Good comedy
17 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous comment about this movie. The film is easy to watch, good performances. I found it authentic and realistic. All in all, the movie contains themes that many of us can identify with and will leave you inspired. In more than a few years I could not find a single Hollywood movie worth watching. There are some exception of course, one of them is "The Sessions (2012)", or some independent movies. Acting in Hollywood movies is so bad these days, even the famous actors seem to lose their groove. Movies are being written using the same formula. It is nauseating. So this Italian comedy, while not a masterpiece, is definitely a feel-good movie for a rainy evening. Thanks for the internet where I can watch excellent foreign movies.
