A lovelorn urbanite who has spent nearly a decade trying to win back his ex-girlfriend gets involved in a romantic case of mistaken ethnicity in director Jason Todd Ipson's warmhearted relationship comedy.

This lame-brain romantic comedy strives hard for a shambling charm, but is unlikely to prove appealing to even the most undemanding of audiences.
Full of clunky humor, battle-of-the-sexes musings and spicy accordion music, Everybody Wants to Be Italian is relentless -- but not necessarily relentless fun.
Constructed out of tired jokes, vaguely familiar actors and a few forced and predictable situations, it's strictly a harmless place-filler.
The film plays out pretty much exactly as you would expect -- which won't bother some people one iota.
While not being entirely original or clever in its exploration of modern Italian culture, it's a light-hearted film which delivers just enough giggles to keep it upbeat and kind of cute.
It's all a bit offbeat and as a consequence we are more than ready to chuckle and open up our hearts
Instead of making a likeable main character, the filmmakers give us the egotistical, brash, rude and obnoxious character of Jake.
This particular film surely straddles the line between 'romp' and 'zany,' and maybe even deserves that most hallowed of accolades: 'zany romp.'
If you thought the ethnic stereotyping in My Big Fat Greek Wedding was bad, this charmless romantic comedy will drive you to despair.
[Sets] up hackneyed relationships, conflicts and resolutions with such a lack of imagination and subtlety that paying attention to narrative particulars quickly becomes a waste of time.
The film is a reminder why romantic comedies have died off so much in recent years.
Writer-director Jason Todd Ipson's romantic comedy is so awash in tired ethnic clichés that the story drowns.
