Georgia (Nia Vardalos) feels like her life is in ruins after she moves to Greece to rediscover her roots and loses her job as a professor of ancient history. Forced to take on a gig as a tour guide, the depressed woman soon learns more about herself than Greek history, thanks to some unlikely friends (Richard Dreyfuss, Rachel Dratch and Alexis Georgoulis).

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in My Life in Ruins...

While this film is most likely to appeal to the over thirty crowd, anyone that does hitch a ride with this tour guide who "hasn’t had sex in forever," will catch more than a few glimpses of naked art, sexual jokes, crass terms and innuendoes. Sexual activity occurs between married and unmarried couples, although only some kissing is shown. A sexual threesome is implied. A straight man inadvertently attracts some homosexual attention. Women are seen in revealing clothing, underwear and bathing suits. A man suggests a woman use sexual favors to pay a debt. A character constantly shoplifts, and suffers no consequences for this illegal activity. Language includes the use of many mild and a few moderate profanities, along with some terms of Christian deity. An angry man tackles another, knocking him into a pool. After being involved in a fistfight, a man sports a bleeding lip. A motor vehicle accident is depicted: no injuries result. Alcoholic beverages are frequently consumed and some characters become slightly inebriated. A man smokes a cigar. Humor is derived from cultural stereotypes.
