best Aldo Giovanni & Giacomo to date
5 January 2003 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I haven't understood why people disliked this movie so much. I think it's the best Aldo Giovanni & Giacomo movie to date! The previous three films were good, but this one is superior because it's a real movie with a real plot and a real script, not just a bunch of sketches. And it's extremely witty & funny, I nearly laughed my head off.
