Woah... What a funny romantic comedy
3 November 2020 | by rizvialisSee all my reviews

Dustin hoffman had showed his colors in acting back in the day already. The italian character was played by him fabulously and i have watched this movie in 2020 after some 48 years and its still relatable.

Dustin was a legend already he is a master of doing common man roles
