Two American sailors, Fiorello and Jimmy are slugged while sight-seeing in Rome and, together, they dream they are back in Rome in the days of Nero. They embark on a series of mis-adventures that include a pocket billiard contest with Nero, the establishment of an amusement park, a football (American football, not Soccer) game with a Grecian urn as the pigskin and a 1950's jam session with Roman musicians. They become favorites of Nero and his adviser Tigellius becomes jealous and goes to Sophonisbo the Sorceress for a potion which will turn Nero's favor to hatred; Jimmy and Fiorella also visit her seeking a love potion which will make Marcus fall in love with their handmaiden friend Licia. The potions are switched which leads to a series of confusions climaxed when Nero surprises Jimmy making love to Empress Poppea. They are soon in a chariot fleeing for their lives, followed by a second chariot driven by Nero. Written by Les Adams <>

4 March 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a madcap Italian slapstick comedy of the type Roberto Benigni has made world-famous in recent years. I caught this in the mid-Sixties on a Chicago TV late-show feature, back when they still took a chance on obscure films and before they decided "Three's Company" reruns were more to their likings. It's immensely creative and weirdly, surrealistically funny, moreso than the premise might seem. It could have been just another fish-out-of-water plot, but the script and principals keep the audience guessing throughout. The numerous bit players have their day in the Roman sun with wacky blackout-type bits. Very entertaining, and I wish the film was better-known. Recommended.
