A clarification is in order. Nobody wants to be these Italians.
This lame-brain romantic comedy strives hard for a shambling charm, but is unlikely to prove appealing to even the most undemanding of audiences.
A box of cannoli long past its sell-by date.
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.'
A dreadful romantic comedy with totally unappealing characters.
If you thought the ethnic stereotyping in My Big Fat Greek Wedding was bad, this charmless romantic comedy will drive you to despair.
