CRITICS

"…low-budget comedy about three chips off the old Jersey block trying to bond with their retro-macho Italian-American dads has its heart in the right place --- but everything else is trite, broad, schmaltzy and/or second-hand. …Predictable… pic never rises above sitcom-style yuks and pat sentiment. " Dennis Harvey, Variety, 4/30/ - 5/6/2001, pg. 34.
