John Corbett

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

If you’re a hopeless romantic, Greek, into the career moves of John Corbett or just really passionate about the films of the year 2002 (what?, I don’t know your life), then the news that My Big Fat Greek Wedding is getting a sequel 12 years later should be music to your ears. For a refresher — it was 12 years ago, after all — the original story followed the mousy, frumpy Toula Portokalos (Nia Vardalos), a woman from an overbearing but loving Greek family who just wanted to see her wind up with a nice Greek boy. She wanted more out of life, and that meant a career and love on her own terms, specifically with a dreamboat in the form of John Corbett, as many a woman in pop culture are wont to do (attn: Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah from Parenthood). She was able to find love and happiness with her new guy, who adapted to her huge family’s culture as Toula learned to accept that maybe she liked it a little bit, too. The new film will follow Corbett and Vardalos (who will also write) and her whole gang, who deal with a family secret getting revealed and an even BIGGER (even fatter?) wedding that brings them all together again. So what’s the secret? Who’s getting married? Will it really be bigger? Fatter? Greeker? Wedding-ier?

Sex and the City

I’m not quite sure why I decided to watch Sex and the City in its entirety. It could have been my curiosity about the show, or my desire to put Sex and the City 2 in some fair context in an Internet blogging landscape overwhelmingly composed of male writers and male readers, or maybe I was seeking out some sort of endurance test…or maybe all these are lame excuses to shamelessly justify watching a show that one would so easily encounter ridicule for watching.

The new film from Guillermo Arriaga, writer of Amores Perros and The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, is a heavy-handed, oppressively somber affair starring a lot of deadly serious actors.
