This Aussie comedy is pretty routine. Loaded with the usual stereotypes, it has a few giggles but the end result is a let down. The Aussies have made so many better efforts than this.
A comedy about Life, Love and Lasagna
BIG MAMMA'S BOY follows the story of Rocco (Frank Lotito) as he struggles to choose between the love of his life, Katie (Holly Valance), and his doting, over protective Italian mother (Carmelina Di Gugliemo).
Rocco has it all: a great job in real estate, a hot car and a woman who will do anything for him and loves him unconditionally - his mum. But when he meets the gorgeous Katie, Rocco realises that he needs to make some changes. Enlisting the help of his zany neighbour Mrs. Cotoletta, Rocco attempts to counteract his image as a big mamma's boy, and to discover the key to Katie's heart.
Combining some of Australia's best comedic talent including George Kapiniaris (ACROPOLIS NOW), Maria Venuti (PIZZA) and Costas Kilias (THE CASTLE, THE WOG BOY) with sincere storytelling, BIG MAMMA'S BOY is a light-hearted comedy about life, love...and lasagne.
