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!

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.

Great movie reminds one of a Bronx tale; begins with narration and a pre-view of whats going to happen, I liked it enjoyed the camaraderie of the guys and the philosophy of brotherhood no matter what not seen these days. If you are like me a kockaround guy from the hood and have a few good memories of the O'le days you'll like this movie. If you are a young guy wanting to know how to get up in life you'll like it too and for you gal's there's some surprises 4 stars love or leave it.

A lot of white tee shirts, gold chains, sports apparel and whatever else Hollywood feels mobsters should wear but a generic story with only average performances. At it's best it is a rip off of Goodfellas.

Street gangs in NYC have always been extant! This film detials how the mob controlled illicit activities for years there under the Gambinos and before! Tough neighborhoods breed tough kids and now it's the Hispanic and Black gangs not so much the Italians.

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.

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!
