Ratings & Reviews

  • Vardalos made the Portokaloses so funny they'll make your own family seem tame. show more

  • Five minutes into the film, I relaxed, knowing it was set in the real world, and not in the Hollywood alternative universe where Julia Roberts can't get a date. show more

  • Vardalos is a breath of fresh air. After all the little nipped and tucked bunnies we've been seeing onscreen for so long, we forget what real women look like.
