Zeudi Araya Cristaldi,
My wife and I were vacationing in Rome, Italy when this movie came out. I kept seeing the TV ads and it looked like a lot of fun. Finding ourselves near a movie theater where it was playing, and it being Italian Sieta -- the afternoon portion of the day where all the stores are closed, I suggested to my wife and our two friends that we go see it. Well, we never laughed so hard! Even though the movie was in Italian, the comic sketches are played so broadly, one almost does not need to know Italian to enjoy these two stars (Renatto Pozetto and Paulo Villagio at their best together). When I returned a year later I bought the PAL VHS and had it transferred to NTSC USA standard. My wife and I continue to watch it every year. We also bought the sequel, but it's not as good.
