All Other Movies Can Go To Hell. One Greek Mother’s Response to Nia Vardalos’ News


A video is going viral online, even showing up on Time Magazine’s website and other blogs, showing the response of one Greek American mother’s reaction when she heard that Nia Vardalos has decided to make a sequel to “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”

The video, shot and uploaded to YouTube by her son Angelo, show’s his mom’s excitement. “All the other movies can go to hell” she says, while putting what appears to be galatoboureko in a tupperware container for her son to take with him when he leaves. “I’m the only one who makes it moist,” she tells her son.

And the best takeaway from her reaction— “To hell what people say” about people who are saying that the sequel won’t be as good as the first.

Indeed. To hell what people say. Oh– and mom also reminds the world… This is where life began. With the Greeks. Life began with the Greeks.”
