Did You Know?

Writer/director Tony Vitale first pitched the story as a sitcom in 1991. When nefarious executives tried to steal his idea, he quickly turned it into a play and, ultimately, the movie. Eventually it did transition to the small-screen as the short-lived series "Some of My Best Friends" (2001).See more »
Factual errors: The closing credits say "Copyright © MCMXVII", which is 1917 rather than 1997 (MCMXCVII).See more »

I Liked It, 22 November 1999
Author: BBD-3 ( from Perry Hall, Maryland

Stereotypes, full of them yes, but behind every stereotype there is a truth or two.... As a person who fits into the two main groups portrayed in this movie and who comes from New York City, I have to say one only need take a stroll through the Village or through the Bronx to see those stereotypes running around!

This movie was good fun, a farce, a case of mistaken identity--the little bits of Italian thrown in made me laugh and think of my own family and how often I heard some of the phrases used in it. Well, I certainly had a friend who was just like Terry and saw plenty of Dakotas running around too.

This little movie holds a mirror up to some who fit the stereotype and says "laugh at yourself" there is humor in life all around us. Note the lack of violence and the theme that the most improbable pair of people may just be able to find that they have something in common. It's not Oscar material--accept it for what it is and have a laugh. Oh yes, Nick Scotti ain't bad to look at either.
