Very funny
25 May 2005 | by videospoonSee all my reviews

I saw it when I was 13...it was a big hit where I lived in Haifa and one reason was that Slyvia Koscina was beyond alluring. This is by far one of my favorite comedies ever...made me an instant fan of that Italian comedy genre.(celebration of the insipid). Although the movie being in Italian a foreign language to me at the time, the actors were enough to make you giggle merely through expression and hand movements only like Italian know how to. The hit song from that movie by Dominnico Medunio climbed up the charts as well and added to the general excitement Love it! I have been looking for the DVD for years if anyone has it or knows how to get a hold of it let me know. Ciao Toby
