A mentaly challenged man with dreams of being a hero gets his wish in this feel good movie.
12 November 2002 | by (SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS) – See all my reviews

Nunzio is a rarely aired film concerning a twenty something mentaly challenged man. On the surface he appears to be a loon wearing a towel as a cape playing hero. Fortunately for the viewer he turns out to be much more. David Proval in an understated performance shows us the life and first time love in a wonderful fashion. In the end we see a wannabe hero that truly can be. A small film not to be missed.
