It is many years ago I haven't seen such a funny comedy from Italy. In fact it's a perfect copy of the french blockbuster "Bienvenu Chez Les Ch'tis". Both versions had a great success in Italy respectively in France.
I recommend to see each one of them. "Benvenuti al Sud" I liked even much more what confirms the previous reviews here. There are many special situations with their Italian people's hot temperament from Naple.
Just see it and you will spend no doubt a very entertaining time.
