Maybe for Italians only, but definitely a gem
13 August 2006 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

I'm really disappointed with the extremely low ratings this movie received. I consider it one of the top Italian comedy movies of the eighties together with "Vacanze di Natale", "Sapore di Mare" and Abatantuono's cults "Eccezziunale veramente", "viulentemente mia" and "Attila". There are so many memorable quotes and scenes (for example the one in Cortina with everybody mad at the restaurant check) and actors offer great performances. If you enjoy movies such as American Pie, let me say this is far more funny and less vulgar. It's a pity they didn't make English subtitles in the DVD, It would be hilarious in other languages too.
