Certainly not a masterpiece but definitely a great comedy
1 August 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

I started to watch "Killer per caso/The Good bad guy" with no expectations whatsoever. No, actually. I did expect something: boring, conventional, trivial and cheap b-comedy that would probably give me a hint of a smile or two but nothing else. Luckily I was wrong. Even though film certainly wasn't a comedy masterpiece it also wasn't a total waste of my time. Film gave me much more than just a smile, it did make me laugh too and that's a great quality in a comedy, don't you think? Even the very first scene was funny and it didn't get any worse from there. This Ezio Greggio bloke who produced, wrote, directed and played the leading role was perhaps the most important reason why "The Good bad guy" was such a great comedy. He was like a mixture of Leslie Nielsen and Robert De Niro and his performance was downright marvelous - man truly is a comedian. I haven't seen his face too much but now when I'm more familiar with him I guess I have to remember his name.
