Movie Info

The director of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Miss Congeniality serves up a delicious new comedy topped with passion, playfulness, and pepperoni. Former childhood pals Leo (Hayden Christensen, Star Wars series) and Nikki (Emma Roberts, We're the Millers) are attracted to each other as adults-but will their feuding parents' rival pizzerias put a chill on their sizzling romance? The tasty all-star cast also includes Alyssa Milano ("Charmed"), with Danny Aiello (Do The Right Thing), and Andrea Martin (My Big Fat Greek Wedding).

My favorite groaner moment takes place during a backyard barbecue, where everyone drinks Peroni beer and makes sure the labels face the camera.

September 25, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A movie whose idea of both romance and comedy is permanently stuck in 1985, like a moldy slice of gabagool, oh marone!

The movie is not without charms, thanks to a host of fine supporting performances and some decent chemistry between the two romantic leads.

August 23, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

To say this movie is as cheesy as the pizza that appears in practically every frame of it is something of a compliment. That's because cheese is awesome and cheesy pizza is doubly awesome. This film is not.

... reheats lazy stereotypes while combining narrative ingredients that are more stale than fresh.

December 27, 2019 | Full Review…

[Little Italy's] sitcomy performances, reductive themes, and problematic humour, are 10-years too late.

Audience Reviews for Little Italy

½

Finally, what we all wanted, a return to the screen for Hayden Christensen who must have spent most of the millions he made off of his last Skywalker excursion. But it's hard to turn down a script that has you in a love scene with Emma Roberts. It's-a nice-a pizza pie picture that rivals Gotti for the most hyperbolic out of touch depiction of New York Italian stereotypes while utilizing all the subtleties of a high school stage production. A cavalcade of has-beens including Alyssa Milano, Jane Seymour, and Christensen give us this bizarrely safe take on an R movie. Schmaltzy and cartoony and beyond hackneyed, it approaches every convention of romantic comedies and says, "hey, let's do that again". Imagine Tampopo if it were a shitty rom-com about Canadian pizzerias, and you will get a taste of how half-baked Little Italy is.
