My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

They’re baaaack!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding taught us the meaning of “opa” and introduced us to creative new ways to use Windex.

I loved that movie, and it’s no wonder it’s the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Blu-rayFinally, the long-awaited sequel, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, is out on Blu-ray, so we can happily be reunited with the crazy and relatable Portokalos family. I can’t wait to watch it.

Written by Academy Award® nominee Nia Vardalos, who stars alongside the entire returning cast of favorites, the film reveals a Portokalos family secret that brings the beloved characters back together for an even bigger and Greeker wedding.

To celebrate the occasion, I’m giving away half a dozen copies of the Blu-ray Combo Pack which includes bonus features about the making of the “Greekquel,” “My Big Fat Greek Dinner” and a gag reel.

  1. I looked forward to seeing this in the theater. I usually go for quite heavy, dramatic fare when paying for it, but this just seemed FUN. Perhaps I’ll win it! 😀 Thank you for the opportunity!

  2. It is our Friday night movie to watch tonight. When I started to read your post I thought, NOOOO, I can’t go no further in case she reveals something. So excited to see it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the first.

  3. What a fun movie for this weekend. I absolutely can’t wait to see it.

  4. I’m already subscribed so here’s hoping. Thank you!

  5. The first was such a feel good movie and it’s lovely to see them all back again. As usual I’m too far away to win but good luck to everyone else!

  6. I loved this movie and loved the sequel. We have seen the first one 10 million times..,,how many times has my husband said”why do you want to leave me?

    Please enter me in the drawing. I subscribed as zkmoon14@yahoo.com

    When the first movie came out I was a kid. Now watching as an adult would be a new experience to see the sequel.

  8. I really enjoyed the first one, so I’m sure I’ll like this one. I don’t have blueray though so don’t worry about adding me. I really enjoy your blog.

  9. Tweeted. Can you believe I’ve never seen either movie? I want to so badly. I see a double movie date night in my future.
    Then I’ll finally understand the Windex reference!

  21. Tom Kelly says:

    I enjoyed My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 almost as much as the first.

  22. I totally enjoyed this movie. Not sure why the ratings are so low. I will admit it might not have been as funny as the first one, but it still make for a great movie night. Hubby and I had a great movie night with pizza and wine!!
