My Big Fat Greek Wedding

This is not about Greek weddings in general, I'll save that for another post! This is about the film! Recently, if you are in the UK you would have noticed that is has been on TV a lot these past few days. Even if you're not in the UK you would have undoubtedly seen it many, many, many times.

When it first came out, most Greeks I know went to see it at least 3 times at the cinema, they then got the DVD for everyone in their family, and still always watch it when it comes on TV! If anything, it made us able to really get together as Greeks, and laugh at our craziness!

There are some cracking one liners in this film which really sum us up. Here are a few of my favourites:

"There are two kinds of people - Greeks, and everyone else who wish they was Greek"

"Is he a nice Greek boy? No, e xeno, e xeno with the big, long hair on top of his head!"

"Nice Greek girls are supposed to do three things in life: marry Greek boys, make Greek babies, and feed everyone... until the day we die." 

"If nagging were an olympic sport, my aunt Voula would win a gold medal!"

Post some of your favourite Big Fat Greek Wedding quotes below!


  1. είναι κέικι, βρε...

  2. "Say a word, any word, and I'll tell you how the root of that word is Greek"

  3. My dad believed in two things: That Greeks should educate non Greeks about being Greek and every ailment from psoriasis to poison ivy can be cured with Windex.

  4. "Ian, if you're gonna be in this family, I get you some earplugs because the Portokalos women, if they're not nagging someone... THEY DIE!"

  5. "What do you mean he don't eat no meat? It's ok, I make lamb!"

    I couldnt bare it that no one has put the most famous quote on here yet haha!
