Not surprisingly, That's Amore! takes its cues from its parent series and includes lots of drinking, endless cat-fighting, and hypersexualized behavior. But the show moves beyond hedonism to exploitation by asking the women to participate in challenges that are designed to be demeaning -- like wrestling for meatballs in a giant pool of spaghetti. Meanwhile, Nesci does things like ask his potential dates probing questions about their breasts and smell their armpits while reveling in the fact that they're willing to go all out for him. Even more troubling is the show's use of ethnic stereotypes to sanction most of these over-the-top performances.

That's Amore! offers some voyeuristic guilty pleasure for adults who enjoy this sort of thing. But the excessive behavior, the stereotyping, and the disturbing message it sends about what you have to do to find love makes it pretty iffy for teens.
