The soccer wizard
12 April 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Ciccio is asked to hire a 'magician' to coach the local football team (make that 'soccer' for the American readers). He takes that literally, because he doesn't know anything about football, and comes home with a 'real wizard' (played by Franco), or better: a cheap fraud who looks into a crystal ball and tells the paying customers anything that will make them happy. Now the problem is that the cheap fraud became an expensive one, since Franco signed Ciccio's contract for millions of Lire (whatever that was worth in 1971). So 'the two wizards of football' (original title) have to stand together, hide their complete ignorance and have success with the team, no matter how.

It's a classical concept for a comedy: bring somebody into a situation he's ill equipped for, and his attempts to improvise will cause chaos without end. On this simple premise, everything works well, even though the movie is quickly produced 'third division' by cinema standards.
