An entertaining comedy by Verdone
19 February 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Certainly not one of the best Verdone'e comedies but I still found "Me, Them and Lara" an entertaining comedy. Much of the jokes and the irony in the movie is based on the contrast between the main character Father Carlo Mascolo, a missionary priest living in Africa who, due to his faith crisis, he goes back to his family in Italy to reflect upon his situation, and his relatives who are very different from him, being less meditative and more practical and cynical. In the plot Lara, played by the stunning Laura Chiatti, has a central role. Father Mascolo has a slight crush on her while his siblings want to get rid of her because she inherits their house according to the will of their father who just lost Olga, his girlfriend and also Lara's mother. Good jokes and comical situation make this movie enjoyable.
