A MUST ONE!, 10 October 2003
Author: Hammerblow from Florence, Italy

Simply THE BEST Banfi's movie! Highly recommended, even if the vhs is a bit hard to find. All the characters involved in this film will give you lots of fun, starting from Gigi Reder -R.I.P.-(the legendary Rag.Filini in the Fantozzi's saga), Franco Bracardi, and the awesome Alfonso Tomas, here in its all-times best performance!
