One of the smartest of its kind
14 May 2002 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I'm rather expert in this kind of film, I've seen many by and with Christian De Sica, whom I consider very skilful.Simpatici e antipatici is not, like other films of the same kind and language, based mainly on sex and vulgarity, but it makes fun and reflects parts and attitudes of Italian high society, such as attitudes towards bankrupt, secret lovers and humble people like the workers in the club. De Sica is typical Italian scoundrel, who betrays his wife and doesn't spend time with his too fat daughters; in the end produces a smart and entertaining effect, especially using characters like Gianfranco Funari, who entertains with his seriousness and importance. The joke "Firmato Badoglio" is very enjoyable.Language can be a problem, because it's spoken with Roman accent and only Italians or people who know dialects very well will understand it. Any translation won't preserve the film's highly enjoyable charm.
