My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - First Look Trailer


It’s been fourteen years since Toula Portokalos-Miller had her Big Fat Greek Wedding, but now it’s time to round up the family and do it all over again. Except this time there’s a difference.

When we join Toula and Ian again, they’re now parents to a teenage daughter who’s all set to go to college (as far away from her family as possible).

As they struggle to find the balance between being good parents and making time for each other, the couple still must deal with Toula’s ever-present, overbearing Greek family.

The Extreme Adventures Of Super Dave Review


Bad
Ever wished longingly for the glory days when you could watch "Late Night with David Letterman" and catch a little bit of that wacky Super Dave Osborne, the stuntman who just can't get things right? Well now you can relive those happy moments at your leisure, by taking Super Dave home in his theatrical -- er, straight-to-video -- debut: The Extreme Adventures of Super Dave!

What, you aren't frantically dialing your phone to reserve your copy at the video store yet? Take off your shoes and put down the car keys. If this video has proven anything, it's that what can be funny for 1/2 a minute probably usually won't make it for 91. Oh, how Super Dave proves it.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Review


Good

Sometimes a movie's success stems more from spirit, charm and perseverance than from any originality or artistry involved in its creation. The unabashedly confectionery ethnic comedy-romance "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" is a shining example of just that phenomenon.

Of the same feel-good disposition as the Aussie sleeper hit "Strictly Ballroom," it's a low-budget, ugly duckling fairytale that is predictable and brimming with clichés -- but so earnest, funny and joyful that it's a complete delight all the same.

Adapted by Nia Vardalos from her own one-woman stage show, the movie also features Vardalos in the starring role as 30-ish Toula Portokalos, a frumpy, lovelorn waitress in her father's Greek restaurant. A shy girl who's fed up with her huge family's amusingly, exasperatingly intrusive hounding about finding a husband, she seeks self-empowerment by enrolling in community college computer classes, getting a make-over and taking new job at a relative's travel agency. In the process Toula discovers her assertive, flirtatious side -- just in time to meet Mr. Right.

Austin Powers: The Shagged Me Review


Bad

It's a shame Mike Myers didn't invent Austin Powers during his "SaturdayNight Live" tenure. The occasionally funny sketch bits he stringsweakly together with about six minutes of plot in his "Austin Powers"James Bond spoofs might have played well as short gags in a recurring "SNL"routine.

Imagine, if you will, a skit in which Dr. Evil (Myers'mock-Blofeld) goes on "Jerry Springer" to confront his disgruntledson, who (god forbid!) has no ambition to take over the world. Or an episodehosted by the unbelievably beautiful yet seemingly accessible Heather Graham,in which she dons Urusla Andress' bikini from "Dr. No" and ultra-tossablehair extensions to play a CIA sexpot named Felicity Shagwell opposite Myers'ribald, randy, chest toupee- and cravat-wearing super-spy.
