Natale a Miami was recommended by a friend of mine when I went over to his place along with some other friends, and he insisted that we see it together as it's a very funny comedy.
Before the movie started I wanted to see the IMDb's rating and what other people say about it. I saw the under 4 rating, plus very few votes, I expected a low budget and quality piece of comedy. I also added the fact that it's Italian and I was sure to spend the next hour and so climbing the walls. Well, I wasn't far off concerning the whole movie's value, but since I expected the ANTICHRIST I kinda watched it entirely, which actually means a lot coming from me.
The plot and acting are pretty much as you would expect ( low that is ), the thing that most of the action takes place in Miami and absolutely everybody spoke Italian really put the cherry on top of the cake. Some dialogs were a bit unpredictable, maybe cause of the cultural difference between the Italians and Americans ( as far as movies are concerned ), so the 2-3 unexpected lines made me not sink the movie entirely. Also it's worth mentioning that 3 other friends of mine ( that were there ) found it to be entertaining and they had some good laughs. The whole plot was very predictable on the other hand and there's nothing that would keep you thinking too much about the movie after the credits come up.
Bottom line : the movie is very light, won't kill you if you watch it, and who knows, you might even find it funny on some parts but don't expect Pulp Fiction :) My rate is : 4/10
