* HypeBacklash: ''My Big Fat Greek Wedding'' reached levels of popularity that are almost unheard of for an indie film. Because of this, it did have some vocal detractors who felt that received a lot more attention than it deserved.

* MemeticMutation: "Put some Windex on it."" * {{Sequelitis}}: While the film might not be ''universally'' beloved, it's still a hell of a lot better regarded than ''My Big Fat Greek Life'', which is regarded as one of the worst television spin-offs ever to be made, and among the worst major network sitcoms of all-time. ----

-->'''Creator/RogerEbert''': Everyone in this movie looks like they could be a real person. The romance involves not impossibly attractive people, but a 30-year-old woman who looks OK when she pulls herself out of her Frump Phase...I relaxed, knowing it was set in the real world, and not in the Hollywood alternative universe where Creator/JuliaRoberts [[HollywoodDateless can't get a date]].

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Arguably. The unwanted fuss over Toula's wedding can come off as "What your groom or you wants in the wedding doesn't matter, so feel free to change anything and everything about it to suit your family."" However, it's also often TruthInTelevision.

Deleting Natter.
** Could just be ValuesDissonance. The idea that it's the right of the bride and groom to decide what the wedding should be like is really just as much a cultural value as the Greek value that the whole family has the right to decide what it should be like together. It's not like there's one universal, cross-cultural right way to get married. ** Quite a family-''friendly'' Aesop, if you ask me. "Your wedding is just one day, and what ''really'' matters is the new life that you two are starting together...so just relax, don't sweat the details or the inevitable hiccups, and enjoy yourselves."

* {{Applicability}}: The movie works because it doesn't matter if you are not Greek, ''every'' family has a series of quirks that make it hard for outsiders to get on the inside. You can include almost any number of variations of ethnicity and religion into the title and the movie largely comes out the same.
