Storyline

Two American sailors, Fiorello and Jimmy are slugged while sight-seeing in Rome and, together, they dream they are back in Rome in the days of Nero. They embark on a series of mis-adventures that include a pocket billiard contest with Nero, the establishment of an amusement park, a football (American football, not Soccer) game with a Grecian urn as the pigskin and a 1950's jam session with Roman musicians. They become favorites of Nero and his adviser Tigellius becomes jealous and goes to Sophonisbo the Sorceress for a potion which will turn Nero's favor to hatred; Jimmy and Fiorella also visit her seeking a love potion which will make Marcus fall in love with their handmaiden friend Licia. The potions are switched which leads to a series of confusions climaxed when Nero surprises Jimmy making love to Empress Poppea. They are soon in a chariot fleeing for their lives, followed by a second chariot driven by Nero. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A waste of time!
7 December 2017 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

Try to amuse yourself if you can, I did not succeed, though I tried very hard. They also tried in the film everything they could, Carlo Campanini, Walter Chiari and Gino Cervi. But, they do not have fun, the gags are dead, you have to tickle yourself, maybe you'll laugh. There are also two female beauties, Silvana Pampanini and Jackie Frost, but in vain, the story is dusty and smoking without fire.
