In this comedy-drama that takes place in a small fishing community in the New York outer boroughs, Andy Garcia plays Vince Rizzo (Bronx enough for youse?), a corrections officer who takes in a parolee who happens to be his secret son from a decades-old teenage fling. Needless to say, this throws his home life into turmoil, especially as his daughter is home from college on spring break (or is she?) and his school-skipping son is trying to come to terms with his fat-girl fetish. As Vince's wife, Juliana Margulies is decent, and looks terrific. The fact that Margulies is aging so gracefully shouldn't take up so much of a viewer's attention, but there's so little else to notice in the rest of the film that it's hard to help it.

City Island is an all-too-familiar destination

City Island is a tolerably charming, modest effort from a polite writer-director. But it's also so limp and colored so tidily inside the lines of faux-indie narrative, we can't help but ask—Why bother? »
