A funny game of misunderstanding about American Mafia.
7 November 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Low budget movie performed by some of the best young Italian comical actors at that time: Vito Antuofermo, Enrico Brignano and Alessandro Gassman (son of the most famous Vittorio Gassman playing Don Vito Bracalone). The plot is easy and funny.

SPOILER. Three young Italian actors while attending Actor's Studios set up an extortion acting like real Mafiosi. But after some time the NY mafia discover the trick and…

Very funny game of misunderstanding, gags and jokes for a movie not ambitious but able to play with all the usual bromides regarding the Italian/American mafia. Anyway at the end we are far away from 'Analyze this'. Males will enjoy for sure the presence of Lola Pagani, in fact, her beauty is the only reason why she acts in this film. Director Giulio Base (his top was with his first 'Il Portaborse') after 'La Bomba' directed mainly TV series.

My personal rating is 4 (out of 10).
