'My Life in Ruins'


The enormous success of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" left Nia Vardalos trying to get to that level again. She doesn't reach those heights with this comedy, but fans of the earlier film still should appreciate her work and the story here.

Vardalos plays a novice tour guide whose love life takes a turn for the better as she takes a group of visitors through Greece; among the supporting players, Richard Dreyfuss shines as a tourist who has some wisdom to impart to the heroine.

DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Vardalos, director Donald Petrie and writer Mike Reiss; deleted scenes; alternate ending. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
