This is why the Boldi & De Sica franchise is considered "trash"
Okay, the Christmas comedies starring Massimo Boldi and Christian De Sica have never been particularly brilliant, although some in my opinion are quite watchable (my favorite is Natale sul Nilo), but this 1999 outing is simply despicable.
Other holiday-related outings usually have a couple of good bits or characters who make even the most cynical laugh. There is no such thing in Vacanze di Natale 2000, which turns into a sleeping pill after ten minutes.
It has no real plot, as the vacation in Cortina d'Ampezzo (couldn't the Vanzina brothers change location at least once?) is just an excuse to arrange the meeting between several idiots (the leading duo, plus Nino d'Angelo, Enzo Salvi and other fellas) and some hot babes (Carmen Electra and Megan Gale). And let's not forget the dialogue. Dialogue...it's more of a stupid sexual jokes marathon actually, since the two middle-aged protagonists have nothing else to think about.Come on, even Dude, Where's My Car? is an intelligent flick compared to this one. If you ever happen to see this movie on TV, turn it off as soon as you can.
