Big-hearted if formulaic comedy about a disconnected suburban family (headed by Joe Mantegna and Anne Archer) brought together by an elderly, eccentric relative visiting from Italy -- Uncle Nino (Pierrino Mascarino) -- who, through his love of food, flowers and music instills in his American kin Old World values and a deeper appreciation for life's simple pleasures. Directed by Bob Shallcross, the heartwarmer imparts a breezy, feel-good message about family and forgiveness which makes it easy to applaud in spite of its overly sentimental tone and cliche-laden script. Some mild swearing, a scene of vandalism and a few instances of teen smoking. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
