Movie Info

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. It's been eight years since Jake's girlfriend left him, and despite the fact that she's now married with three children, he refuses to move on. Fed up with their depressive pal's unwillingness to let go of the past, Jake's friends set him up on a blind date with a beautiful Italian woman from Boston's North End. Though Jake is convinced that such a woman would never even consider dating a non-Italian, a quick crash course in how to fake it may prove just the trick to helping him learn to love once again.

Critic Reviews for Everybody Wants to Be Italian

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (10)

A clarification is in order. Nobody wants to be these Italians.

Sep 7, 2011 | Rating: D | Full Review…

This lame-brain romantic comedy strives hard for a shambling charm, but is unlikely to prove appealing to even the most undemanding of audiences.

Sep 8, 2008

A box of cannoli long past its sell-by date.

Top Critic

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.

Sep 5, 2008 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Constructed out of tired jokes, vaguely familiar actors and a few forced and predictable situations, it's strictly a harmless place-filler.

Sep 5, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The film plays out pretty much exactly as you would expect -- which won't bother some people one iota.
