Eurotrapped movie scene

Bobby Kennedy III travels to Italy and finds himself EuroTrapped.

A strange little English-language production from Italy, the comedy film EuroTrapped is written by and stars Bobby Kennedy III, grandson of Bobby Kennedy and grand-nephew of John and Ted Kennedy. Alongside first-time star and writer Kennedy, the film features a notably off-center cast that includes Alec Baldwin (Rock of Ages), Giancarlo Giannini (The Seduction of Mimi) and Eva Amurri (Saved!).

Fresh out of college and eager to explore Europe, Charlie (Kennedy) takes a leap of faith and arrives in Italy without plans, friends or even a place to stay. Things get even worse after Charlie’s money is stolen and his father (Baldwin) refuses to fund his trip, leaving Charlie to fend for himself in a completely foreign world. Things begin to look up when he gets involved with two women—the dangerously Italian Valentina (Alessandra Mastronardi, To Rome with Love) and the all-American Jessica (Amurri), but everything quickly turns bad once again when Charlie accidentally angers two nasty Mafia bosses, Don Ferracane (Giannini) and Don Farina (Ernesto Mahieux).

Originally entitled AmeriQua in its native Italy, the R-rated EuroTrapped was directed by first-time filmmakers Marco Bellone and Giovanni Consonni. It had its premiere in Milan, Italy in March, 2013 and, according to the IMDB, it played in the U.S. in February, but we can’t find a sign of any Stateside screenings on the internet.

Again, this looks like a strange one that had a lot of money behind it…
