Storyline

Frank Gregorio is a successful psychiatrist, loving husband, and doting grandfather to the two children of his eldest daughter, Lana. When the universe conspires to introduce him to karaoke through both a patient's parent issues and his precocious granddaughter's birthday party, Frank rediscovers a long-suppressed dream of becoming a professional singer. While his wife, Angelina, believes he is just practicing to sing at their younger daughter's upcoming wedding, Frank befriends a karaoke aficionado, Lydia, a femme fatale who has other plans for the would-be crooner. Simultaneously the sarcastic and harried Lana grows increasingly neurotic about her post-pregnancy weight and flagging marriage and contemplates solutions in the form of plastic surgery and an affair with a hunky and charismatic police officer. Like father, like daughter? How will this close-knit Italian American family cope with the decisions Frank and Lana make? Written by Anonymous

Bravo for an undiscussed topic, and Linda Fiorentino...
18 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not usually like fun "feel-good" films, unless there is intelligent and thoughtful dialog. This is a fun drama, not exactly a comedy similar to "City Island", but there are surprise performances here, and a relevant story.

Chazz Palmintieri as Connecticut psychiatrist Dr. Gregorio is well-settled but "missing something" as many of us feel after a decade or two, or three of marriage.

Drea De Matteo is also good as his disaffected daughter, raising young kids, feeling neglected in a marriage and wanting the band-aid of plastic surgery, or an affair, which she thinks may make her feel better.

Linda Fiorentino (1994 "The Final Seduction") also has a wonderful cameo and excellent stage-presence in an almost Anita O'Day recreation as a cocktail lounge chanteuse. The soundtrack is also very good. Give this film a chance as it is fun but also well-written, and some very good story points. 10/10.
