Product Overview

Michael Rispoli plays Buddy Visalo, a factory worker with big dreams and a tendency to be unsuccessful in translating those dreams into reality. Once an aspiring singer hoping to emulate his idol, Julius La Rosa of the "Your Hit Parade" television show, Buddy now lives in Staten Island with this unwaveringly pragmatic wife, Estelle (Katherine Narducci). With the purchase of a dilapidated old house, Buddy hopes to turn the building into a downstairs tavern where he can perform while he and Estelle live upstairs. However, they soon discover it inhabited by two previous tenants: an irascible drunk Irishman named Jim O'Neary (Kevin Conway) and his much younger, very pregnant wife, Mary (Kelly Mcdonald). In spite of his initial intentions to drive the couple out, the kind-hearted Buddy eventually befriends Mary after she gives birth and is abandoned by her husband. Gradually, their friendship turns to love based on their mutual need for support. Buddy must eventually make a choice about his true loves in life in this touching and affecting romantic comedy.

ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review One of the most refreshing aspects of Two Family House is that it doesn't feel the need to go through all of the obligatory (and predictable) plot contortions mandated by most romances. Buddy and Mary don't endure the Big Breakup caused by the Big Misunderstanding, which, in turn, is followed by the Bigger Reunion. Their relationship has its share of complications, but they're not the run-of-the-mill stumbling blocks that we see in nine out of ten mainstream films. That's only one of many reasons why Two Family House is worth seeing. Forget the voiceover and concentrate on what the characters are saying and doing, and the payoff will be worth the effort.
