Storyline

Eternal bachelor Lupo plays the comical presenter to the musical acts in his own Italian restaurant 'Serenade Café' in New York, but operatic singer Gina is not amused, she throws him out of her dressing room- the more she insults him, the crazier the old fool gets about her. To keep him off she insists her husband must be an opera singer, so he is easily duped by Ierra, who hits on with Gina himself and ships Lupo off to his Italian cahoot, musical teacher Marcello, for lessons- actually he is so bad that even the dog runs off, and after they bribe the local opera to give him a tiny part, the sound-tortured audience chases him for his life. He passes out but is found and taken in by a winegrowers family, which gives him confidence and a killer voice... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The opera song the mediocre female singer sings who ends up dating "Lupo" (Dangerfield) to further her career (since he owns a famous restaurant), is the same tune written for Citizen Kane (1941) in which the main character, buys his "trophy" girl an opera house. See more »

it's opera and with humour - that alone merits 7 stars
17 September 2010 | by karlericssonSee all my reviews

totally predictable and really cheap movie in every way but one and that's opera. lovely opera, lovely arias and everything else becomes lovely that would otherwise stink. some genuinely good jokes, however, which merits another 2 stars.

lovely scenery, lovely italy, lovely....further enforces the extra 2 stars.

And then we have Rodney Dangerfield, who seems to be unable to do anything wrong. That man has funny-bones for sure.

The story here is ridiculous but who cares? For anyone who hates opera this film is a disaster but for us opera-lovers or, should I say "aria-lovers" (because a long opera with no good arias is some serious pain in the ... whatever).

The only bad film I've seen with Rodney Dangerfield so far is "The Godson" and that was with Dom DeLuise as well! Strange movie that one - everybody looked as if they would rather be sleeping.

Here everybody looks as if they would rather be in Italy and I do not blame them.
