I wouldn't watch Scusa Ma Ti Chiamo Amore if you were looking for a profound, deep love story that makes you reflect more on the nature of love and relationships. Michela and Raoul are cute together, but the chemistry was lacking between them. Or perhaps it was the character Raoul played (Alex), who didn't seem very passionate towards her.
With that said though, I found it worthy to watch just for the pleasure of seeing gorgeous Raoul Bova. I discovered Scusa Ma Ti Chiamo Amore after developing an interest in him from Under the Tuscan Sun. I'll admit I'm a sucker for the stereotypical charming romantic Italian man that Raoul portrayed in that movie.
After watching Scusa, however, I felt he was so much better in that because the portrayal was more realistic -- he was more a regular endearing Italian, than the stereotypical one that you see in Hollywood-type movies that only focuses on the charming, flowery, romantic side. For that reason alone, I really liked and appreciated the movie.
