It's a sentimental comedy - a bit pathetic. This is the limit of the current cinema in Italy. we have no sense of irony, then you can have only from one side the desperation of Gomorrah, and on the other "plastic" comedies like this one. It is very difficult to find popular movies comparable with the old Italian masterpieces. The characters are not credible and not funny. This movie depicts a more stereotypical vision of the Italian than the Sopranos' TV series - By the way, it is curios that a TV-serial made in US is more effective to depict some of the Italian culture than movies made in Italy. As Italians, we have no way to reflect to our conditions, improve ourselves and avoid to be stuck to the same old stereotypes: Pizza,Sole,Mandolino with the difference that in this movie Mafia is just a fiction - a set inside the set just to save Alberto's marriage - this is very sad, and not funny at all.
