You won't hate it, but you won't laugh much, either
George Hilton is well-cast as a charming turn-of-the-(20th)-century Robin Hood-type bandit widely recognized as the "Passatore" in this harmless, childish little period comedy. The always gorgeous Edwige Fenech (my main draw to see the film) is wasted in a thankless role as his temperamental potential wife who wants him to go straight. Fenech does look spectacular in cleavage-baring period dresses, though. The film is fairly well-produced but it doesn't have much plot, it's mostly a succession of slapstick fight scenes in the style of the extremely popular at the time Bud Spencer - Terence Hill comedies. Fans of those movies will probably enjoy this one too, kids will probably like the piefight and Fenech fans will be left wishing they could see more of her. All others can safely miss this one. *1/2 out of 4.
