In November, HBO Home Entertainment will bring My Big Fat Greek Wedding to Blu-ray. Director Joel Zwick's hit romantic comedy stars Nia Vardalos (My Life in Ruins) as a Greek woman whose impending marriage to a non-Greek man (Joel Corbett, I Hate Valentine's Day) causes major cultural upheavals within her tightly-knit family.
From HBO's official synopsis:
"Toula (Vardalos) is thirty. And unmarried. Which means as a nice Greek girl - she's a failure. All her cousins did the right thing - married Greek boys and made Greek babies. So everyone worries: what will become of Toula? Then one day she sees the ultimate unattainable guy, Ian Miller (Corbett), and realizes the only way her life will get better is if he gets away from her big, fat Greek family. Toula escapes from the family restaurant. She exchanges her seating hostess jacket for a college diploma, convinces her aunt (Andrea Martin, Black Christmas) to give her a new job, and trades in her coke-bottle glasses for contact lenses, just in time for him to walk back into her life...Their courtship is an Olympian culture clash. Can Ian handle Toula, her parents, her aunts, uncles, cousins, and several centuries of Greek heritage? Will Toula discover the love she's been missing right in the heart of her big, fat family?"
HBO's Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack presents the film in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1 with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The disc also contains the following bonus supplements:
Audio commentaries with writer/star Nia Vardalos, actor John Corbett, and director Joel Zwick
A Look Back at My Big Fat Greek Wedding retrospective featurette
My Big Fat Greek Wedding streets on November 13th.
Uh, not to be a pill, but can we call this Nia Vardalos' hit romantic comedy, not "director Joel Zwick's..."?. Vardalos wrote the play about her own family, she adapted it to film and she very ably starred in it. It's her baby from beginning to end, and HER enthusiasm and persistence were the chief reasons it was an enormous hit.
