Wish this was on DVD/VHS!
19 October 2003 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

I wish this hilarious and romantic movie was on DVD/VHS! I would love to see it again and again, own it for my library. I saw this movie years ago on TV and have never forgotten its wonderfully irreverent view toward romance and the Mafia. Please, please, release this movie on DVD/VHS!
