    Spaghetti to the max!!! It's like watching a Italian soap opera... Nothing really ground breaking happened in the film

    Mambo Italiano is the story of an Italian immigrant coming out to his old school Italian family. There are some really hysterical lines in this movie, but in general I found the whole thing to have been done. Putting an Italian twist on it, was in theory a good idea, but the whole film just comes across as cliché. The gay stereotypes are outdated and the other F word is thrown around way too much. If you're looking for an original "gay" comedy, watch Sascha Baron Cohen's Bruno, that was a great movie. Mambo Italiano is just a fast moving, sexist nightmare, with the occasional great one liner.
