Thirty-year-old, drab and dull Toula Portokalos (Vardalos) is still single, working at her parents' Greek restaurant. She refuses her father's offers to send her to Greece to find a husband, which doesn't sit well with her family, who's worried that she doesn't want to get married.

Toula wishes for something more, something for herself. After a makeover and signing up for some computer classes despite her father's old-world objections, Toula's life starts to turn around when she takes a job at her aunt's travel agency and falls in love with a tall, handsome high school teacher named Ian (Corbett). But unfortunately for her father, he isn't Greek, and even worse.. he's a vegetarian.

After Ian proposes to Toula and she accepts, she begins to come to terms with her heritage and cultural identity, while struggling to get her family to accept him -- and to get his family to accept hers.

Based on the hit one-woman autobiographical play by Winnipeg native Nia Vardalos and filmed mostly in Toronto.
