5.0 out of 5 stars Check it out- October 9, 2006
By Rex
Format:DVD
Great movie, great cast. If you're a fan of mob/mafia style movies you should check it out. If you're a fan of "guy works hard to be a somebody and make something of himself" style movies you should check it out. If you want to see a great story with great actors, you should check it out! Wannabes is more than just a mob flick, though it has just the right amount of that element. It's a story about family, friends, respect, and courage and what all that means on the streets. William DeMeo tells an American tale with a lot of heart- not to be missed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good movie March 15, 2004
By John
Format:DVD
This film was very good. Demeo, Dubin, and Addessi. Deserved the awards that they won. Thousands of independent movies are made each year. Especially mob films. And they go no where. Just on the shelf. Artisan picked up this movie for a reason. It's damn good. The movie is everywhere. And it deserves the recognition that it is getting. The film is hardcore. Very good acting. Filmed on the streets of Bklyn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, Great Story line and cast October 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is not a Goodfellas type of film.. this movie gives you a look into the lives of 4 young italian american men from brooklyn who desire much more in life then their going no where proffesions. They hook up with the neighborhood mafia boss("Jelly" from The movie "Analyze This") and have a growing hatered for the bosses son. There are some twists and turns with comedy,drama and action as we eventually see the men make it into the world of organized crime. I enjoyed this very much! Willam Demeo was great in this film he stared, wrote, directed and produced it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Italian Mob Movie May 6, 2003
Format:DVD
I just happend to rent this movie from blockbuster one night after reading the info on it. I was blown away! What a great movie the actors are highly underated and are now some of my favorites. Another thing that was cool was that the actor William Dameo played the voice of Paulie in the new video game Mafia and many of the same character names are used in this film that were from the video game. Tell ya what...Look out for the actors in this movie, all of them should be leading actors in the years to come. Get this movie, it will be one of your favorites.

Vinny Vella from my favorite Casino in this as Carmine the consilgere in The Minieri Crime Family. Joseph D'Onofrio from my favorite GoodFellas is in this as the out of control Vinny Minieri. If you liked GoodFellas, Casino, and The Sopranos then buy it!

Sorry to say this movie seemed very low budget to me. Poor story line, poor acting, couldn't get thru it completely.
