Use the forks, Anakin! Emma Roberts and Hayden Christensen star in the romantic comedy “Little Italy,” playing childhood friends who grow up to fall in love, but it’s complicated by their parents’ rival pizzerias. The all-star cast includes Alyssa Milano, Danny Aiello, and Andrea Martin.
The movie arrives in select theaters and On Demand Friday, September 21.
Here’s the trailer:
Mamma mia, the Italian stereotypes are definitely packed into “Little Italy” like ricotta into manicotti. But sometimes “types” can be served with love — see “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” “Moonstruck” — and at least these aren’t “Jersey Shore” stereotypes.
Check out the poster:
“The director of ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ and ‘Miss Congeniality’ (Donald Petrie) serves up a delicious new comedy topped with passion, playfulness, and pepperoni. Former childhood pals Leo (Hayden Christensen, Star Wars series) and Nikki (Emma Roberts, We’re the Millers) are attracted to each other as adults—but will their feuding parents’ rival pizzerias put a chill on their sizzling romance?”
