Mambo Italiano

Mambo Italiano ★★ 2003 (R)

Broad, ethnic romantic comedy that could be titled “My Big Gay Italian/Canadian Wedding.” Kirby plays Angelo Barberini, a 30-year-old nice Italian boy still living with his parents in Montreal's version of Little Italy when he falls for childhood bully Nino (Miller), now a cop and secretly also gay. The two begin a clandestine relationship and move in together while both families unsuccessfully begin a whirlwind of lastditch matchmaking activities. A pleasant turn by lead Kirby highlights this goodnatured yet technically simple comedy where most of the performances, and accents, are uneven. 99m/C VHS, DVD . CA Luke Kirby, Ginette Reno, Paul Sorvino, Claudia Ferri, Peter Miller, Mary Walsh, Sophie Lorain, Tim Post, Lisa Bronwyn Moore; D: Emile Gaudreault; W: Emile Gaudreault, Steve Galluccio; C: Serge Ladouceur.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
