I'm Alicia, and um... I wanna join Gay Helpline because... if I could prevent just *one* gay teen from putting a bullet through his head and make him stand up and shout "I'm gay... *gay*! And if you don't like it, you can all go
fuck yourselves, you twisted motherfuckers!"

This film is about a second generation Italian immigrant having to come to terms with the drastic consequences of coming out of the closet.
This film is unlike any other film I have seen. It is very fast paced, each subplot don't last for more than 1 minute. There is a lot of self narrative. It also shows intersecting events and scenes of relevant characters, which is unusual for a comedy.
The sets are visually rich and appealing, and are always colourful and carefully constructed. The character development is great, and we care about the characters in the film. The script is excellent. The neurotic sister is hilarious. The arguments of the parents are very lively and funny, and are entertaining to watch. The costumes are nice and trendy, but not over the top.
In summary, this film is a lot of fun, very entertaining, humorous, visually appealing, and there is something for everyone! The only gay scene is a half a second kiss, which certainly will not hinder its crossover appeal to the mainstream. This film deserves more recognition than it gets!
