The writer and director offer a marketable point of difference to the Hollywood pap that typically dominates this genre, without overplaying their multiculturalism angle.

The material may have been funny on stage, but it seems strained on film as both families register their horror at the romance.

Is at times broad and a touch gauche but it has the spark of real life, and a sense that it could not have come from anywhere else. It's also really funny.

There are a few samples of quality produce to be extracted from the new Australian rom-com Alex & Eve. What a shame the whole lot is squashed flat by huge chunks of stale corn and cheese left over from My Big Fat Greek Wedding all those years ago.

In the end, this is more comedy than romance, and on that level, it succeeds.
