Fioravante decides to become a professional Don Juan as a way of making money to help his cash-strapped friend, Murray. With Murray acting as his "manager", the duo quickly finds themselves caught up in the crosscurrents of love and money. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

I liked this film as it featured two of my favorite actors in John Tuturo who directed and  wrote the film, produced by Bill Bock, Paul Hanson, Jeffery Kusama-Hinte and Woody Allen. The story and the film were very straightforward showing a bit of the Jewish culture within the New York setting that I found to be very interesting. The overall premise of the film I felt would come off corny, but it was charmingly funny and heartfelt and both Turturo and Allen worked well and even the A-list celebrity’s cameo interacted well within the films dynamic. So for FADING GIGGALO I give 3 ½ stars as a mildly funny film with a bit of a message on love and life.
