and laughed way too hard and way too long at the plain and simple fact that they kept this one simple joke that I loved alive for this sequel.

The movie has you loving big families and wishing you were Greek so that you would have an annoyingly close knit family that loves you so much. It was nice to see that Toula and Ian in their relationship still going strong. Sure they have their struggles, but what couple doesn't? And then to see their daughter as well was nice. Although she, like her mom in the first movie, was struggling with the close-knit family that audiences love so much!

So...if you all could just go and see it so I could talk to everyone about it I would really appreciate that!
