A Wholesome Family Film
D. Hupp | Woodbridge, VA United States | 04/14/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"A charming family film -- better suited for teens than younger children. It seems more like a TV-movie to me, although it's not. While I enjoyed its wholesome family emphasis, the script seemed a bit too contrived for me. I think, though, that most family film fans will enjoy this one.

Mascarino was endearing as Uncle Nino Micelli who travels from Italy to visit his nephew Robert (Joe Mantegna), a workaholic executive who lives in suburban Chicago. The purpose of Uncle Nino's visit is revealed late in the story and prompts Robert to re-evaluate his priorities. Young Gina Mantegna (Joe Mantegna's real-life daughter) makes her film debut here and shows promise as an upcoming young talent in her role as the young daughter of the Micelli family.

While much of the story is predictable, the acting by the main characters compensates for this shortcoming. My favorite scene is the Carps' debut in the high school "battle" -- the group's performance seemed convincing & very upbeat.

The film has its happy and sad moments, but, as is typical of movies of this genre, the wholesome nature of the film is the main reason to see it."
Uncle Nino ROCKS!

"This is a beautifully made family film. Joe Mantegna and Ann Archer are just spectacular in their roles as a loving married couple trying to achieve the American dream lifestyle for themselves as well as their 2 teenage children. Uncle Nino's visit from Italy instills the love and warmth of european old world family values through tenderness, love and music, thus reconnecting the family. The well scored and orchestrated music compliments the gorgeous film work. Highly recommended for family members of all ages to watch and enjoy together. Sit back, relax and enjoy every element of this movie."
Great Family Movie

"We have been waiting for Uncle Nino to be released on DVD since we saw it at the movies. We had told our whole family about it and promised our grandson, who was in a high school band at the time, that we would purchase it for him. We tried to find out about the release for a very long time, but to no avail. We were so thrilled when we saw it was available on Amazon and immediately ordered two copies. It is a very sweet and heartwarming story and all of the actors brought it to life. Our grandson is now in college, but we will be watching it with him very soon."
