Merdaccia!!!
10 August 2001 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

"Fantozzi" are the first of a long series of movie (going more and more ahead it has been arrived to a repetitive comedy). The story speak about the accountant Ugo Fantozzi, a man much ill-fated, and of it's daily adventures, in the office and in the house. All it is drawn from the book "Fantozzi", published in the 1971 by Rizzoli. And it is just this last one that distributes this movie. An enriched film thanks to Villaggio and the rest of the cast (between which Liu Bosisio, Anna Mazzamauro and Gigi Reder). But also thanks to a good script, written without stupidity. It's a full film of catastrophic adventures, in which Fantozzi goes always fall to us, to times without it's will. With this comment I have commented also the other "Fantozzi" films.
