My-Big-Fat-Greek Wedding My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a light romantic comedy about a woman in her thirties (Nia Vardalos) whose Greek Orthodox parents (Michael Constantine and Laine Kazan) flip out, first, because she’s not yet married, and second, because she’s fallen in love with a a non-Greek man (John Corbett).
