Ian Douglas: A somewhat unusual rom-com in that we know it is going to end in a wedding, the fun is in how they get there. The film has been a MASSIVE sleeper hit in the US, still going strong on the US Top Ten after 16 weeks (at time of writing) and the distributors are expecting a similar success here. Much of the humour comes from the Greek community, and their unusual customs. A feel-good crowd pleaser.. enjoy :-)
