What a bad movie
1 January 2003 | by (Torino, Italy) – See all my reviews

I am a true fan and supporter of Aldo Giovanni and Giacomo, and liked all of their other movies. But this one is really without a story, is boring and even the final twist is lacking credibility. Fair enough, there are points where you can laugh: I find the whole scene of John with Al's brother delicious. But other sections of the film are at the limit of bad-taste. I give this movie a 5 out of 10
