Incredibly cheap story about a man (Giorgio Porcaro, the one who created the Terrunciello character along with Diego Abatantuono) who claims falsely to be Mogol (one of the most famous Italian writer of popular song lyrics) in order to reach the rampaging millionaire Max Bernasconi (a great Massimo Boldi) - a clear, surprisingly early parody of Silvio Berlusconi. Delirious plot, demented characters, mass quantities of Terrunciello's slang: everything fits into one of the last focused effort of dying Italian genre cinema to create laughs just with bodies and language, out of a super shoe-string budget. Between cinema and television stand-up comedian situation, ultra-popular and ultra-poor, "Si ringrazia la regione Puglia per averci fornito i milanesi" (literally:"We thank Puglia County for providing the Milanese people") is an 80s stra-cult of Italian derailed comic cinema. A must see for every fan.
