Ok, this movie is very funny, really. There are great jokes, a lot of gags and pure nonsense. The characters are unforgettable and the reconstitution of Middle Age is impressive. Unfortunately, it's an unknown (in the USA) masterpiece of Mario Monicelli and there are another Medieval Comedy's movies more famous, like Monty Phyton and the Holy Grail. But, if you will have a chance to watch "L'Armata Brancaleone" (The Incredible Army of Brancaleone), don't miss because it's really good.
