When bad editing happens to good movies on TV

Posted on

Bfgw_lEnough time has passed that I can watch My Big Fat Greek Wedding again, and actually enjoy it—which is what I was doing this weekend until TBS cut short the scene where Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett) are sitting on the floor of the travel agency. It’s a romantic comedy, which means you don’t tamper with the part where the guy asks the girl out on their first date. (The scene ended with Ian’s mispronunciation of Toula’s last name. Awkward—as opposed to awkward yet endearing, like the original cut.)  Am I wrong? What other edits-for-time have annoyed you lately?
