Storyline

Salvatore e Romolo sono giovani e vogliono divertirsi. Amici per la pelle vanno in giro in cerca di ragazze senza mai entrare in competizione. Finchè incontrano Giovanna. I due si danno subito da fare, ognuno all'insaputa dell'altro e Giovanna li tiene tutti e due sulla corda senza scegliere nè l'uno nè l'altro perchè le piacciono tutti e due. Le due sorelle minori di Salvatore e Romolo, Marisa e Anna Maria sono intanto cresciute e si sono innamorate di loro, ma i due non se ne sono accorti. Come andrà a finire?

Trivia

In a scene, Salvatore says he's going to commit suicide jumping off a bridge, Ponte Nuovo; actually, such bridge never existed in Rome. Indeed, the whole fake suicide-sequence was shot on Ponte Flaminio. See more »

Fun, fun, fun !!
14 March 2001 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

A fantastic and FUN film, about boys and girls of Rome...the main argument is LIFE; parties, a day taking a bath, 50's songs, girls, cars and the beauty of Marisa Allasio. I don't know why she didn't make more films !!
