“…snappy and hilarious tale filled with wonderful characters and situations.”
• G. Allen Johnson, SF Chronicle

“Zesty fun comedy!”
• Variety

“Warm hearted…Lovingly shot… a dryly funny Adrienne Barbeau…”
• Dana Stevens, NY Times

“The film offers amusing cultural critics and Mike Pagano is an exciting, emotionally accessible presence, crafting a character who is more complicated than he seems. Barbeau combines good-humored wisdom with well-seasoned beauty.”
• Carla Meyer, Sacramento Bee

“Adrienne Barbeau invests the role of Anthony’s aunt with a worldly-wise sensuality that suggests a long-lost cousin of Tony Soprano.”
• Chuck Wilson, LA Weekly

“…endearing, with good ensemble scenes and strong acting…”
• Melissa Levine, SF Weekly

“…warm hearted comedy with Adrienne Barbeau bringing busty glamour even to the role of a family matron…”
• LA City Beat

“…the goofy high jinks are ideas about what it takes to hold a family together and they are amusing actors who know their Italian types and bring them to the screen with love, Italian style.”
• Deborah Hornblow, Hartford Courant

“A tribute to the contemporary Italian family this light hearted comedy touches upon the boisterous and emotionally turbulent Italian family while simultaneously dealing with some weighty issues.”
• L’Italo-Americano

“Dodging the goombahs and goofballs are the leads, who bring a measure of sanity to the proceedings. Rowell endows her Sidney Poitier role with dignity…”
• Kent Williams, Madison State Times
