Just another funny Celentano
13 December 2000 | by LurchiSee all my reviews

Well, i like adriano celentano a lot. and this film is made for him. i think he can´t act very well, he´s just always himself, like in grand hotel excelsior, or in his films with ornella muti, but i like his style, and it seems that in the early 80s, many people thought the same. if you don´t mind the sometimes stupid gags, i recommend this film to anybody who likes celentano. and: absolutely wonderful soundtrack.
