Wallflower gets a makeover, cute boyfriend follows. Second City alum Nia Vardalos stars in this ethnic comedy, which she also wrote—an ambitious way to break into a leading role; too bad the results are insubstantial. The intentionally broad Greek-American milieu is oddly colorless; having all of the cousins named Nick or Nikki is an OK gag, but once you're past it there's little to hold your attention. Daddy huffs and puffs over the boyfriend's Waspy parents, but you know a bear hug is in store. The cinematography by Jeffrey Jur is sharper and funnier than most of the material. Directed by Joel Zwick; with Michael Constantine, John Corbett, and 'N Sync's Joey Fatone. 95 min.
