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 »

A very good debut for Aldo, Giovanni & Giacomo
27 July 2000 | by (Catania, Italy) – See all my reviews

Nobody thought the first film of the three comedians could be so amusing and technically good. Nobody thought three comedians coming from TV can make film so well. In my opinion this film reaches peaks that remind Tarantino (!).

If we add to this that the humor of this trio is irresistible we have one of the greatest Italian films of '90s. I love it.
