Hollywood-Greek Films: the Worst 5

1. My Big Fat Greek Wedding*
2. Mamma Mia
3. Captain Corelli's Mandolin
4. Shirley Valentine
5. Zorba the Greek**

*The top entry is the only film ever that I haven't managed to watch to the end – it's that bad. This could also make it my worst film of all time. In my book it panders to broad stereotypes and racist notions of Greeks and Greece. And it's just dreadfully, embarrassingly unfunny, unconvincing, superficial and made me want to vomit. Needless to say, it was hugely popular.

**I know, I know, it's not so bad, I just ran out of any others.
