    This is one of Richard Dreyfuss' and Nia Vardalos' best movies. It's a great movie for those of you who love Greek food or of all the places you've been in the world,you've never made it to Greece.

    Ruins is sometimes as sunny as its locations but as familiar and predictable as a Greek diner.

    Feels like warmed-over souvlaki.

    A strangely self-loathing affair that paints Vardalos's tour group as a uniformly ill-mannered, culturally illiterate bunch, while rendering Greece itself as a badly plumbed third-world hellhole run by lazy, Zorba-dancing louts.
