Storyline

Checco, an uneducated but self-satisfied fellow from Milan, who has always dreamed of becoming a police officer, fails his entrance exam for the third time. It must be said that at the oral examination Checco said that the reason why he wanted to join the police was benefits in kind and cronyism! But the young man has connections and he soon finds himself a security agent at the Milan Cathedral. Of course the bumbling idiot proves a living catastrophe! Spotted by Sufien, an Arab terrorist who is preparing an attack against the cathedral, Checco appears as the perfect sucker. To manipulate him, he sends his charming sister Farah to him, with the mission to seduce him... Written by Guy Bellinger

Checco Zalone plays the role of the Italian stereotype in a play full of fun.
24 January 2011 | by (Milan) – See all my reviews

Following the excellent success of "Falling from the clouds"the couple Checco Zalone - Gennaro Nunziante returns to cinemas with "What a beautiful day". Beating the competition and setting a new record of receipts. This film has the air of anti-cinepanettoni: comes out on epiphany, joking lightly on hot topics such as frequent use of mimics and a lot of profanity. Those deprecated bad words that distinguished other movies of this genre are pronounced with the right comic timing provoking laughter in the audience without falling into the vulgar and coarse. The spectator likes Zalone because it is flawed and causes the viewer a sense of alienation rather than identification: no one feels so ignorant as to give more consideration to a scratch on his car than to a painting of the seventeenth century, no one has a lexicon so deprived, no one is able to combine so many pies on workplace, no one is so unlucky in love (or at least hopes to not be).

Recommended for everyone that's looking for a light film and a two hours of fun. carefree.
