Movie Reviews

How do you say "utter garbage!" in Italian?
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 01/22/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is so stupid, I almust shouldn't dignify it by reviewing it. I loved seeing Donald Faizon's downstairs and seeing sexy Joey Fatone, period. However, this has a dumb plot with lame jokes and stereotypes galore. Donald Faizon, plays Renato, a baby found by an Italian couple who then move to New York. They tell him, "Well, many Italians have dark skin." Hello! Race is not just about skin color! How many Italians are as dark as we African Americans? If the parents can explain Renato's dark skin, how do they explain his hair texture and full lips? Surely, people all his life would have told him he's Black. Surely, any person of relative intelligence would say, "I look like Blacks and not like Italians. Maybe that means something?" Plus, do you really want to watch a whole movie where the guy from "Scrubs" fakes an Italian-American accent and mannerisms?! I pray that both African-American and Italian-American actors can find better roles than this trash. It boggles the mind that quality scripts can't find directors and producers but mental junk like this gets made. Remember what Chris Rock said about "Boat Trip" during his Oscar standup? The same thing applies here!"
DUMB, BUT DOES HAVE ITS MOMENTS! 2 1/2 STARS!
! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b | TRI STATE AREA | 07/06/2010
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Liking this film depends on just how tolerant of political incorrectness you are and forgiving of such dumb storylines. The film gets a big boost from the actors who in most cases are way better than the likes of this film, but know how to laugh at themselves and just go with it. It's a short little "dumb dumb" of a movie only clocking in at about an hour and fifteen minutes, but I found enough here to keep me chuckling for the most part. I also applaud the political incorrectness, because I'm a little tired of filmmakers walking on eggshells all of the time. If you see it on cable take out your brain and just go with it, its really a pretty funny little movie."
Hysterical
Over-Employed Mom -Karla B. | Cheltenham, MD USA | 02/25/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I caught the end of this movie on cable and just had to buy it because it is HILARIOUS. Politically incorrect in almost every way it could be in terms of race relations, if this doesn't have you laughing out loud, you're a stick in the mud with no sense of humor and it's not for you anyway.

Donald Faison took his acting to another level in this movie. Loved it. It's one you can watch again and again and again."
