Russell Crowe, Heaven's Burning, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding

The theme of "Romeo and Juliet" has been written as a tragedy, as William Shakespeare had done, or as a musical-tragedy as in West Side Story.  It has also been treated as a comedy in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  It has also been treated as a drama in Crowe's, Heaven’s Burning.

So no matter how many times critics downplay this theme simply because it has been done many times before, it has always been a popular theme with audiences. Only those who can’t open up to its theme have a hard time with it.  And this includes the comedic treatment of the father in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  He is Greek and his daughter should only marry someone who is Greek.  This is like having a mother hinting his son throughout his life that he should marry someone blond-haired and blue-eyed.  Or a father telling his daughter she should only marry someone tall and handsome.  Or a sister/brother telling a sibling to marry only someone who wants to have kids or not have kids.  These kinds of characters become caricatures in comedies because they are so one dimensional.  

Despite this, we continue to be drawn to them.  Why?  Because they bring out the idiosyncrasies in us.

Russell Crowe Ebook

"Just wanted to let you know, I read the book.  It's really quite awesome!  You are a great writer and anyone can tell how much you admire Russell Crowe.  You do a great job of painting a "picture" of him from many sides.  Thanks for writing the book for people like me!"  Kay Anderson, Evanston, Illinois, kay@evanstongroup.com.
