      Audience Member I have to say that i really enjoyed the film. It was funny, light hearted, and charming, and, should i say, original. Real gangsters and gangster wanna-bes who love acting to play the "original gangster" Ceasat. With so many films that simply repeat themes over and over again, great to see an original idea. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Acting Very Well Done And Was Very Funny Laughed So Much!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Several laughs and a heart warming story for the whole family. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member The most entertaining part of this movie was the usher walking through the theatre looking for something one of it's previous victims dropped in their haste to get away from it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Friends and Romans is flawed, but it's charming and good natured enough that the flaws don't harm it too much. And the concept is so rich that there's room to expand on it, so perhaps the writers can try to adapt a germ of this idea elsewhere. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Saw this at the Providence premiere on Wednesday night. An excellent film, with an extraordinary cast. Michael Rispoli is the Everyman who wants a better life and wants to escape the typecast of the typical Italian "made man", so he and his friends put on a production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar at a local theater with hilarious, madcap, and eventually redeeming results. HIGH RECOMMENDED. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tirdad Derakhshani Philadelphia Inquirer Friends and Romans isn't the most sophisticated comedy, but it should inspire a few giggles. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 29, 2015 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Leaden comedy. Rated: C Mar 22, 2016 Full Review David Noh Film Journal International Led by the wonderfully authentic Michael Rispoli, this combination wise-guy caper and ode to the theatah works amazingly well, delivering solid, warm-hearted entertainment.
