HOME DECOR: "...immaculate living room of the Galasso home... [Frankie]'s an only child, and the living room is something of a shrine to him: on an end table, a head shot is mounted in a thick wood frame carved with the words ''Singer! Dancer! Actor!'' Above the couch hangs a poster of his performance in a Broadway production of ''An Inspector Calls'' -- 9-year-old Frankie dressed in knee socks and knickers, looking lost... a gold record, which now hangs on the Galasso's living-room wall."
A TALE OF TWO PIZZAS: Since this movie is Frankie's second feature film and has been receiving good reviews before even its June 30, 2003 release date, we thought would give you some info.
"The Bianco and the Rossi families of Yonkers have been feuding for years - over pizza! Those who prefer a tangy sauce go to Rossi's; those who like their crust thin and crispy go to Bianco's. When Angela Rossi, armed with a newly minted associates degree in marketing from FIT, tries to help her father put the Biancos out of business, pizza detente goes out the window. And when doodle artrist Tony Bianco agrees to help his father steal the secret of the Rossi's sauce to win the neighborhood pizza contest, pizza war - and a little star-crossed loving - follow."
WHAT HE LOOKS FOR IN A GIRL: "She definitely has to have a good personality. She has to make me laugh. Looks are always nice, but it isn't #1 on my list."
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The first thing Frankie notices about a girl is how she behaves -- "I always like to see how she acts around other people to see if we'll be able to get along or not."
THE PERFECT DATE: For Frankie, any date is perfect if it can goes so well that you think about it for the next week "or two or even more."
What does shy Frankie do when he likes a girl? "I guess I start flirting with her. I guess that's it. I don't really know what else to do!"
