Sexual fetish...

The word is a bit strong because apart from a brief visit on a porn website, there is nothing really explicit. Let say the son (hilarious by the way) has a fetish for fat people. He loves to watch them eating. He is a nice weirdo not in the perverted sense, more in the farcical sense. Frankly the casting of this movie was a good surprise, I am not particularly fan of Andy Garcia (who speaks with his typical New York mafioso accent) but they all manage to bring a special dimension to that movie. Besides it is a beautiful story that many people will easily identify with. It is very rare in the current wave of CGI movies to watch something that refreshing. I did not know this part of New York and it made me want to go there.
