Christian De Sica,
Sequel of the much better 80's movie "L'allenatore nel pallone". It should worth a 4 (for technical and stylistic reasons), but deserves a +1 bonus for the courage of trying to revive the old - the real one - Italian comedy. Banfi acted too many times as "Nonno Libero" to be able to act again as "Oronzo Canà". Tired and with no energy. Too many moments look like commercial spots, they neither try to disguise it. Too many unuseful out-of-plot scenes just to show some more soccer player (but maybe they are what average spectators really want to view). The supporting cast looks almost like a damage. Some laughs here and there. Elsewhere, much disappointment.
