Nicky Deuce, the new original movie from MarVista Entertainment, as seen on Nickelodeon is avaible now on DVD. I recently received a copy of Nicky Deuce for my family to review.
Nicholas Borelli II (Noah Munck), a sheltered suburban teen, has the adventure of a lifetime when his plans for math camp take a sudden turn. Instead, he is forced to spend his summer in Brooklyn, New York, with the family he never knew he had—his Italian grandmother Tutti (Rita Moreno) and Uncle Frankie (Steven R. Schirripa). A fish out of water, Nicholas leans on the local kids to help him fit in and ends up with a slick new persona: Nicky Deuce. But when Nicky runs into trouble, he discovers a family secret and learns that the tough streets of Brooklyn aren’t always what they seem.
Starring Noah Munck (Gibby from “iCarly”), Cristine Prosperi (Imogen from “Degrassi”), Steve Schirripa (from “The Sopranos” and “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”), and Cassius Crieghtney, with Vincent Curatola, Tony Sirico and Michael Imperioli from “The Sopranos,” Rita Moreno, and a special appearance by James Gandolfini (from “The Sopranos”).
We watched Nicky Deuce with our fourteen year old daughter. Being a movie that first aired on Nickelodeon, I was worried of it being too young for our family to enjoy. Turned out to be a great choice for family movie night, and a lot of fun. While my husband and I enjoyed seeing actors such as Tony Sirico, Michael Imperioli, and a guest appearance by the late James Gandofini, our teen daughter (an iCarly fan) was excited to see Noah Munck in a non-Gibby role. Star sighting aside, we all three enjoyed the movie. Very well acted, and full of heart, Nicky Deuce put’s a fun spin on the classic mobster story. I liked it so much, I’m thinking of reading the book on which it was based, by Steve and Charles Fleming.
