This is the Greek equivalent of a bad, predictable Hollywood comedy, but its importance should not be exaggerated. It's true that it contains ham acting from beginning to end, the story is muddled at best, and there are no real moments for laughing out loud. Nevertheless, if you are interested in Greek cinema, and just want to pass some time, you can still watch it. Just don't expect belly laughs or a desire to share it with your friends.
It's in essence just the story of a small town "get rich quick"-kind of guy who finds himself in the middle of some wild schemes involving the maffia, a beautiful, but manipulative stranger, and his doppelganger. It manages to be ludicrous, but without the proper structure of french farce. If you're looking for a Greek comedy that is genuinely amusing, I suggest "Nisos".
