Overview

City Island

A dysfunctional family living on a picturesque island in the Bronx spares no expense in avoiding the truth about their messed-up lives in writer/director Raymond de Felitta's dark family comedy. The family patriarch, Vince (Andy Garcia) is a prison guard who is secretly plotting a new career as an actor. Meanwhile, as Vince takes acting lessons on the down low, his daughter moonlights as a stripper and his younger namesake harbors a secret fetish that involves the family's 300-pound neighbor. Under normal circumstances Vincent's wife, Joyce (Julianna Margulies), would be the family rock, but lately she's been preoccupied with uncovering the identity of the hired help, a secret that only her husband knows.

If you loved the movie Moonstruck, you'll love this movie. It's a great script, wonderful actors, filled with humor, love, and all the things we think we know about our family and discover we don't. Just like Moonstruck it feels like opera with everything building to the final scene where all is revealed. Love this movie. It's filled with joy and love

This is a laugh-out-loud, off the chain riot! Even with the language, porn sites, strip club, and lies, this was a crazy, hilarious, and great for boosting your laugh meter DVD. "City Island" starring Andy Garcia, Julianna Margulies, Steven Strait, Dominik Garcia-Lorido, Ezra Miller, and Alan Arkin was just fun entertainment. The views of City Island, in the Bronx, were beautiful and the little history lesson Andy Garcia offered the viewers was fantastic. This was great comic relief and wonderful for stress reduction.

One of the worst films ever produced. Vince Rizzo is a ludicrous parody of DeNiro's "Bronx Tale" protagonist, but Garcia's performance is more overdone than cafeteria lunch. Everyone in and around this family has a crippling secret, but, like the Rizzos' 350 lb. neighbor with her own recipe for happiness, the characters and theme are so exploited that they become little more than an annoyance. No opportunity for trite, working class stereotyping is missed. There's enough wrong with this film for everyone to gag on. A meaningless waste of time, this film makes reality TV look wholesome.
