Goofs

In the scene where Gina is in the kitchen and Mr. Cappamezza is telling her about how her parents threw her out, the camera view that is looking from behind her shows her arm in front of her chest (holding the other hand), and the garment she is wearing is off her shoulder just a little bit. But in the next scene where her front is shown her arms are all the way down, and the garment is much further down her arm. See more »

It's so bad, it's painful
30 August 2006 | by raymond-15See all my reviews

This film is readily available as a DVD, but please save your well-earned money. Fortunately for me I was able to borrow the DVD from our local library so it cost me nothing, only my valuable time.

I thought the whole film lacked any professional standard. A local church dramatic society could do as well, may be better.

I liked the idea of a farce built around the story of Shakepeare's Romeo and Juliet with feuding families and their suffering children.

I may be losing my sense of humour. I hope not. I found myself smiling a few times and I cracked a laugh when the boy's down-to=earth Mum put her chewing gum in the antique vase. There were also a few risqué moments when Romeo lost control when kissing Juliet during their stage performance. It's difficult to hide your enthusiasm when wearing tights.

The medium giving advice on affairs of the heart says "Love is all there is...but we need so much more". This film sure is lacking in something, so skip this one, my friend.
