Ever since My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 was announced, the internet has been awash in eye-rolls. Films fans all over the world got snarky about this movie’s mere existence. “Why does this exist?” internet commenters asked the oblivion, which responded with its vast, empty silence. “Who wants this?”
The answer to that first question is “because the first movie grossed $241 million in the United States alone, making it the highest grossing romantic comedy of all time in the U.S.” The answer to that second question is “your parents, your grandparents, and countless other people in your life who couldn’t care less about Star Wars and superheroes.” For a certain segment of the moviegoing population, this movie will be an event.
