To sneak preview a later life lesson in this review, you could trade the Greek demographic of the central Portokalos family in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” with any other American immigrant nationality and get much of the same effect. Nearly all people are being both defined by and embarrassed by their family. Whether you’re Greek or not, you will watch both original and the sequel and poke fun at the similarities and differences. Such is an easy draw, but that charm has limits in a been-there-done-that sequel.
