A large Italian American Family runs a firework business and when a cousin comes to America to help he falls in Love and all hell breaks loose. Funny and sweet for the whole family.

I really liked the movie. It was funny and warm with a lot of heart. Giancarlo Giannini, Stanley Tucci and Bridget Fonda as well as the supporting cast were terrific. A great unexpected ending, beautifully shot and a feel good movie. Definitely recommend it. I give it a 10!
