A young couple must navigate a blossoming romance, amidst a war between their families' competing pizza restaurants. Little Italy wastes completely both Emma Roberts and Hayden Christensen who despite their alright perfomances and nice chemistry the movie completely fails on the Italian Culture as someone else also said but also the comedy was simply not that funny? And Hayden although not that bad? at times felt or looked kinda tired and it was pretty weird to be honest here. Especially Emma truly deserves way more than movies like this here. (4/10)

Two households, each bereft of dignity,At College-Bathurst, where we lay our scene,With "paisano" stereotyped ethnicitiesAnd more clichés than should be on big screens.From forth the pizza shops of these two foesA pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life.I'm kidding! None dies or even comes to blowsThough wish it otherwise I'll bet you might.
Hayden Christensen and Emma Roberts are the unlucky, not-very-Italian actors saddled with performing in this modern-day Romeo and Juliet, set in Toronto's Little Italy and scrubbed clean of any poisonings, sword fights or deadly misunderstandings. (On the plus side, no gnomes!)
In spite of a 10-year age gap between the actors, we're meant to believe Leo and Nikki were childhood buddies growing up in neighbouring pizza shops, one run by Vince (Gary Basaraba), the other by Sal (Adam Ferrara). The two pie-stros were once best friends themselves, but had a falling out years ago; the reason is revealed at the end of the film and is no more worth the 100-minute wait than a delivered pizza would be.
Anyway, cut to the present day, when the kids are now in love but just don't know it yet. Nikki has just returned from England, where she's an up-and-coming chef. Leo continues to work in his dad's pizzeria, and moonlights at Luigi's bar, where the big joke is that Luigi (Andrew Phung) is actually Chinese.
Oh, and speaking of ethnic insensitivity, both pizza shops have resident Indian waitpersons (Vas Saranga, Amrit Kaur) who hurl insults at each other and - is this a spoiler? I'm going to say no - eventually fall for each other as well. But my favourite bit of colour-blind, accent-deaf casting had to be Andrea Martin as Nikki's granny, who delivers all her lines while staring into the distance as though waiting for a paycheque. Between this and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, she's become the go-to older relative of whatever nationality you need.
Little Italy was directed by Donald Petrie - Mystic Pizza; I know! - from a script by Steve Galluccio (Mambo Italiano) and Vinay Virmani (Dr. Cabbie). William Shakespeare's name is not in the credits, although the filmmakers were kind enough to include the rarely used scene from Act IV where Romeo chases Juliet through an airport. Otherwise, it's a pained mish-mash of rom-com clichés, including old people being horny and making Beyoncé references.
The leads have a soup?on of chemistry, most of its predicated on Roberts' squeaky laugh and Christensen's ability to be gentlemanly while drunk. But it's not enough to recommend this tired outing. I'd advise you to walk pasta theatre that's showing it.
This story is poorly written. The characters are not compelling and the story line is weakly told. I'm all for a predictable romance, but this is just like a stale doughnut. It could have been good but just lacks flavor and needs to be tossed out.Writers out there watch some of the old black and white films to learn how to tell a story...and maybe you will see all the time you used with stupid sexual innuendos could have been better served by developing your story line.
