My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Review - AVClub

AVClub: Charity allows for a list of possible justifications for a sequel to My Big Fat Greek Wedding beyond mere filthy lucre. For one thing, there’s no reason that sequels trailing their predecessors by a decade-plus should be limited to summer blockbusters and cult comedies. Hollywood studios are often correctly charged with catering unproductively to a dwindling audience of teenagers and boy-men, and a Greek Wedding follow-up certainly doesn’t embrace that demographic. A smaller-scale 14-years-later sequel also presents opportunities to ruminate on the passage of time; in this way, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is, at least on paper, more akin to Before Midnight than to Jurassic World.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's the one area of pop culture where my parents pass the test -- they know an unnecessary sequel when they see one.

Didn't keep my mom from seeing Sister Act 2, but otherwise, they call bullshit on most sequels.
