Trivia

The title of the movie caused a legal conflict. There was already a pizzeria in Santa Cruz, CA trademarked "Pizza My Heart". The producers tried "Pizza My Heart, The Movie" That was already trademarked as well. This same pizzeria delivered rental videos with their pizzas. Apparently the conflict was resolved. See more »

A slice of perfection!
24 July 2005 | by Tenchi64589See all my reviews

I'm a sucker for these types of movies; so to me, this modern take on Romeo and Juliet was an absolute joy to watch.

It's not only a perfect romantic movie, but there are some elements of comedy within it. (Take for instance, the mice being released in the Montebello's restaurant.) The characters themselves were very believable... I even started to FEEL the resentment of the two families! My only regret has to do with the people that didn't watch this... I say to them one of two things: for the uncultured, grow up; and to the ones that didn't get it, stop over-analyzing everything and enjoy the movie.

10/10
