The Independent Culture

Nia Vardalos, star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, here reprises her part as a Greek-American singleton in what might as well be called My Big Fat Greek Package Holiday.

Don't rush out to book. She plays a tour guide, fed up with both her stingy employers and the bunch of international stereotypes who comprise her latest group – boozy Aussies, uptight Brits, vulgar Americans. She wants to give them culture but all they want is tourist-shop tat and the Hard Rock Café. The jokes are on a similar level of sophistication – the group's coach driver is a Greek named Poopy Kakkas, the senior citizen is a kleptomaniac and the resident funny guy is Richard Dreyfuss. Aristophanes, you should be here now. Or maybe not.
