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 »

Great Cast! Weak Script!
1 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love the cast of this film which reads like a great party. Real-life couple Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna adapts Romeo and Juliet to contemporary Italian families living on City Island in the Bronx. They filmed this film mostly on location. It's worth noting that Angelina Jolie makes her debut as well. Taylor plays a psychic while Bologna plays the Rosario's father who runs a wedding hall on the island. His wife is played by the wonderful Lainie Kazan who seeks spiritual assistance with Mona played by Taylor. Joy Behar also has a small role in this film as one of the Italian wives and mothers. The movie is set around July 4 where the local play is Romeo and Juliet. A mishap causes the original Juliet to lose the role. Then comes Jolie's Regina into the role. Regina and Rosario fall in love as quickly as Romeo and Juliet but it doesn't end badly. Paul Sorvino and Barbara Carrera play Regina's parents who also own a wedding hall.
