If you like your homosexuals flaming and your Italians stupid, Kiss Me, Guido is the movie for you. Writer-director Tony Vitale's feature film debut is the well-intentioned yarn of aspiring actor, pizzeria worker Frankie (Nick Scotti), who needs a place to stay. He sees a newspaper ad for a GWM in need of a roommate, and mistakenly thinks it means Guy With Money. The GWM is Warren (Anthony Barrile), an actor who can't pay his bills now that his writer boyfriend is out of the picture. The movie begins with a series of misunderstandings as Frankie and Warren overcome their own prejudices on the road to friendship. While both the gays and Italians are awfully stereotyped (although Warren's mega-queen pal Terry, played by Craig Chester, is entertaining enough) and Vitale uses a polo mallet to get his point across, Kiss Me, Guido, with its abundance of funny one-liners, isn't a total miss.

DVD Details: A Paramount release, Kiss Me, Guido sports a nice anamorphic transfer with accurate flesh tones and little artifacting. There is a little softness here and there, but overall, given its low-budget origins, the picture looks good. With your choice of Dolby Digital or Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound, the audio is equally good, although the soundtrack consists primarily of dialogue and your speakers won't get much of a workout. It is close-captioned, as well, and, typical of Paramount releases, the captions pop up when you listen to the audio commentary. In this case, it is writer-director Vitale doing the talking. His anecdotes are interesting, and make the track worth listening to. The $29.99 price is hard to justify, but genre fans ought to rent Kiss Me, Guido.
