This movie is the twin brother of another Costanzo's mind abortion: Troppo Belli (too beautiful), a movie which now proudly stands in the bottom #50. This is not as bad as the former, but shares its own share of badness. While Troppo belli was about two characters of a weird Italian reality show called "uomini & donne", Beni (Kledi) is about Kledi, a star from another reality show, "Amici", a "Fame"-like reality. Sooo, the movie starts. Since Kledi was from Albania, there always was this joke about He coming as a stowaway on a raft. Looks like it's true. The first minutes of the movie are almost senseless. People speak, a sudden burst of slo-mo rage, then it's all downhill. Good old Beni starts as a slave dancer (?!) then escapes surprisingly easy from her 40 years old - MILF fail jailer, then starts to live with other stowaways in the happy happy community center at Ostia beach, then became a gigolò to get famous, etc etc. But enough spoil (of the fun). Let's talk about one unforgettable character, the female lead, Francesca (Laura Chiatti). Chiatti gives us another memorable character after Via del corso (2000), this time is a rich spoiled girl who's got a lot of money but, instead of taking some responsibility, whines EVERY SINGLE SECOND she's in the scene, about how she loves to dance, about how her boyfriend sucks because He doesn't want to lose his good job just to do a last minute weekend with her, and of course, while she's in love with Beni, whines about how she's not loved enough by her boyfriend. Obviously he starts betraying her with a real, normal and mature woman, and she goes crying to Beni. This is weird, because every time I saw how the boyfriend betrays her, I felt kind of happy, like she really, really deserved it. The acting is bad, but we're not at "via del corso"'s levels. But the story, the story alone, is so bad and full of bad teachings that deserves to be in the #bottom 100, alongside "troppo belli".
