Suggested correction: We see the car three times (getting in at wedding, on road, arriving at reception), and it is a Cadillac DeVille limo, about 1990 model year, in all three shots. Note the emblems on the hubcaps, tail lights and bumper.


Toula Portokalos: There are three things that every Greek woman must do in life: marry Greek boys, make Greek babies, and feed everyone.

Trivia: In the Easter scene, Aunt Voula comes over to Ian and Toula and says to Ian, "Let me touch your hair". This was not in the script. Voula forgot her lines and immediately came up with the hair improv.
