Nice idea but just doesn't make the grade
11 July 2001 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

This film, set in Ireland, but financed from Italy, revolves around an Italian student who comes over to Ireland to stay with an Irish family as part of a student exchange program. He is a rich kid and the family he stays with in Ireland is anything but. He strikes up a relationship (of sorts) with the daughter and decides to run away with her. This brings his father over from Italy who teams up with Brendan Gleeson (who plays the girls father) and off they head to find their lost siblings.

The films many attempts at humor fall on stony ground and the acting is of a very poor standard. The only saving grace is that of Glesson, who even with a weak script can make it work.
