three-episodes comedy, Cochi Ponzoni at his best
11 March 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A three-episodes Italian comedy of the 70's. The first, and to me by far much better than the other two, features the duo Renato Pozzetto and Cochi Ponzoni in a series of demential and irresistible gags, such as Renato having his three-wheel transport bike ( "Motocarro Moto Guzzi") sporty tuned , or wanting to get a place in a restaurant named "Trattoria Milan-Inter", while the waiter at the entrance says "it's full", and in fact when the door is opened, the (ancient S.Siro) stadium of Milan can be seen, obviously crowded for a Ac Milan- Fc Inter derby. Also funny when Renato is waken up by a radio , proclaiming the most incredible news, such as " a group of dentist has estimated that the average height of Mount Cervino is 3 meters higher" : "higher than what?" "Than nothing!". Remarkable also the soundtrack by Enzo Jannacci (" E lo sputtanamento"), as well as a cameo by a very young Massimo Boldi and featuring Giorgio Porcaro, speaking the same Way that mate Diego Abatantuono famous ( but they started both in a Jannacci's TV show in 1979 , so POrcaro was first). The 2nd episode shows Paolo Villaggio kidnapped by extraterrestrial, the third one Enrico Montesano as a military officer, invading by mistake Italian Switzerland whilst searching for an open tobacconist with his unit . Both cannot be compared with the first one.
