Not the best Alberto Sordi comedy...definitely there are better ones !
21 October 2004 | by (Rome,Italy) – See all my reviews

Comedy of newly hired police officer with his excessive youthful enthusiasm, pedantic and obsessive ways, causes a lot of exasperation among his more laid back colleagues. Also his courtship of a young lady is done strictly by the police rule book, with military like respect and obsequiousness. A good Alberto Sordi comedy, but certainly not his best.

Not worth to buy DVD or Video, but worth to watch on TV (in the unlikely event it ever gets shown on Italian TV,…..forget about ever seeing it outside Italy). The best Alberto Sordi comedy(or tragi-comedy) DVD films worth to buy, are……

'Vita difficile', 'Il Vigile', 'Tutti a casa', 'Il maestro di Vigevano', 'Americano a Roma', to name a few.

Vote for this film, only 6.
