Did You Know?


In the scene where Gina is in the kitchen and Mr. Cappamezza is telling her about how her parents threw her out, the camera view that is looking from behind her shows her arm in front of her chest (holding the other hand), and the garment she is wearing is off her shoulder just a little bit. But in the next scene where her front is shown her arms are all the way down, and the garment is much further down her arm. See more »

I Loved it!
17 January 2002 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

I, too, stumbled upon this movie late one night on cable, and woke my husband up laughing and punching him in the ribs!

Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna are funny, funny people (loved him in "Blame It On Rio") Lainie Kazan was perfect as his wife, and Paul Sorvino is just a GREAT actor. Didn't realize till later that this must also have been one of Angelina Jolie's first roles.

As a participant/guest/victim of many Italian wedding extravaganzas, I loved it. A New Yawk version of "Blazing Saddles".

Four out of five stars from me!
