When God created man, his first try at it wasn't very successful... Fantozzi was born, and right from the beginning of time he was doomed to be humiliated and laughed at. In a number of episodes we follow the unlucky adventures of the various descendants of Fantozzi through time, from the moment they are thrown out of the Garden of Eden to the Space Age of the future.

The "Fantozzi" movie series is quite popular in Italy, but this fifth movie is really a forgettable one. The whole idea is to show how the Fantozzi family has lived as losers through time ever since the beginning of the world. This is done by showing a number of episodes: we see Fantozzi as a caveman, a Greek soldier, a crusader, a French revolutionary and more. Nothing wrong with it, but unfortunately most of the episodes are not so funny, and the movie is actually quite boring. Sure there are a number of funny episodes, but they are very few, too few actually to make the movie interesting. I don't know if these movies are shown outside of Italy (they are unknown here in the Netherlands, and I think I once saw one on German TV), but if you happen to find them, take a look at the first ones ("Fantozzi" and "Il secondo tragico Fantozzi") and leave this alone, you won't miss much...
