Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Pretty much of a mess, full of narrative gaps and characters who arbitrarily appear and disappear.
Fresh: If you're willing to swallow those formulaic plot machinations, you may reasonably enjoy this rough-hewn debut effort, which is far more effective in its quieter, dialogue-heavy moments than when it attempts more ambitious cinematic conceits.
Rotten: Whenever Martin attempts translation to the filmic -- montages, artsy jump cuts, painfully obvious symbolism (you bet the tambourine girl represents death) -- calamity ensues.
Fresh: Deep intelligence and a warm, enveloping affection breathe out of every frame.

family and love discovered
a very sweet and thoughtful love story...the cast was superb at drawing you in to their family...it reminded me what it means to be a family.
A Wedding for Bella
Wasn't sure I wanted to purchace this movie. After watching the trailer I still don't know. What a STUPID trailer. It doesn't given any indication of the plot of the movie at all. Come on, there's got to be a better viewing to show what this movie is all about. No wonder it only has a 54% rating. :(
Love and Family
As a previous review stated don't bother with the trailer it is meaningless and has almost nothing to do with the rest of the movie. Also the plot "summary" above is not totally accurate.
Dominic (Scott Baio) lives in two worlds. He is extremely successful in the corporate world where he streamlines companies by "trimming the fat" (i.e. firing people) but that is not what he loves. He loves his little bakery where he cooks and spends time with his two brothers. He also loves his upstairs neighbors, Bella and Massimo, so much so that Bella refers to him as "her son". But Dominic stops and takes stock of his life and his choices when he learns that Bella is dying.
Bella and Massimo have been saving money all their lives for their daughter Lucca's (Kristin Minter) wedding someday and Dominic vows to make sure that Bella does not die without seeing that dream fulfilled. Even though they have never met.
So Dominic and Lucca agree to date and get married in order to see Bella's one last wish come true. Along the way they are both reminded what it means to be family and start to realize that what started out as a way to make Bella happy may just be their ticket to happiness as well.
While not a classic it is one of the most heart warming movies I have seen in a long time.
