Cheri Oteri as Mrs. Delvecchio

If you came from someplace you call "the old neighborhood," you probably lived next door to a Rita Delvecchio. An Italian housewife with three sons, a broom in her hand and a fridge full of leftovers, Cheri Oteri's Rita is the queen of her front porch (pictured with Christopher Walken as her neighbor Vic). She’s quite the chatterbox, but prefers yelling across the street to talking on the phone. And don’t even think about hitting a baseball in the direction of her house: if it lands in Mrs. Delvecchio’s yard, you’re not getting it back.

Memorable quote: "Oh hi, Bella! Yeah, 24 inches they said. Now I know why they call it a winter wonderland -- I’m 'wonder'-ing where the frig my car is buried! Oh, I’m bad."
