Storyline

Peppino, a slow-witted local villager of the Italian resort town of Amalfi, is bribed to impersonate famed rock and roll star Adriano Celentano for autographs and personal appearances. While Celentano tries to romance Emanuela Mazzolani, the daughter of a well-to-do resident who dissaproves of the union between his daughter and the man he thinks of as a "punk", Peppino, unaware of the true nature of his job to impersonate Celentano, tries to deal with his girlfriend's newborn baby which gets switched around between him and Celentano.

Really funny
19 January 2004 | by Baron_VampireSee all my reviews

Great comedy by future horror director Lucio Fulci. Adriano Celentano plays himself going to Amalfi with his band. This films is full of good jokes and they're really funny. You can listen to the several great Adriano's songs and watch his wife Claudia Mori. Fans of eurohorror will recognize beautiful Rosalba Neri (Lady Frankenstein, Amuck).

This title is highly recommended for those who seeking for real comedy but not for those who like stupid films such as American pie or Scary movie.
