Frankie is a slightly dense Italian working in a New York pizzeria while dreaming of becoming a famous actor. When he discovers his brother screwing his girlfriend, he impulsively decides to leave the family business and pursue his dream. He finds an ad in the newspaper for a GWM seeking a roommate. Frankie assumes GWM stands for "guy with money" and moves in with no questions asked. It doesn't take long for even the dim-witted Frankie to realize that his new roomie Warren is gay. The homophobic Frankie is horrified and wants to move out, but can't afford to find another place, so the two must learn to overcome their differences and get along. Can they pull it off? And could they possibly even become friends in the process?
This movie is based on so many stereotypes and rather flimsy plot premises, that I don't really know where to start. Italians and gays are both parodied in a well-meaning if unremarkable script. It's not a horrible movie; it's just not a particularly good one either.
Interestingly, CBS tried to turn this movie into a sitcom called "Some of My Best Friends" starring Jason Batemen as Warren, but a weak movie idea makes an even weaker TV show, and it quickly flopped.

KISS ME GUIDO is one of those off beat movies that has a kick to it. It's funny, it's charming and it has a lot of sass to it. It stars Nick Scotti (Bullet, Detroit Rock City) as a straight Italian lover who thinks an add with GWM in it means 'Guy With Money' instead of what it really means which is 'Gay White Male'.
He then befriends this gay man looking for a roommate to help paying bills played by Anthony Barrile (Sinatra, Hamburger Hill) who has an ex-lover (Played by Craig Chester (Frisk, Bumping Heads) )who has a new boyfriend actor (Played by Christopher Lawford (Exit Wounds, Thirteen Days) ) who is about to put on a play production.
Guido is an actor who has no talent in the people skills area but seems to have a natural affinity for 'gay' acting roles until he realizes he must, and has to, kiss a man. The rest is pure comedy. From the straight laced strict Catholic Italian families of New York to the stereo typical 'Queens' of gay New York City
The movie made me chuckle and chuckle many times. Cleverly directed by Tony Vitale (Very Mean Men, Jungle Juice) the films makes you believe anything is possible. Fun and charming - all the way around. ...

I rented this movie thinking that as an important piece of gay cinematic history, I really should see it. I discovered that its importance lies in the fact that gay cinema has come a long way beyond this dull, predictable, badly-acted, poorly written film. The characters are also...blah. Warren (Anthony Barrile) and Frankie (Nick Scotti) are two men, gay and straight respectively who try room together. Warren needs money and Frankie wants to improve his social circle. Warren is relatively engaging and Frankie is somewhat charming at times but the other cast members bring this movie down to rock bottom. Warren's best friend (who's name has escaped me - thankfully) is painfully bad. He's intended to be the typical sardonic wise-cracking best friend but comes across as irritatingly uninteresting. There's also a sub-plot with their landlady Meryl that seems tacked on all for the sake of making the movie an acceptable length. All of this leads up to an utterly unbelievable and painfully preachy ending about the real measure of people that seems taken out of a college theatre production. For those who feel obligated to see this piece of gay cinema, do yourself a favour and just pretend you saw it.

Let's get some basics out of the way quickly: Is it "politically correct"? No. Is the script Oscar-worthy? No. Is the acting the best you've ever seen? No. Is it fun and entertaining? YES!
Some movies aren't made with Oscar in mind, and this is one of those. It's fun, light-hearted, simplistic, but so very enjoyable. I won't go into plotlines, as other reviewers have already done that. Suffice to say this movie will entertain you and make you smile.
The DVD picture is crisp and clear and the audio is perfect: not too loud, not too soft (there's nothing worse than not being able to hear the dialog only to have the house rattle once the music booms in). The widescreen format really suits this film. The only downside to this DVD release --and a minor one at that-- is the commentary by director Tony Vitale. It's incredibly boring with l-o-n-g moments of silence. There are a couple of interesting tidbits here and there, but nothing deep or earth-shattering. A bit of rehearsal on Tony's part would have helped this tremendously because he sounds bored at times. But I won't judge this feature too harshly since it's not part of the original movie per se.
If you're looking for a pleasant movie to share with friends (gay or hetero), you've found it here.

Frankie (Nick Scotti) is a Bronx, home-grown Italiano pizza guy/wanna-be actor who thinks homos are gross. Warren (Anthony Barrile) was living off his boyfriend and, now that he's gone, can't pay the rent. Terry (Craig Chester) is Warren's (completely stereotypical) flamingly gay friend who decides to put a roommate ad in the newspaper to help Warren out. Frankie answers the ad under the premise that GWM actually means Guy With Money. And that's where the culture clash begins...and the humor basically ends. Some of this movie is funny (see the subplot with Warren's landlord, Meryl, a therapist's dream trying to get her lovelife in order AND trying to get Warren to pay 5 month's back rent) but most of it manages to easily fall flat. Too much of the characters' behavior relies completely on stereotypes - gay men being flamboyant and liking showtunes, Italian men talking like uneducated buffoons and working in pizza joints - and this results in absolutely no originality, therefore no laughs. For some reason, American films with gay characters manage to go overboard in their depictions, and this is no exception. Rent it just once to see what the landlord has to say in her minimal supporting role but then forget about it. There's not much else to see.
