Audience Reviews for Kiss Me, Guido


I did not enjoy this movie at all, the film makes me feel unease. An independent movie can use some better camera work than this one. The whole film is formulaic and ridiculous, too melodramatic for me. I don't think I laughed during the film at all, it's so dull... The acting was really bad as well, except for De Sando who did a good job at being a stereotypical guido. Nick Scotti is a real eye candy however, but that's the only perk of watching this film. Another con is that the film seems to drag on and on, aiming at no where. Plus the excessive swearing was not pleasing at all.

This minor indie farce plays gay and Italian-American stereotypical characters, resulting in a pleasant feel-good movie but no more.


Pretty funny, and its focus isn't completely on the gay relationship. Plus, it's got Paul Sorvino :)
