Emiliano De Martino,
The Italian film industry seems to depend on vehicles for TV comedy stars. Some are really worth watching; Aldo Giovanni & Giacomo made some gems in the past, and Ficarra & Picone are pretty interesting and actually great actors.
Ale & Franz follow up in the long line of such comedians. They certainly don't stand out as actors worthy of the big screen - their charisma does not translate well. Furthermore, this is a film about two swindlers, and there are so many of these around, that it's really nothing new. Plus, it's stretched out, and this makes the film seem long and tedious. We lose interest fairly quickly, particularly seeing as time jumps too quickly, and lazily.
