MONDO EXTRAS

Pizza My Heart

He shoves his big old shrimp into her mouth with his hand and they lecture each other about how you have to follow your dreams even though that makes them both hypocrites and it goes on and on and they're both so fucking banal and then they take a picture together, and she gives him the go-ahead but instead he talks about how he'll never be a big-shot chef. Then we watch some shrimp footage and dinner is served and we stare at the plate for awhile. My God these shrimp.

Something about how the restaurant couldn't survive without Jomeo and we cut to Guido burning a pizza and screaming all, "Fire in the hole!" so you see how they're in a pickle. Except that Jomeo's pickle involves being the only good chef and breadwinner for a family of creepy morons, while Gina's is more about how she's like fucking twenty-five and lives in New Jersey but still is going to have an arranged marriage and give up her dream of photography.

Outside, Herman's Head talks some more mess about Jomeo and wanting his sauce or whatever, while Gina runs off to play three-card monte or something at a card-table down the sidewalk. Herman's Head tells Jomeo that Jean Paul loved the pizza, and Joe unconvincingly yells about how things are finally turning around.

Ah, she has bought him a hot watch off the street. So romantic.

"Wow, it's 10:17."

Gina actually asks what he means by that, so he's obliged to reply, "It's the exact time that my life started again." Barf. They kiss.

Amy Fisher shoves some cheesecake into Carlo's mouth. Seriously, that's all that happens in this movie, people force-feeding other people and calling it love. It's really disturbing.

Carlo, despite the fact that Amy Fisher's obviously in love with him, practices his proposal on her. Like, down on one knee. She looks like something is crawling up her pant leg. He pulls out the ring and she makes another face I don't even understand, and then busts out how he deserves more than this, and I guess that's fine, but then she's all, "No, I can't, no no ahhh," and then tells him that Gina's "out with Joe Montebello," and then offers him yet more cheesecake. Carlo, of course, screams like a little baby about how dare she go out with Joe Montebello and…did I mention he didn't visit her the whole time she was at college and they've seemingly not talked in four years? Did I?

Papa P comes out and there's lots of irrepressible Italian emotion, and then Papa yells over the fence at Hedaya about it, and Hedaya can't really get it up for this scene, due to the heart attack, but they all run around being passionate Italian-Americans.
