Nia Vardalos' film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3" is among the 10 films recommended by the BBC.
Nicholas Barber has chosen his favourite ten for this month, and it is no coincidence that the movie about the Porokalos family is in it.
Specifically, it is in 7th place on the list, while the BBC characterises it as a "big fat phenomenon."
"My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a big fat phenomenon. Starting life as an autobiographical one-woman play, written by and starring Nia Vardalos, it went on to be one of the most profitable romantic comedies ever, with a budget of $5 million and a worldwide gross of $368.7 million," wrote Barber.
"A spin-off sitcom and a belated sequel weren't as successful, but maybe the threequel can recapture some of the initial magic. Once again, a Greek-American travel agent, Toula Portokalos (Vardalos), and her non-Greek husband (John Corbett), are dealing with her close-knit family, but this time they are in sunny Greece.
"After the death of Toula's father (Michael Constantine, who died in 2021), the family visits the town where he grew up. "[Michael] had told me he wouldn't be able to join us for the third film and his wish was that we go on," Vardalos said on Instagram. "I wrote the screenplay to reflect Michael's decision and will always treasure his last messages to me."
"On general release from 6 September."
