With an entire cast of characters who are not the most likable, and romances that are far from believable, this movie leaves much to be desired.

The comic possibilities of Mambo Italiano are mind-boggling. The reality is less so.

Every time Mambo Italiano seems headed for a plunge into the ethnic cartoon swamp, a refreshingly, unexpected element throws up a roadblock and keeps the movie on solid emotional ground.

Seems set on making fun of Italians in the most heavy-handed manner possible.

The problem with screenwriter and director mile Gaudreault's effort is that he turns his Canadian-Italian family into a cartoon.

The film has a few laughs, but none of the sweetness of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Where are the GoodFellas when we really need them?

Mama treats her son like a baby, even though he's almost 30! Angelo's family is gossipy! Straights don't understand gay culture! Da-DUM. Sheesh.

There are some startlingly powerful scenes as characters grapple with expectations and feelings for each other. But the film is annoying in its cheap attempts to get a laugh.

On the plus side, just about every scene in the film features some really eye-catching print wallpaper. I think it's important to end a review on a positive note, don't you?

You actually come to like these people.

The script is inane, and though Ferri has some funny moments, the acting is annoying or hopelessly bland.
October 22, 2003
A half-hour sitcom stretched into an unfathomable 90 minutes of played-out ethnic caricatures that should land the entire cast a lifelong ban from Italian pride parades.
October 20, 2003
It's awful.

The movie's vision of Italian life isn't that far away from that of an Olive Garden commercial.
