About the Movie
From Focus Features, the premiere global brand in original and daring cinema, comes Focus World. Charged with finding the most exciting voices in international and independent film, Focus World is proud to present Loose Cannons a heartwarming comedy about family, business and coming out. When Tommaso makes a trip back home to Southern Italy, he plans to announce his new aspirations to write, rather than take over the family’s pasta-making business, and tell his family that he’s gay. Events don’t quite go as planned when his older brother, Antonio, beats him to the punch, and – literally – gives his father a heart attack! Now, Tommaso is left with a distraught family and a business to run, and stuck playing the dutiful son until the unexpected arrival of his boyfriend and their gay friends threatens to upend everything, and could force him to make a choice between family and true happiness.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As virtual tourism, it's a success but as dramatic fare it's a distinctly thin bowl of zuppa.
Fresh: Ozpetek takes these men and women as they are, revealing deep emotions in broad strokes. Everyone here is a disappointed misfit, not just the loose cannons in the clan.
Fresh: This Italian coming-out comedy has a neat central narrative gimmick. Unfortunately, it hasn't got a lot else.
Fresh: The feel is somewhat cloistered and the pace rarely gets the pulse racing but this is engaging and affecting stuff, handsomely shot and well acted: Ilaria Occhini is a stand-out as the grandmother.
Not such a funny comedy
This film I thought was actually not funny at all exept for mabey the friends that come and visit. This movie was sad. And not considered a comedy but more of a drama
This film makes me want to learn Italian. Funny and witty humor. definitely worth purchasing or renting, I have done both.
I may missed some of the cultural references and humor because of being American, but overall I really enjoyed it.
