Bad
24 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Very very bad. A list of bad things: - The story - The acting - The Film

This film contains probably one of the worst efforts of acting that i have ever seen from Matt LeBlanc. I don't consider him to be a great actor anyway, but his performance in Lookin' Italian can only be described as generic.

The story idea is nothing particularly inventive, a tale of discovery of ones origins and coming to terms with it. While this might work in a film with some cinematographic flair, Lookin' Italian fails to make it the least bit interesting. Couple this with the predictable plot "twists" and you end up with a film that quickly becomes a waste of precious electricity.
