Sei persone sono sullo stesso treno, in viaggio dall'Italia verso Montecarlo. Alcuni vorrebbero giocare (e vincere) al Casinò, altri stanno portando un cagnolino ad una anziana e ricca signora per ottenere una ricompensa, un altro sta raggiungendo la moglie in vacanza. Ma la vecchia donna viene uccisa e, per paura e per goffaggine, tutti si ritrovano sospettati dell'omicidio. Written by
Seven Italians - Remo (Vittorio Gassman), Marina (Silvana Mangano), Quirino (Nino Manfredi), Giovanna (Franca Valeri) and Alberto (Alberto Sordi) - are arrested in Montecarlo for the gruesome murder of an old, rich woman. Quirino and Giovanna have been stopped near the crime scene with the victim's dog; Marina and Remo had the corpse in their suitcase; Alberto had met them all in the previous days and held a grudge against the victim. A local inspector (Bernard Blier) investigates.
Performances by the all-star cast elevate the movie. These seven giants of Italian comedy play the wretched imbeciles who become accidentally involved in the investigation, and yet, as they clumsily lie out of fear of the police, see an incredible amount of clues against them piling up. Sordi, Gassman and Manfredi are particularly brilliant. French character actor Blier (seen as Sordi's memorably awkward sidekick in Riusciranno i Nostri Eroi) plays the inspector.
