Great film, very fun and entertaining. Whimsical, smart, unusual, quirky, and funny. Not a lot of so called comedies actually make me laugh anymore, but this one did, quite often. Very well written. Some of the antics in this film are so off the wall, you'll never see them coming! I'm not from New York, and I'm not Italian, but the viewer gets a real sense of community, family, and friends with these characters. You almost feel like you've grown up with this crazy "crew", like they're "those crazy guys" from your neighborhood. Great performance by Carmine Famiglietti as Dino, the deadbeat loser turned hero. And the character Ladonna is an almost silent part, so they needed to cast someone who could convey beauty and innocence, and receive the audience's compassion, without using words. WOW did they find the right actress, in first timer Paola Walker. What a darling beauty! The Mexican soldiers were hilarious, as was the cook. The many great supporting characters help make this film a great comedy. Many people will overlook this film due to it's low budget, and unknown cast, but that is a huge mistake. Others will write it off as silly, and juvenile. Well, sometimes silly is what makes us laugh in this overly serious, painfully normal world. Great film, check it out!
