With all three being together, I thought this would be a better track. Itís actually fairly dry. There are a lot of times that I would have liked to know little details, like, for example, how Ian really proposed to her. The movieís personal enough, I donít think that detail wouldíve pryed too much. There are some funny moments, though, and a lot of what Mrs. Vardalos says is quite interesting. There are a lot of details about her family and how some of the gags were inspired. She also talks gives out some stories from the set sometimes. Mr. Corbett and Mr. Zwick donít talk much and when they do itís passable. The entire track is basically them watching the movie with the occasional comment. There are a lot of silent spots. Itís not a boring track, it was just not as good as it could have been.

The above review is right on the money as Corbett and Zwick chime in on the odd occasion but clearly this is Vardalosí show. She dominates the commentary track as she talks about how much the characters and situations in the movie are based on her own family. She also provides amusing anecdotes about making the movie, including Andrea Martinís uncanny knack for improvisation and her make out scenes with Corbett.
