A famous Italian comedy, Totò, Peppino e i fuorilegge is a perfect example of mildly amusing but unexceptional script elevated by great actors.
Deadbeat Antonio (Totò) is married to rich, greedy, obnoxious Teresa (Titina De Filippo); with the help of his friend Peppino (Peppino De Filippo) he pretends to be kidnapped to get the ransom. Their stupid, half-baked plan goes horribly wrong when Teresa realizes the truth and then Antonio is actually captured by real bandits.
Totò as his trademark loud-mouthed, resourceful idiot is ably supported by Peppino as the miserable straight man and by Titina as the odious wife. Not on par with the greatest Italian comedies like I soliti ignoti, Divorzio all'italiana, Sedotta e abbandonata and others, mostly because those have a depth and a bittersweet undertone lacking from this one. Still, well-acted and pretty funny in its own right.
