4.0 out of 5 starsGood, Clean, Enjoyable

I've loved Tammy Pesacatelli since the first time I saw her stand-up comedy. It's great to see her in a movie and that she is aging so well (she looks great and appropriate...not fake). With that said, the movie was good, clean, enjoyable movie to watch with just the right balance. Sometimes a movie like this can be too "poo-poo" - this wasn't there was some tension, some quirk, some cliche and some predictability. Still is was worth the watch (Amazon scrambling for productions - has such cramp on Prime Video). This was a welcome relief. There actors were not headliners, yet they did a good job! They were believable and engaging. Just so you know there is NO wild, crazy, sex, drugs, rock-roll, T&A here. So if that's what you're after - skip this. It's somewhere along the lines of Andy Griffith, Friends, Seinfeld and just a tad bit The Wedding Singer. Enjoy the view!

Dave, I remember when we where in an acting class and you told me about a script you wrote and the excitement that you had in having it produced. Now I can see why! Great work all around; fine acting, believable funning touching dialogue and good movement! Definitely sharing this film , so others can enjoy, laugh and pass it forward. Big thumbs up!!

5.0 out of 5 starsBrought back memories of my Italian family

I really enjoyed the film. So many things were familiar - the Italian phrases, pizzelles, cooking meatballs in the kitchen with my mother, family connections, Catholic Church and priest, the rosary, Sepino. Warmed my heart. Cute story. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 starsHeartwarming Humor
Verified purchase
A funny, charming tale centered around the coupling of a sweet, decent widower and a likeable, middle-aged nurse with an agenda. The story quickly unfolds, hooking you in just as fast.

Though this is unquestionably a love story, the deep affection is not solely between Rocco and Lucia. One cannot dismiss Lucia's ultimate deed of selflessness to save her mother. Who cares that she had no desire (or boyfriend, for that matter) to lock herself into the bonds of marriage? Her mom is worth any sacrifice.

Then there is the heartwarming friendship of Rocco and Gino. When Rocco uncovers the motive behind Lucia's proposal, he was devastated. The subsequent lashing out at Gino for his bungling of the engagement ring left his longtime pal in deep distress.

Fortunately, there are more than a few amusing and playful moments sprinkled throughout this film. I was thoroughly entertained and surprisingly, my husband was, too.

I'm glad I watched this movie. It was entertaining the whole way through and kept me laughing. I could really empathize with the characters which kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I recommend this film to all, based on how my family and I laughed throughout the movie.

4.0 out of 5 starsSweet little romance
Verified purchase
It's not Casablanca, but was a delightful evening for my wife and myself. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the acting. The negative reviews were all about the acting. The production of this piece is FIRST RATE! I particularly enjoyed the director's choice to look down on the tables (not too much). I also thought the music choices were consistent with the Italian flavor. It's too bad that the young producer (Daymon Long) seems to not pursue feature films (google him and you will find that he seems to prefer documentaries, though they are excellent!).

Verified purchase
THIS IS SIMPLY A DELIGHTFUL FILM OF AN ITALIAN DENTIST WHO MAKES A DEAL WITH A WOMAN HE LOVES THAT THEY WILL MARRY IF HE
GIVES HER A NICE ENGAGEMENT RING. WHAT HE DOES NOT KNOW IS SHE IS FOLLOWING HER MOTHER’S BARGIN THAT THEN SHE WILL HAVE A HEART OPERATION. ALL THE CHARACTERS ARE GREAT, ESPECIALLY THE PRIEST. ONE THING THOUGH........THE RING GETS LOST.
ENJOY.

I call these types of films vanity films and I love them. The movie was obviously a work of passion. The movie is filled with delightful characters and a good storyline that kept us interested. And the music score was great! We really enjoyed the music. I hope this crew produces another movie soon.
