Product Description

Loyal to the Family. Devoted to her own. Alyssa Milano stars as Patty Montanari, a tough Brooklyn widow and mother who takes a job working for a local crime family and soon becomes romantically involved with a married mob captain (Jason Gedrick of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES). But as Patty rises in the organization’s ranks, she finds herself sinking deeper into an underworld of paranoia, betrayal and murder. Caught between the Feds, the Family and the man she loves, can she pull the trigger on the decision that may cost her everything? Academy Award® nominee James Caan (THE GODFATHER) co-stars in this acclaimed Lifetime movie inspired by the incredible true story of the woman who dared to defy New York City’s most infamous Mafia empire. From executive producer Joe Pistone - the real life Donnie Brasco.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Lifetime Movie January 24, 2009
When I first saw previews for Wisegal I knew that I wanted to see it. It had a great cast and a great storyline. Turns out it was better than what I thought it would be. Alyssa Milano gives a great performance throughout the movie and she really "sells" her character. If you like Lifetime movies OR Alyssa Milano then I think you'll like this movie.

Short Storyline: Patty's (Alyssa Milano) husband dies and she doesn't know how to support her family anymore. She meets a guy who is in the mob which she doesn't know at first. She needs money to support her family so she goes to work for him. Throughout the movie Patty learns more and more about the mob and the guy that she doesn't like until finally she tries to get out. Watch the movie to see if Patty can make it out of the mob...

Again I thought this was an excellent movie and the acting was amazing.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's a made for television Lifetime movie. December 2, 2008
When I saw this DVD on the shelf at the video store, I thought "Oh, a mob movie starring Alyssa Milano, James Caan, and some guy I've never heard of. Cool". I read the description on the back of the DVD which basically describes Milano's character as a widowed mother who takes an opportunity to work with the mob in order to support her children. Since I knew nothing about this film, I checked the rating and saw that it was 'Not Rated', which doesn't mean a whole lot. It could either be really violent and bloody or it could be a children's movie for all I knew. Hoping that it would be the former, I took a chance with it and decided to get the movie. Well, I should have read a little bit closer... it turns out that WISEGAL is a Lifetime Television movie that was shown on Cable early in 2008 and now released on DVD. If you don't know what Lifetime is... do you know the channel that your mom or grandma (or wife, depending on how old you are) sits on the couch and watches religiously that has all of those corny Dramas usually featuring a female in the lead role? That's Lifetime.

I figured since I already got the movie I may as well watch it. It turns out that overall it actually isn't that bad. I mean, Alyssa Milano is drop dead gorgeous and is the reason I got it in the first place. She actually is the leading woman in the movie and it isn't a case of her making a cameo and having her name and face plastered on the front cover in order to trick people into watching it like other movies do (not necessarily with Milano, but with any established actor or actress starring in a B-Movie).

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a guy and I like this Lifetime movie April 8, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I admit I had my doubts for this but Alyssa Milano really surprised me for her role in this film. I thought this movie was decent enough to earn an emmy nomination for Alyssa but unfortunately it did not happen. I was surprised how smart the character was especially while doing stuff for the mob and taking care of her family. It shows how different loyalties are when it comes to a family you are working for. Either way it was real treat to see James Caan in this as well because he always does well in the mafia role. I recommend this film to anyone who is a big fan of the mafia films. Hell she is just as good as Lorraine Bracco in Goodfellas and Talia Shire in The Godfather Part II. For any guy or mafia fan this is good treat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars For Alyssa... January 21, 2010
If you're looking for an action-packed, well-written film... this is NOT the film for you. A large part of the dialogue is cheesy and the characters are somewhat stereotypical, HOWEVER...

Alyssa Milano is pure brilliance in this film. Considering what she was given for material, Alyssa was able to breathe life and spirit into the character, and for that, this film is worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wisegal! March 20, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wisegal is a great movie about a mother who ends up working for criminals and the Mob. It is a great movie to watch on a Sunday afternoon. It is a story about a mother who will do what she has to in order to take care of her family. Movies like Wisegal and The Client List are movie I love because it shows that any mother will do what she has to in order to take care of her family!
