This has been a good summer for movies so far, between Up and now My Life in Ruins, things are definitely looking ‘up.’
Nia Vardalos, of My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Connie and Carla, returns to the screen with this tale of Georgia, an uptight history professor who ends up as a tourguide in Greece when the teaching job dries up. One particular tour changes her life and hilarity ensues. This is a delightful romantic comedy that the star and cast, including Richard Dreyfuss as well as Rachel Dratch and Harland Williams, effortlessly bring to life.
In a summer also littered with slob comedies and angry robots, this is a breath of fresh air, a fun flick, highly recommended.
