TOTO', PEPPINO E LE FANATICHE (Mario Mattoli, 1958) **1/2
28 June 2006 | by Bunuel1976See all my reviews

As with many films of its era, this is a satire on the Italian "boom" and the nth pairing of its star duo - which generally made for an assured pleasant diversion. Toto' and Peppino are henpecked husbands who are driven off the wall by their respective families' obsession with progress and end up in an asylum, giving way to various amusing flashbacks to their domestic and professional mishaps. The film's last third is devoted to a gala night, highlighting popular musical talent of the period; actually, crooner/actor Johnny Dorelli is featured as the secondary lead (playing Peppino's son) - who, naturally, falls for Toto''s daughter...
