The analysis of the two Vardalos films involves a multi-disciplinary approach through the social sciences. The analysis considers the themes explored through dialogue, such as the use of stereotypes, humour, role of the family as seen through the main character and narrator in these films. This is a window into seeing contemporary Greek diasporic culture as told through the migration experience, and its resonance with the second generation Greek diaspora. The impact of globalisation presents a modern force which conflicts with the struggle of the self and or of the group that pertains to a particular cultural membership that creates multiple-layered identities.
