one of the best foreign comedies,i couldnt stop laughing !!
7 December 2002 | by (upstate New York) – See all my reviews

well first let me say i like adriano celentano and his movies at all. he plays awesome in his movies,he plays the super macho and he did his job very good,really.i dont know if this movie is available in english,as for myself i saw it when i was on vacation in germany and i loved it.i watched all the other "celentanos" and he´s the best,really. if you like 80´s comedies and your able to understand any language in which it was released,you shouldnt stop waiting.A+++
