Storyline

The Bianco and Rossi families of Yonkers have been feuding for years - over pizza! Those who prefer a tangy sauce go to Rossi's; those who like their crust thin and crispy go to Bianco's. When young Angela Rossi, armed with a newly minted associates degree in marketing from FIT, tries to help her father put the Bianco's out of business, pizza détente goes out the window. And when young doodle artist Tony Bianco agrees to help his father steal the secret of the Rossi's sauce to win the neighborhood pizza contest, pizza war - and a little star-crossed loving - follow.

Total waste of celluloid
18 March 2005 | by (Manchester, UK) – See all my reviews

On every level of film-making you can think of, this so-called film didn't rate on any of them.

The plot was so hackneyed and cliché-ridden that you could plot the entire course of the movie in the first two minutes.

The camera-work was truly terrible - all tight head shots and using no visual pizazz whatsoever.

The actors probably did the best they could with stereotyped characters drawn straight out of some computer combo of West Side Story and Romeo and Juliet.

The worst thing about this film? The central motif is that you apparently need love to make a great pizza. This film had no love in it, and for a film that's ostensibly about great pizza to leave you with no desire to eat pizza is one hell of a neat trick.

Avoid this film. At. All. Costs.
