Delightful and adorbs retelling of “Romeo and Juliet”
This unrelentingly adorbs retelling of “Romeo and Juliet” imagines Shakespeare’s play as a story of two Italian-American families with competing pizza places.
The Prestolanis and the Montebellos of Verona, N.J. (wink, wink), whose pizza places are inexplicably side by side and separated by a tall, brick wall like in “The Fantasticks,” have hated each other’s guts for centuries.
One family makes a pizza known for its wonderful cheese combination, the other for its delicious sauce.
When a Frenchman (!) comes to town looking to franchise a pizza place for no good reason other than it services the plot, Joe (Romeo) Montebello and Gina (Juliet) Prestolani must overcome their relatives’ feud to save the family businesses and their star-crossed romance, too.
Populated with scenery-chewing character actors famous for portraying bombastic Italians, including Michael Badalucco (best known as lawyer Jimmy Berlutti in TV’s “The Practice”) and perpetually flustered Dan Hedaya (Carla’s husband on “Cheers” and “The Tortellis”), the stupidly titled “Pizza My Heart” is actually quite delightful.
The blend of romance, genuine comedy, and Shakespeare references so subtle they might even get past your high school English teacher really, really works for some crazy reason.
I’m a sap for “Romeo and Juliet” adaptations, whether it’s the ’60s musical “West Side Story,” ’80s grindhouse sleaze “China Girl,” the Jet Li chopsocky actioner “Romeo Must Die” or DTV kiddie fare “Romeo and Juliet: Sealed with a Kiss,” the latter of which tells the story with, not kidding, animated sea lions.
This one’s more like the sea lions one than Abel Ferrara’s grim “China Girl,” in that it foregoes the “tragedy” part of Shakespeare’s tragedy and focuses more on a “love conquers all” theme that would have made the Bard throw the heck up, but is totally befitting of ABC Family, on which “Pizza My Heart” premiered about a decade ago.
And as such, it’s a lovely way to spend an evening with your spouse.
Pizza My Heart
The acting by all cast members was superb. Shiri Appleby is absolutely beautiful. She’s one of those girls next door who you’d love to settle down with and get married to one day. While the plot was quite predictable (possibly a result of it being an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet) i still found myself interested throughout the movie. The writing was fresh and barely cliché. And by the end of the movie i did find myself with the strangest craving for good pizza (though it is kinda hard to find the authentic stuff here in Hawaii). All in all, definitely a recommended movie if you’re into the whole romantic comedy thing.
