Critic Reviews for Homie Spumoni
A narrow-minded flick that squanders its potential by choosing to trade in so many superficial stereotypes promoting a backwards-thinking definition of what it means to be African-American.
An equal opportunity take-no-prisoners, smooth satirical sendup of the state of race relations in the country right now.
Audience Reviews for Homie Spumoni
This is incredibly cheesy, low-budget and unrealistic... but it's also whimsical and charming and quite often really funny. You can't expect miracles from a film with this premise, but it's definitely cute and entertaining. I only watched it because Joey Fatone is in it, but I'm really glad I did.
Homie Spumoni (regardless of how stupid the name is) winded up being a fairly entertaining and surprisingly funny (at times) low-budget, straight to DVD comedy about an Italian family who takes in an abandoned black baby as their own, then move to America, where the black baby (who winds up being Donald Faison) grows up to embody the Italian culture; even disregarding the black community. As things progress, he interacts with his best friend (Joey Fatone of N'SYNC, whose surprisingly decent in this film) and gets a new jewish girlfriend (the VERY beautiful Jamie-Lynn Sigler of Soprano's fame), but Faison's character finally reunites with his black family, consisting of parents Whoopi Goldberg and Paul Moody (who are both decently funny) and brother Tony Rock (Chris Rock's brother, who has his moments). Now, Faison's character starts to re-learn his black roots while his Italian seems to slowly fade away. The film is fun and features decent direction from Mike Cerrone (more popular for being a common character actor for Farrelly Brothers' films). Some of the jokes do fall flat, and the twists involving race get a little outta control and sappy. Overall, though, very decent, straight-laced (mostly language makes up the R-rating) comedy. I liked it.
Quality of a movie can't be the label here. But I could find plenty of times where the humor of the film made me laugh.
