| This movie was horrible!!!!!
I couldn't believe that time, energy, film, and money was actually wasted filming this insult to Italians all over the world. The acting was horrendous, the Italian stereotypes were borderline criminal, and the abusive/sexists attitude towards women was over-the top.

I can't figure out the plot, but that is probably because there wasn't one. I can't figure out the entertainment value, but that is probably because there isn't any.

As I watched it, I was tempted to turn it off at several junctures, however, I couldn't because it was like looking at an accident scene on the highway, I knew it was going to be bad, i just couldn't tell how bad!!!! One bright spot, I saw it for free on television, so it cost me nothing but 97 minutes of my life.
