** Happens again in the sequel, where Toula has let herself go a little bit. There is again a noticeable improvement after she takes a trip to a salon.

** The film is noteworthy in that HollywoodHomely and HollywoodPudgy aren't much of an issue, where the film show men and women of different looks and shapes and sizes and where their looks aren't a big deal.

* {{Sequelitis}}: While the film might not be universally beloved, it's still much 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.
** The actual sequel gets hit with this too.

** The actual sequel gets hit with this too.''My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2'' wasn't ''as'' poorly-received as the series was, and did well enough at the box-office to earn back its budget in its opening weekend, but reviews still weren't too kind to it, accusing it of being too much of a rehash of the first film and generally lacking in substance.

* 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.

* HollywoodHomely: Partly averted in that, while certainly attractive, Nia Vardalos is anything but "Hollywood beautiful," and her "homely" look was genuinely convincing.
-->'''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]].
