13 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This version of Chickens Come Home is much more longer than the original, a magician and a strange man called Hadji-Ali enjoy the party with the Boys. Linda de Loreto shows us a very wild performance in the guise (and dress) of the more sophisticated Mae Busch, blackmailing Oliver and having a hard fight with Stan. (watch to believe). The finest thing is Carmen Granada playing the role of Stan's wife,very pretty and little and so revengeful and angry. The Boys are as good as ever, playing separately for the central part of the movie. maybe a little wildest than the original, with a prolonged "search for the key" in Stan's pockets (it makes ma laugh all the time)and a lot of guests in Ollie's home!
