A bodyguard with split personality is hired to protect an elderly American actor sent to Italy to promote a western video game. They get on each other's nerves but eventually form a bond. He also meets a pretty social worker with problems.
The film is nothing special, but it can entertain for ninety minutes without being trivial as many Italian Christmas comedies. The plot is similar to many other stories, the triangle Important Man Important Man's Servant Beautiful Woman often recurs in pochades, also better than this one. When it was shoot, in Italy a similar situation was happening: girls without any talent were put in a good word for TV by powerful men (senators, politicians, party spokesmen). The magistrates called it Vallettopoli. So, the movie was a little prophetic, although when it came out in December, the scandal was already forgotten.
Here we have a bunch of great Italian actors (Sergio Rubini, Margherita Buy, Stefania Rocca, Michele Placido) who balance well two famous television faces, Paolo Bonolis and Elena Santarelli, for the first time actors in a full-length film. Bonolis imitates Alberto Sordi; Miss Santarelli is surprisingly decent, considering that she didn't show any talent in TV, but she pales miserably in front of Margherita Buy and Stefania Rocca.
So, basically, a funny comedy like many others.
