Two families once jointly owned a pizzeria in Little Italy in Toronto. The quarrel led to that the girl's parents Nicky opened a restaurant and became fierce competitors with former friends — parents Leo. A few years later Nikki learns in culinary school in the UK, and Leo works in the streets of the native quarter along with a father and grandfather. What well, Nikki returns to Canada starts a romantic Comedy in the spirit of the simple-minded rework of "Romeo and Juliet" beginning "zero" — same dreary and uninspired as and the poster "Little Italy".

Surprising, because it took Donald Petrie, Director of such films as  the"Old grumblers" or"How to get rid of the guy 10 days". Hard to say what current trends in American cinema in the realm of romantic Comedy feel nostalgic boom; rather, it is not even artistic effect, and only the preservation of this scenario. Nikki and Leo gradually moving from the friendship, surviving with childhood, love. Naturally, two lovers souls will have to deal with stupid obstacles; to think about whether they can be together; but also identify the reasons for the feud families. In the plot is little surprise that even a little touching, although for the most part to call this project a clever or even interesting the language is not turns — are so vague and familiar narrative here.

Besides, call Emma Roberts and Hayden Christensen's successful romantic couple difficult. If the first demonstrates his signature enchantment with ease looks confidently at the frame, her colleague never was an actor with a wide emotional range. Despite that Christensen here more eloquent than in the role of Anakin, still a great actor he is not be even a simple romantic Comedy it manages to make some mistakes.

The level of pathology of this film is high enough to enjoy the view and get pleasure from a significant amount of clichés and conventions. The predictability of the genre imposes a huge limit on creative script, making for completing the main story you can feel like an idiot.

Little Italy — this is the home of the chamber of cinema, main bearing in the target audience of the residents of the Little Italy neighbourhood in Toronto. And producer, the actors involved in the film, admitted that it was a love letter to the city and its inhabitants. Because regarded as a big-budget Comedy it not worth it.

Synopsis repeatedly described above, because to highlight it is not will. I can only say that pairs Romeo Juliet here two. And, I would said that one of them inferior to the passions of another.

Genre romantic Comedy how such, on my opinion, has long outlived its usefulness, in the late 90s — the beginning of zero. Perhaps that is why the film generally perceived to be naive and old-fashioned. He others not be shall within the genre.

The locations are authentic, certainly, the residents of Toronto with a pleasure out of the streets and shops, cafe Starbucks. Nice music supporting the mood of the picture.

The cast from your tasks managed. Incredibly hot Italian mom Alyssa Milano with age only scored points in their game. Danny Aiello and Andrea Martin reliable and quite passionate for the age of their characters.

A little awkward a couple looks Roberts-Christensen, but not their fault. Initially seems a strange choice of actors in the difference in the age of almost 10 years on the role of peers. Although, to me personally, this is not much to interfere.

I would not say that she played really this relaxed Charmer. Soon she was pinched and weirdo. scenes Hayden, but could be limited to the scenario — all her character is in love with stronger.

Those who are dissatisfied with the emotion Christensen, I want to remind you that it's first Comedy role, after a lifetime of mental suffering on the screen. Maybe it was just you it so not ready to see? And it with the role of rural macho was done well.

The humor of the film in General is not without stamps vulgarity. However, first, it is the Russian-speaking audience. I watched the original, there is a lot of word games and hints. A second, what Comedy is complete now without stamps tolerastov in the NAT and sexual minorities?

So, in General generally, Little Italy — the film which promote family values and love, the film that you can watch with the whole family for dinner. Such films now came to little.

Little Italy — a simple family movie for single view in the genre of Comedy/romance, the more low-budget and without the humor of this movie is not done.

Actually sometimes I love to watch movies in this format, because these films is absolutely not bend after viewing is a light light positive. Yes 

and the plot of the film is quite simple and banal. Two family, opened his pizzeria, and who moved from Italy Canada, compete for advantage pizza and their children, Leo and Nikki know each other childhood. And again life has given them together to validate their feelings and like first thought between them there is absolutely no no feelings, and it's just a habit of a family friendship with childhood, but it was much more interesting. In simple words, the predictable end of the film, but the film looked very easy and easy.

The main character in performance Emma Roberts (Nikki) Hayden Christensen (Leo) is also pleased, although in their acting job and its egregii best on-screen couple I they are not will be watch they were a pleasure. Also it was nice to see alyssa Milano in small parts.
