"The 2007 answer to 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' seems to have come in the shoddy package of 'Everybody Wants to Be Italian', a long and painful 'romantic comedy'.(Just saying that feels like I'm lying in it's favor) Really, there's nothing funny about it, or in that case romantic either.

Jake Bianski, played by Jay Jablonski(so creative with the character naming) is an entirely unlikeable bozo, who runs a fish market with the help of all his much older(but still just as idiotic) Italian friends.
Jake is under the strange illusion that he's still involved with his ex-girlfriend Isabella(Marisa Petroro) although she's married with three children, and completely uninterested. Jake becomes an all out fool every year on their old anniversary, parading around the city purchasing a new suit, ring, flowers(apparently he couldn't splurge for the brain instead) and attempts to woo his soul mate once more.

Then along comes Marisa(Cerina Vincent) a beautiful veterinarian, whom Jake's Tweedledee & Tweedledum-esque friends Steve(John Kapelos) and Gianluca(John Enos III) find and persuade into meeting their single(they forgot to mention psychotic) friend.

Somehow Jake and Marisa begin to nurture a friendship, though Jake insists he still has a girlfriend, therefore they cannot be more.

Of course Jake eventually finds out he really does love Marisa and follows her to the ends of the earth(or in this case, just Italy) to involve her in his schizophrenic mind, and propose to her.(Forget trying a relationship, you bag-o-crazy)

The film drags along, so very slowly and all you do is wait and pray for some sort of redemption that never comes.

If I didn't already, I'm sure I don't want to be Italian now.
Great Movie

"If you are looking for a funny and romantic movie...this is your choice. With a little bit of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" theme in the "culture" department. You will enjoy this film from begining to the end."

"I am so glad that I found this movie. It is very cleverly written romantic comedy that had me laughing for two hours. This is as good of a movie as I have seen in a long time. Highly recommended to anyone who watches movies."
