A weak comedy with Toto!
16 October 2018 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

It's not one of Toto's best movies, it's just a comedy attempt, without any merit. The only funny moment is when Toto says "the prayer": Sophia Loren, Ora Pro Nobis, Brigitte Bardot, Ora Pro Nobis, De Profundis, Autobus... Lisa Gastoni is very young and beautiful, and Don Backy and Adriano Celentano, very young too, are funny, in a short appearance, singing a song.
