Hailed by critics as "heartfelt and hilarious" (Rolling Stone) and fueled by unprecedented word-of-mouth buzz, this delightful story about a woman's comic struggle to find her identity and one true love while dealing with her crazy Greek family became "a phenomenon" (The New York Times).

The film is also the third best-selling comedy on video (VHS and DVD combined) and the 5th best-selling comedy on DVD.The film received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Original Screenplay as well as two Golden Globe® nominations for Best Comedy or Musical and Best Actress in a Comedy (Vardalos).

Specs have yet to be revealed for the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack, but supplements will include: Audio commentary with Vardalos, Corbett and director Joel Zwick (from the original DVD release); "A Look Back at My Big Fat Greek Wedding" - A brand new 30-minute retrospective, re-uniting Vardalos and Corbett to reminisce about the making of the film; and never-before-seen deleted scenes.
