Going back home can be hard, particularly when you come from a traditional Italian family, and especially when the girlfriend you bring back is not Italian. But the roof caves in when she's African American. This is the problem that Anthony faces when he brings Alissa from Los Angeles to his boyhood home of Providence, Rhode Island to attend his grandfather's funeral.Written by

Loved the local scenes and Victoria Rowell is a favorite. Some silly stuff but that made it funny. Very much like the true families of home. Live in NC now and Mom and I enjoyed every minute. The story is like Guess who's coming to Dinner and the native scenes of Camille's and D'Angelo's bring back fond memories of great food and fun. The movie is 11 years old but I had never heard of it before. Watched it on Encore on directv and loved it. I am sending links to friends in RI to look for it so they can enjoy the silliness. I would recommend it to anyone in the new england area familiar with Providence as well as anyone who enjoys mixed family situations. Please check it out and if you can travel to RI please go to Camille's for dinner - it's the best in the city.
