VERY FunnyBy Louis Hayward from MK, UK , 06 Aug 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Don't let the gay subject matter put you off - this isn't a gay film full of in-joke about being gay as much as it is about Italian families.
Nearly every line has a punch, and Paul Sorvino is excellent as the Italian macho man trying to come to terms with his sons outing.
Good supporting cast, and an ending that doesn't feel obliged to give you what you expect - this is good Saturday night entertainment - especially if you know any 'Italiano's'.

Funny...but ending a bit rushedBy a customer , 12 Nov 2011I laughed my a** off the whole time. This is really funny,plus their italian accents just makes it even funnier.
I felt the ending was a bit rushed though..all of a sudden,things seemed to have settled down..but oh well. STILL NICE MOVIE THOUGH...definitely get this one.
Little GemBy Nicknacknoodle (24 reviews) from Edinburgh , 20 Oct 2011Like most of the other reviewers, I loved this.
Sweet, funny, well acted and a good story.
Rent this, you won't be disapointed.
Sweet and pleasant enough!By a customer , 11 May 2011Pleasantly fun. The main boy is hot. Just a sweet movie. Acting was okay, and i mean just okay. Coming out to an Italian family seems such a fiasco.....it was a laugh to be honest.
Sweet gay lovestoryBy a customer from London , 24 Mar 2011Sweet story, a few stereotypes..but then it is a comedy. Great colourisation in some scenes..grab a bottle of wine and some chocs,,
Not Shakespeare But Enjoyable Just The SameBy SammyWoof (31 reviews) from Southampton , 07 Aug 2010I watched this straight after L.I.E which was a bit heavy, so maybe that's why this seemed to be so light and uplifting. It wasn't packed to the rafters funny with gags but I did find myself chuckling away as the movie progressed. I'm sure a million Italian family's are saying that's us and another million are saying no it's not. Either way this was enjoyable and the lead male Luke Kirby was nice to look at (Lovely Smile and Teeth lol) This one I would and will at some point rent again.
