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. show more
The film plays out pretty much exactly as you would expect - which won't bother some people one iota. show more
So awash in tired ethnic clichés that the story drowns. show more
Great little comedy. The critics are all wrong. Everybody in the Theater was laughing out loud, and I live in a Jewish neighborhood!!!. What a charming movie!!!! Everyone in the cast was perfect!! Welcome back Penny Marshal. We missed you girl. Come back more often! We love you!! Go see it everyone. You will be glad you did!!A third generation Italian, and proud of it!! 5 stars all the way!
Saw this in south jersey during opening eagles game and the theater was filled (granted with a lot of italians) but the movie got a lot of spontaneous laughs from the audience. I found this a cute, refreshing, entertaining movie that moviegoers would appreciate, maybe not outlandish enough for the critics, but quirky and fun. Jablonsky was lead material and endearing as the adorable but clueless jake and the other guys in the fish market were engaging too. The dialogue was naturally funny and clever without trying too hard. Got the impression that the audience thoroughly enjoyed the film.
this movie was alright.i was kinda bored in the beginnning so i feel asleep,but my friend woke me up and when i watched it it looked pretty interesting
