I still love it!!
20 April 2006 | by mpackard-4See all my reviews

The plot line is very funny, and right away you know this movie is going to be good. Diane Keaton is perfect in her role, and the concept is kind of like taking a Woody Allen movie and merging it with a Mafioso theme, all in a really clever and funny way. I can definitely watch his movie over and over and find new things to laugh at. Paul Sorvino is also really good, and Natsha Lyonne was in her prime and still on track for a good career for this one. I have a weakness for movies based in New York City, but this one is especially fun because you see good visuals. Strong cast and the movie progresses well. I love quirky comedies and this one is a must see :)
