Storyline

An improbable love, the mob and family non-conformity pave the way to laughter in this character-rich story that explores what happens when these worlds collide, landing us smack in the midst of two girls, one gun, and lasagna. Francesca "Frankie" Del Vecchio is adamant about life. Headstrong and passionate, she loves her family, her band, and her fiancé but disagrees with all of them about one thing: Mob Hit, a TV show that symbolizes the fetishizing of Mafia culture that, to Frankie, obscures all the more important aspects of the Italian-American culture she longs to feed her soul. But Frankie's abhorrence of--and her sister Heather's attraction to--Mob culture remain symbolic; that is, until Frankie opens the trunk of a rental car and finds her world turned upside down. In the days that follow, Frankie and Heather meet two people for whom the Mafia isn't a television show, it's their lives. Nicolette Bellafusco manages wedding bands and also happens to be the sophisticated daughter... Written by Mikki del Monico, Toni D'Antonio, Christian Ford, and Mark Dobies

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover
2 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I've never written a review before so bare with me. I felt the urge to write one today as I feel this movie is heavily underrated. I voted highly as I would like to see the ratings up. Firstly I can see how this movie could be misinterpreted as just another cheesy mafia film. To be honest it kind of is for all the right reasons especially if you're a lady loving lady. Sure this movie isn't for everyone but it is fun and light-hearted.

If you're a woman who likes women. I want you to think of a LGBT themed movie that has a happy, light, funny storyline.

...go on....take your time...

'But I'm A Cheerleader' doesn't count!

...something with a realistic script.

I know I'm struggling to think of one.

That's the point I want to make. We don't have enough movies like this, where we can just sit back and enjoy the laugh without someone dying, breaking up or going through emotional struggle. I feel like this movie ticks all the right boxes. Maybe it is a 10/10 not as a film in general, but in terms of LGBT films.

When I first watched this film I too was quick to judge it just another cheesy mafia film. However, after the numerous times watching it, it is now one of my favourite lesbian movies.

If my rambling hasn't put you off then I urge you to go watch this film!

and remember...

...don't judge a book by its cover (or movie..so to speak)
