Dismal "comedy" demeans Fenech
27 February 2005 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Ugo Tognazzi is a lawyer whose flight to New York is canceled due to extreme fog and he goes back to his house, only to find a man hidden in the closet while his wife appears to be sleeping. Actually, he just sees the man's feet but he doesn't bother to find out who he is (if he did, this whole cockamamie story would be over before it started); he locks the room, goes back to bed with his wife as if nothing had happened and spends the rest of the movie fantasizing about whom the guilty party might be, while in real life each and every one of his "suspects" turn out to have solid alibis. Admittedly, I saw a poorly dubbed version of this movie, titled "Who MisLaid My Wife?", so perhaps something has been lost in the translation. What does come through, however, is a dismal, monotonous "comedy", with alternately ridiculous and tasteless (and sometimes both) fantasy sequences. Edwige Fenech looks GORGEOUS in this film, but her role is very demeaning; she is continuously insulted, publicly embarrassed and, at one point, nearly raped. As for her nudity, it is limited to those fantasy scenes, and it is rarely arousing. (*1/2)
