A new judge closes a cheese factory for pollution; its owner, La Noce, bribes a monsignor who points him toward an official who might fix it. La Noce needs leverage and discovers the official's taste for other men's wives. He sends his stuttering assistant, Albertini, to hire a willing woman to pretend to be La Noce's wife. Albertini finds a virginal-looking prostitute with a potty mouth. A train trip from Rome to Sicily has many mix ups, but once in Sicily, maybe La Noce's plan to compromise the official will succeed. All the characters converge: La Noce, his wife, Albertini, the whore, her pimp, the official, his wife, and the official's jealous secretary. What about the cheese? Written by
Not, for me, as funny as 'Umbalda, All Naked And Warm', from the year before and also starring the lovely Edwige Fenech but still pleasant enough. All the usual Italian preoccupations on view, Catholic church, bribing of government officials, streetwalkers, although now I think of it barely any eating! Unless you count the seductive sucking on a bread stick from Edwige, not much eating at all. As usual although it is the men who come up with all the scheming it is the women who make the running in all the action. And action there is in this sunny farce, non-stop, actually which prevents it from getting too dull . Added to which some of the jokes really are funny, if only the bumbling Pippo Franco weren't quite so bumbling, I quite liked him in Umbalda but less so in this. Bit of a Benny hill finale this is not meant to be serious and it does have Edwige in various stages of loveliness.
