A TV Movie-Quality Film, As Predictable As They Come
22 May 2003 | by (Ashland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

THIS film racked up a 7.3? No way, IMDB voters! The film is a mess from start to finish. Baio and his female co-star's supposedly "passionate" acting are wooden, cold, and utterly unmoving--as if they'd lose their salaries if they displayed a true emotion. The cinematography is worse than film school quality, with chopped heads and too-close closeups in full abundance. "Bread" (stupid title, BTW) is grossly manipulative, tugging as hard as a 2-year-old on your heartstrings. Yet for all its designs on making me cry, I didn't come anywhere near it, and only derived one mild chuckle out of the whole supposed-to-be-amusing affair. The characters are incredibly stereotyped Italian-Americans, complete with speeches about the "Old Country,"--a cheap ripoff of Moonstruck or any other ethnic comedy you've seen lately. The gruff Italian male with the heart of gold, his doting wife who has an intuitive understanding of life sputtered through broken English, the iconoclastic daughter "who don't need no husband" and is whispered to be--gasp!--bisexual. And the guy who is a baker--gee, could we borrow from Nic Cage's role in Moonstruck any more?

Save your money--$7.50 will buy you plenty of biscotti and Gallo burgundy for an evening at home. Movies made with this degree of stereotype and cliche deserve to be boycotted.
