I wanted to like this, I really did. It tries to be an 80s rom-com
There was a lot of potential; Alec Baldwin, beautiful scenery, Alessandra Mastronardi one of the most beautiful girls I've seen in a while... but the movie really goes nowhere.
A rich kid is given 5k and then cut off from his allowance. On a lark, he goes to Italy and is immediately robbed. He manages to steal the van the thieves drove unaware that there are some mysterious and important papers in the van. He visits a guy he met along the way and alleged hilarity ensues in what is supposed to be a 1) Coming of Age 2) Fish out of Water 3) Love Story that ends with dumb, illogical antics that seem stolen right out of Crocodile Dundee Part 3. The lead, Robert F. Kennedy III started off well but seemed to lose his bearings during the movie. Then, they added the warring Mafia clans, a jerk-off hit-man, an American girl studying abroad who may or may not like the main guy.... Meh, it gets a little messy. Plus, there is the whole "Was-it-a-dream?!" thing at the end. Really? Really??
As a guy, if a wife/girlfriend forced me to watch this with them, it'd be OK. But not even the superhot Italian girl or Eva Amurri can get me to watch this again. C-.
