Mambo Italiano

Frequent zoom shots of ranting family members set the tone for this gay sitcom about a closeted young nebbish (Luke Kirby) tiptoeing around his loudly cliched parents (Paul Sorvino and Ginette Reno) in Montreal's Little Italy. They want him to find a nice Italian girl, so naturally there's a lot of shouting at God when they discover their son is sleeping with the local patrolman (Peter Miller). The “Big Fat Wedding” formula dictates a certain amount of ugly-duckling fantasy along with the ethnic scenery chewing, so despite his modest looks Kirby attracts nothing but dreamboats. Steve Gallucio adapted his own play, aided by director Emile Gaudreault. 88 min.
