I saw this film by chance many years ago on daytime TV in Italy and I laughed from beginning to end. Thinking back on it, I realise that it was no more than a series of sketches, with surreal visual gags that may not even have been very original, but at the time it did crack me up. The Italian dialogue was done with various regional accents, which made it funnier and it was a nice and welcome difference from the non-existing, theatre-trained perfect Italian of dubbed Hollywood films. Unfortunately, after chancing upon this film so long ago, I've never come across it ever again and it's a shame. Maybe I wouldn't enjoy it now the way I did then, but for nostalgia's sake I would still love to see it again.
