Storyline

Martina is a professional lady whose clients are harmless if eccentric; she sees herself as a social worker. Shy Maurizio dubs sound for cartoons while his outgoing brother dubs more saucy material and gets the girls. After Maurizio accidentally helps Martina on some of her assignations she decides to find out if he wants to help regularly. Whether or not it's the possibility of romance, Maurizio is horrified to find on their first date that his hands have been replaced by cartoon ones with minds of their own. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

quirky sexy fun
20 March 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Martina has an unusual job satisfying her eccentric clients' sexual fantasies. Maurizio 'Sbaffino' (Maurizio Nichetti) spends his time collecting sounds from the world. He dubs cartoons while his brother does less innocent films with a bevy of beauties. He happens upon Martina during one of her jobs. As they connect, he's horrified to find himself turning into a cartoon as the cartoon world collides with the real world.

Maurizio has such an unique clownish look and he is a charismatic performer. Angela Finocchiaro is a sassy broad and a great partner. It's ridiculous. It's silly. There are no hot babes dubbing in their lingerie in the real world. This is simply a fun screwball comedy with a fun pair.
