  • Fun, beautifully filmed, family film!!! 10/15/2017 12:00:00 AM by nina-antonakes 10

    I've seen this movie twice now and loved it both times! I had a smile on my face from start to finish. It's a charming film that you can bring the entire family to and you don't need to be Greek, or a golfer, to enjoy it. However, if you are Greek or a philhellene, you'll particularly enjoy the gorgeous Greek scenery and the authentic representation of Greek people. And, this is the first time I've seen a fusion of the Greek Orthodox Church and Nikos Kazantzakis philosophy working together in harmony to support the themes of the movie. Well done!!!!!!

    Delightful movie that kept me smiling and laughing from start to finish. Beautiful scenery and cute story line with a great cast of characters. I've seen it twice already and enjoyed it even more the second time. I would watch it again and I highly recommend it for the entire family!

  • Being a real hero (No Spoilers, No Bogeys) 5/27/2017 12:00:00 AM by dishlady69 9

    I went to see a screening of this great film a few months ago. Without giving anything away, I think it's fine to mention that it really captures different aspects of the Greek condition, measures for success, and a few other things. What I loved about the movie is that behind all the humor, picaresque scenes, and romantic touches is a basic morality tale that really hits home. There are unexpected heroic elements in many of the characters, regardless of their social class, training, etc.

    (I can't say much more than this or I'll set off a spoiler alert. If you haven't seen it yet, please plan to!)

  • Wonderful Movie 10/16/2017 12:00:00 AM by ahepatoronto 9

    I saw this movie last night an thoroughly enjoyed it. If you liked "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" you will like this movie even more. The acting was better and more authentic, the scenery was spectacular and there was many more laughs. John O'Hurley or J. Peterman, Elaine's boss on the Seinfeld show played the bad American perfectly. He was hilarious. Take your kids to watch this great family film.
