Written by Nia Vardalos, who wrote the hit rom-com My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002).

My Life in Ruins (Driving Aphordite in the UK) has 9% on RT and abysmal reviews. According to Wikipedia, the script was originally written by Mike Reiss (The Simpsons), but was rewritten by Vardalos. I haven't watched it yet, but the trailer is painful - they could barely find a joke in the film to include. Vardalos seems bored in it. It actually has a solid cast including Richard Dreyfuss and Rachel Dratch. 

It looks like another example of a movie that tries to recreate the success of a previous film with the same writer, producers, etc. but the result is so sad and limp. Has anyone seen it?

Dreyfuss should have stayed retired after Poseidon. It's kind of understandable to see how this movie wasnt able to achieve the same level of success as My Big Fat Greek Wedding, instead of writing her material from scratch it looks like she punched up a script based on someone else's experiences.
