A very amusing comedy movie
16 October 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Carlo Verdone was a good imitator and comedy actor, here he rendered several characters with the late Mario Brega ( a former boxer and sword and sandal and western actor) as a side kick. I wonder if this movie was dubbed ( hope not) and how an American or an Asian can be amusing watching it.

Verdone 's characters are all build ed from real life people ( he rendered a wimp, a Guido, a Hippy , a priest and a boring man)and the different voices and the dialogs of those characters( if you are an Italian) were irresistible because they sound both real and grotesque at the same time. If available, see this movie in Italian with subtitles. Sadly, the now days Verdone lost his magic: his movies are still watchable and funny but without the naive strenght of the early ones.
