Plain awful...
22 June 2008 | by marco70See all my reviews

Three stars out of ten: JUST out of respect to Alberto Sordi's previous career. The movie in itself would deserve 2 stars. "Embarassing" is the kindest word that can be used for this movie.. Totally unfunny, almost insulting in its portrayal of "how the average Italian sees the Americans", totally unengaging in its story, the movie really seems a (bad) excuse for Mr. Sordi to show us his poorly made home-movies of his trip to the Big Apple. His acting does never to recall us what a great actor he was, though he's not worst of the pack: Dom DeLuise really seems to be in the movie just for "alimentary reasons", and the lazy and out-of-synch dubbing only make the whole mess even worse.
