My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Summary: What is the movie about?
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 sees Toula and Ian going through a bit of a crisis. The couple’s relationship has “lost some of its spark,” and their teenage daughter is rebellious and struggling to cope with her loving but suffocating Greek family, the synopsis says. When her parents Gus and Maria find out that their marriage license was never signed by the priest, effectively invalidating their marriage, their current priest agrees to a new ceremony since he can’t just sign the original ceremony.
After 50 years together, the two are getting married again and Maria wants the wedding she never had the first time. She does her best, hires a wedding planner and so on. And of course the whole family is there too!
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 begins streaming on Saturday, September 16, 2023 on Netflix.
