Hey yo, Renato!
27 June 2008 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Renato, an obviously black youth, has been brought up by his adoptive parents as totally Italian-American. The young man can even speak his parents' language and works in his father deli. Little does he know his world is coming to a complete stop when his picture appears in a trade magazine. So far, his mentality is totally Italian; he even dislikes Afro-Americans!

Renato, who has fallen in love with a Jewish nurse, doesn't know what hit him when his real parents, Thelma and George, come for him and the whole thing is revealed to him. The young man suddenly is someone he used to dislike when he was Italian! Renato becomes Leroy, with an instant black family that is just the same as his adoptive one, but with a different color and cuisine.

This is a silly comedy that makes fun of different ethnic groups. Mike Cerrone, who co-wrote and directed, gives us a story that is best seen with a group of friends to laugh silly at the situations presented in the film. None of the material is meant to be offensive. Donald Faison is good as Renato. Whoopi Goldberg appears as the black mother who comes forward to claim him. Jamie Lee Sigler is the object of Renato/Leroy's affections.
