‘Mambo Italiano’ is a fun movie but with some thoughtful issues thrown in for good measure. The acting is very good, if a little larger-than-life in good Italian style, and the script and directing are slick, funny, poignant at times, and very pacey.
Long winded, maybe I just wasn't in the mood to watch it. Not captivating.
This is light-weight fun... yeah predictable but the acting is good
I know I'm reviewing this a while after the event, but I really can't recall much about it. It can't have been that bad though, so I suppose it was okay.
A great film for anyone still in the closet. I enjoyed it immensely, great acting, good plot
Pretty ordinary and stereotypical , obvious Hollywood trash
Funny movie but did not see the end because something went wrong with the tape
i have to say it was okay, although i wouldn't rush out to watch it agian.
A likeable enough movie, easy to watch and funny - it attempts to prove a point about being true to yourself and does a good job in a fairly soft way. Good cast, the Italian parents are especially good in their roles, as is the sister. This is a movie for an undemanding night with some pop corn.
This is a simple but hilarious film with a very relevant and poignant message. Well worth a viewing!
If you're ethnic, you will relate, otherwise, it won't have any meaning to you.
Hilarious, and scarily reminiscent of my own family, which is as Anglo-Saxon as they come.
It was okay, for people with italian background. Expected to be better but.
One movie i could watch again! Was funny feel good film. The acting was very good, better than expected!
Funnier than other comedies I've seen, at least with this one the actors can act.
It's like Brokeback Mountain before the marriages but with the acknowlegement of their homosexuality.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film-it was even better than My big fat Greek Wedding
This was OK, not fantastic or awful.
A very funny movie and true to life.
Kind of amazed by the other reviews. I thought this was absolutely brilliant. Watched it many times and will no doubt watch it again.
Definitely worth watching! Hilarious in parts, some of the plot reminded me a little of the "Wedding Banquet". Excellent laugh therapy!
Had been told this was like My Big Fat Greek Wedding only Italian - rubbish. Much more thought provoking and deeper that that piece of fluff. Well worth watching
I thought it was intereting and funny to watch. Definitely worth seeing at least once.
All I have to say / can say about this movie is don't bother.
This movie depicks how Italians are really like it's true to life
Just a bunch of stereotypes. Not much fun
A rather superficvial albeit enjoyable movie, focusiing on the traditional culture of Italy vs the almost ignored tradition of gay relationships - What Gay Italians? No way.
Well, though I say that this film may be worth watching, you may find other films take priority.
Hilarious but yet very real - applicable to gay men from traditional backgrounds
Don't waste your money, there are much better films of this genre around. This movie - like its characters - can't decide if it is a commedy or serious film but rather a confusing mish mash. What a snoozer to boot!!
Enjoyable light hearted look at family issues - very funny in parts.
I got about 15 minutes through this movie before I decided I just couldn't waste any more of my time persevering with it!
The best bits were what you saw in the shorts.
