QFC - Totò, Peppino e la Malafemmina
25 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Funny. That's it. But if you say this to a Totò fan, they will kill you. Truth is that this film is as thin as thin as a wafer and the plot is just built around a famous song by Totò, 'Malafemmina'.

The film has its moments, but when Totò and Peppino leave the screen with their hilarious gags, the film is just not interesting. But what the hell, if you want fun with no strings attached, watch it. You should enjoy it.

WATCH FOR THE MOMENT - When Totò and Peppino write the letter to the 'Malafemmina', the nephew's girlfriend, telling her to leave him alone and let him study.
