Quotes

Sal Macelli: What's this?
Gilly: It's a - a toaster.
Sal Macelli: It's a Toast-R-Oven. Whoa. Hey, it's a nice one. A lot of buttons. Hit this button, pops open. You could put anything in here. A slice of pizza; pastry. You pop it in, comes out. Crust is crisp. Microwave don't do that. You ever tried cooking calzone in a microwave? Comes out like a limp dick.

Nothing Like Some Good 'Italian Food!'
5 June 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

I've always found this a "guilty pleasure," an extremely entertaining profane-gross-funny film about a female vampire who likes "Italian food," meaning she likes to kill members of the Mafia!!

I am a bit partial in favor of this movie, anyway, because I am fan of Anne Parillaud. She starred in two of my favorite films: Map Of The Human Heart and Frankie Starlight. To me, she's always great to look at listen to, especially with a comedy here. This is about as good as she's ever looked. I also enjoyed her narration. Also, with director John Landis, you almost always get a very entertaining movie.

The special effects in here are fun to watch and the general off-the-wall humor is great. If you appreciate dark humor, you'll like this movie. The filmmakers also did not go overlong on the action scenes. The film is almost a put-on about vampire movies.

The negatives are too much profanity, too much for a comedy. It sometimes gets ridiculous. Robert Loggia plays most of the profane characters I've ever heard on film, yet is very funny at times. The gore is overdone in parts, too, but nowadays - even watching television (i.e. CSI) - we're used to that now. My other complaint is why this DVD is not on widescreen. Why is it only offered in pan-and-scan?

If you don't mind blood, guts and foul language, this is a hilarious film.
