Continuing the 2016 trend of causing people to ask, “Oh, they’re giving that movie a sequel? Now?”, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 reunites the Portokalos clan from the 2002 sleeper hit 14 years later. Writer-star Nia Vardalos returns as Toula, with an even larger family (see: her daughter, Paris, by newcomer Elena Kampouris) and another crazy wedding to pull together. Though they definitely missed an opportunity to call this My Bigger, Fatter Greek Wedding, the movie does deserve some credit for pulling Joey Fatone from his busy schedule to reprise his role as Cousin Angelo.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 opens nationwide on March 25, but The A.V. Club and Universal Pictures have an opportunity for you to see it for free on March 21.

“Parenting and marriage is becoming tougher and tougher for Toula (Nia Vardalos) and her husband Ian. Not only has their relationship lost some of its spark, but they’re also dealing with a rebellious teenage daughter who clashes with Greek traditions. On top of that, Toula must contend with aging parents and the endless needs of cousins and friends. When a shocking family secret comes to light, the entire Portokalos clan makes plans to come together for an even bigger wedding than before.”
