Storyline

In Rhode Island, in the Italian-American family Sposato, Danni is going to marry Geoffrey Brancato. Danni lives with her parents Santo and Irena and is the third and 'the good daughter' of her family. Her three sisters come for her wedding: the older Nikki, a successful TV starlet, who works in a TV show very similar to 'Baywatch'. Nikki brings her boy-friend and manager Marty Weinberg to be introduced to her family. Chrissy, who deals with investments in Wall Street; and the rebel younger Toni , who plays in a rock-and- roll band with her lesbian lover Amy Kayne. Together, they have meals in the restaurant of Tom Terranova, the former and first love of Nikki. Many discussions of the Sposato family show wounds not healed, when the characters expose their real feelings. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This movie was absolutely horrible dont waste you time!
10 January 2004 | by brandon-kaplanSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Sarasota film festival last year. it was the opening film. I was excited to see it since it was the opener of the festival but was quite shocked to see how pitiful the storyline was! It was a complete ripoff of My Big Fat Greek Wedding! I am so surprised that such an amatuer filmmaker got to have the opening film!! The jokes were weak, acting was poor, storyling was cliche and boring, characterization was missing, and I left questioning how this film got made...
