Review by Barbara SnitzerIt took a little time for me to warm up to this very funny, enjoyable Italian comedy.  Not only does Italian star Ficarra (Salvo) look a lot like Roberto Benigni, but he has the same broad, manic comic energy that I personally don’t find funny at all.  This looked like a comedy, but I wasn’t expecting funny.

The creative director of the St. Louis International Film Festival, Chris Clark, who knows that I’m Le Movie Snob, assured me this movie was funny.  Knowing his taste, and knowing that he knows mine, I feel guilty for admitting my doubt.   Ti prego di perdonarmi.

Like the average American who doesn’t have the instinct for when pasta is al dente, it soon reached the perfect temperature.

Yes, it’s a broad comedy, with contrived romantic entanglements.  But the situations and dialogue are laugh-out-loud hysterical.  Pay special »
