What a great miss for those who cannot speak (or better, listen) Italian... Abatantuono's linguistic and dialectal inventions are really a great fun! As usual though, the story is pretty silly, the acting quite awful (especially the mother of Laura Antonelli). But every time I see Abatantuono, I start laughing, as his look and the way he moves is already hilarious. Obviously there are many great moments, all depending on Abatantuono's lines, particularly in the restaurant and along his trip back from Spain... So if you like Abatantuono, do not miss this movie, as it is one of his (of the early period) best! Later on Abatantuono will prove to be also a great dramatic actor, playing more serious parts (Mediterraneo, Io non ho paura, etc.)
