one of the best Italian dirty comedies
15 October 2005 | by john_w_steedSee all my reviews

This is one of the latest effort of the genre called Italian sexy comedy. this genre came out in mid seventies, direct son of Decamerotico from which takes the job's characters from the Boccaccio. There were the teacher, the colonel, the doctor, the nurse, and a various example of jobs. All was used to show the usual the stereotyped art comedy mask. This genre, riding the sexual liberation of the media in mid seventies, opposed itself to the great Italian comedy of the early 60s and its bitter humor with a chemistry of sex and comedy in different mixtures. During the second half of the seventies there are hundreths of production of which few are really remembered now. One of them is Giovannona Coscialunga (1973) with Edwige Fennech and directed by the eclectic Sergio Martino. After 8 years Martino directs Cornetti alla crema that could be defined (with the earlier Spaghetti a Mezzanotte) the top of the sexy comedy. In this case the stereotyped masks are abandoned and the actors are given a bigger range to show their capabilities. Domenico Petruzzelli, a Lino Banfi in his best interpretation, is a vatican tailor that own a well know factory in rome. His wife (Milena Vukotic from Fantozzi contro tutti) is a typical catholic housewife. His son is fat and stupid, blocked by years at elementary schools. Domenico's aim is to obtain the san Eunorio honor, by his cardinal customer, that would made great his factory. In this bizarre world there's Gabriele Arcangelo (a Gianni Cavina well fitting in the shoulder role) who, despite his name, is a hooker addicted and lives on the upper floor of Domenico, disturbing not less the calm life of his family; still Domenico and Gabriele are very good friends. Edwige Fennech plays Marianna, a opera singer wannabe, that would become Domenico's lover... Well the movie is a must see. Behind this regular life patterns hide an incredible amounts of gags and situations that will climax in which the 2 protagonist will switch identity in the face of Marianna. I love this movie and I saw it first at 8 years old and I remember I laughed for the whole movie. Probably not really understandable by foreign but i advice this gem to everyone that wanna laugh
