Did Jerry Zucker watch it?
2 October 2002 | by (Sassari, Italy) – See all my reviews

Sure I'm wondering, but try to find out the great similarity between Asso and Ghost, and then consider that Asso dates back to 1981 and Ghost to 1990. Did Jerry Zucker ever watch this almost unknown italian film? Anyway, another really funny movie, if you like Celentano's particular sense of humor.
