the outrageous male persona meets its match
24 March 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This sort of tongue in cheek comedy is truly unique, an examination of the Italian male persona with fantasy exaggerations that are hilarious, a guy that can't stop himself from picking up women while en route to his dates, women swooning over him, laying awake in anguish, the use of the English-language word "Bob" cracked me up every time it was used, similar to in "Being John Malkovich" when people were thrown out onto the New Jersey turnpike, these comedy bits worked. I couldn't help thinking David Lynch had seen this film once and used it for his Twin Peaks twisted version of "Bob." The collection of women here are gorgeous, Zurlini's exquisite technique is already evident in this early film, and for pure comedy, it was a mixture of Pietro Germi's outrageous Sicilian reflections in his 64 film "Seduced and Abandoned" and Fellini's "La Dolce Vita."
