Movie Info

Nick DeMaio is an aspiring actor who is perpetually typecast as "Gangster Number 3" in films about the Mob. In an attempt to be taken seriously, Nick and his buddies decide to stage a play, and not just any play, but Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," (which, after all, is just another tale about a "Don" and his "capos," except in iambic pentameter). Coming and going at odd hours for rehearsals, this motley crew attracts the attention of the Feds, who mistakenly assume these good guys are "goodfellas," and their play is a front for criminal activity. Typecast once again as a gangster--this time in real life--Nick has to prove his mettle, both onstage and off.

Critic Reviews for Friends and Romans

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Friends and Romans isn't the most sophisticated comedy, but it should inspire a few giggles.

October 29, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Leaden comedy.

March 22, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…

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.
