Storyline

Three friends leave Milan by car heading south. Two of them are married to two sisters, the third one is going to marry the third sister. The marriage is going to take place in the villa of their vulgar but very rich father in law. They are also bringing him a work of modern art: a wooden leg worth millions even if it doesn't look like it. During the journey everything happens: the future groom falls in love with another woman, the leg is lost to a team of Moroccoian football players and then given back and a dog, belonging to the old man, is lost. The father in law gets angrier and angrier and when they get in front of the villa, he is waiting for them with a shotgun in his hands... Written by Salvatore Santangelo <pappagone2@libero.it>

Trivia

The football match on the seashore is a spoof reference to Marrakech Express (1989), where a similar match is played in the Morocco desert. The stake for the old match is an exhaust pipe (relevant to the movie); in the new match the game's stake is the leg in the title, but the other post of that goal is an exhaust pipe. See more »

You'll laugh your tits off.
10 September 2003 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie by accident, the local news paper made a mistake in the listings but by the time my two mates and I had driven out, found a park and walked to the movie theatre we didn't want to turn around and go home without watching anything. Despite the fact that the three of us would struggle to turn up a single Italian word between us we all laughed ourselves silly through the subtitles and decided that this movie is an absolute ripsnorter of a film that any aspiring comedy writer can and should learn from.
