My Big Fat Greek Wedding

It is the unenviable lot of the film critic to endure a long string of so-called "romantic comedies", most of which are only marginally romantic, and not at all funny. So, when there's an exception to the rule, it's worth taking notice. Such is ...

My Life in Ruins

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
