Big Mamma's Boy features appearances from Idol winner Natalie Gauci and Italian funny man Joe Avati. Set in Melbourne's Italian-Australian community, Matteo commented, 'I can't wait to bring this family film to the screen. It's been a long time coming to find a script that is both funny and full of heart.'
