Critic Reviews for It Started in Naples

All Critics (5)

There's no chemistry between Gable, who's twice as old than love interest Sophia Loren in this lukewarm, utterly predictable culture clash comedy.

April 24, 2012 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's a quaint and pretty old movie, to be sure, but it's also more than a little boring.

August 16, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review… aimless, thoroughly predictable waste of time masquerading as a romantic comedy.

August 3, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

a fossil of a bygone age when comedies didn't require scatalogical humor, and romances didn't require any basis in logic
