Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo's verve seems to have come to an end
The trio seems to have lost the verve and the comic vein of the first productions (Tre uomini e una gamba, Così è la vita, Chiedimi se sono felice). The movie seems to drag himself to an end that everyone sees clear since the beginning; besides, the comic gags of the trio sound like repetitive all along the movie, taking off the film also that little bit of unexpectedness and laughters that could give it some appeal towards the public. Also the characters look like they are fixed, fossilized; they don't absolutely change neither a bit all along their filmography, and this movie is the clear mark that a restyling is not only for Aldo, Giovanni & Giacomo a chance to renew themselves, but a real need to try to keep on that appeal that they have had in Italy since the 90s. Movie not to be seen, by my side.
