Verdone is losing his touch

I have been a fan of director/writer/actor Carlo Verdone since the late 70s. In the 80s his film have been sent to memory by an entire generation, and many people can actually remember quotes from those films. But now his motion pictures don't have the same qualities: interesting characters, solid scripts, memorable lines. This film in particular lacks of many of those. What happens is predictable and sometimes i can't believe such things can really happen. Of course a film is not supposed to talk about real life, but Verdone's characters are usually drawn from real life and that's their strength. Io, loro e Lara disappointed me. 5 out of 10
