Enrico è riuscito a collezionare venti lavori diversi in due anni. A soldi non sta molto bene; per fortuna la moglie Matilde fa la cameriera e si arrangia con altri lavoretti per tirare avanti. Ridotto alla disperazione, dopo essere stato licenziato per l'ennesima volta, si rivolge a un vecchio compagno di scuola, Mario Spinosi, per avere aiuto. Mario ha sposato Carla che è molto ricca ed ha in mano i cordoni della borsa. Enrico arriva a casa Spinosi e riceve una grossa ordinazione: in cambio però deve impersonare il marito di Monique, aspirante amante di Mario, visto che Carla, moglie di Mario è tornata a casa prima del previsto. La cena a cui deve partecipare è organizzata, guarda caso, dal ristorante dove lavora sua moglie Matilde... Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Looking forward to watching it again!
14 November 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie once and I've been wanting to see it a second time ever since. I think It has a lot of silly comedy in it (my type of humor). Along the lines of Roberto Begnini's humor, if you like "Johnnie Toothpick" I think you'll like this move.
