Greatest Comedy ever, Italian or otherwise.
15 August 2001 | by cobram-1See all my reviews

This lost and practically unknown movie is one of the great lost treasures of the cinema. I found a copy for rent in Brazil or all places, so it was released on video in countries outside the US. If you like Italian movies, Comedies, and movies that you walk away from feeling great about life make it your crusade to find this gem. The acting is wonderful, you'll find yourself lost in the movie and thinking as the sixth friend as they go from one hilarious escapade to another. The "wallet" scene is priceless, the cemetery scene is like nothing before or after I've yet to see in a comedy. Hopefully this movie will be "discovered" again and available in VHS or DVD soon.
