This is an Italian comedy about 3 longtime friends, Max, Irma and Samuele, who have basically reached the end of their ropes. Max works for a newspaper, Irma is a doctor and Samuele teaches criminal law. Each of them lose their jobs to people at their jobs that are no as qualified as they are. They get together at a dinner where they decide to help each other out by coming up with plots to ruin each other's nemeses. They create a movement called "Pirates of Merit" after they see that their efforts have an effect on their enemies. The film all around is good and I think a lot of people can relate to the characters and how they feel after they lose their jobs. The plot sort of reminded me of the American film "Horrible Bosses". Max and Irma end up falling for each other but I didn't really buy the chemistry between them. The movie definitely has its funny parts, but some of the pranks and plots were a little lacking in their creativeness. I really enjoyed the prank where the trio convinced a woman that the mafia was after her. All around I would watch the film again.
