    As I am from European descent,I can understand why families hold on to \"tradition\". A Greek girl tries to change her family,when they get stuck to the \"old ways\" of romance.Toula Portokalos(NiaVardalos),meets Ian Miller(John Corbitt),but the romance, unfortunately, starts out with trouble.Her dad Gus(Constantine), and mother(Kazan) try to change her mind,but she persists with following her \"heart and feelings\".Toula\'s brothers are hilarious as they play pranks on their future Brother-in-law.When the couple meet his wacky parents,the riotous laughs unfold! I say cheers to the cast, for this wonderful production that proves Love has other plans in mind.
