Another Triple Trial Team-up
3 October 2003 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

`Ricchi, ricchissimi, praticamente in mutande' (aka Don't play with tigers) is another comedy anthology from the team that brought us `Zucchero, miele e peperoncino' (1980). It features the same cast, the same premise and the same courthouse. Three cases of misunderstanding and mischief follow:

First up in court is Renato (Pippo Franco), who in order to enjoy the cheapest holiday possible, builds his own beach house. The trouble starts when a small group of nudists begin to terrorize the family, and Renato in particular. As usual, Pippo Franco gets bullied and degraded like no other.

5 out of 10

In the second hearing, Mario Zamboni (Lino Banfi) tells how he was smitten by a German woman in a hotel. Naturally, he had to go to great lengths to have a secret rendezvous without arousing the suspicion of his wife and daughter. The customary running around in hotel hallways with trousers around people's ankles ensue.

4 out of 10

The final court hearing centers around Berto Del Pra (Renato Pozzetto), who is trying to get a wealthy sheik to invest in his shipyard. But the sheik takes a liking to Berto's wife Franscesca (Edwige Fenech) and wants to have her thrown into the bargain. Renato Pozzetto steals the show with his dead-pan delivery. No matter how much he tries to manipulate others, his own fate is always worse.

6 our of 10

Even though none of the protagonists repeat their characters from the previous film, some may argue that Pippo, Lino, Renato and Edwige always play the same part anyway. Pippo panics a lot, Lino lusts after women, Renato sees all his scams backfire and Edwige is just plain gorgeous. However, the stories are a bit more predictable than usual. Probably the biggest surprise is that Edwige Fenech keeps all of her clothes on. It seems that after more than ten years of taking her top of in all of her films, La Fenech finally said no for once.

Average 5 out of 10
