My Best Enemy
14 August 2010 | by lasttimeisawSee all my reviews

As the two leaders of this Italian comedy, one is the director and another is the co-writer, one can speculate that the self-involved commitment is much stronger and the intentions of capturing comedy with plus little dramatic touch is overt. But the outcome is a little bit as expected.

I have to say that it is quite easy to love this film from its slapstick beginning, then with its mainline gradually unveiling, the story becomes cheap, luckily as far as the Italian humor remains, it is still enjoyable.

Comedy is the most difficult genre to make for a film especially with an ambition of being universal. One has to omit a lot of distinguishing features to meet the tastes from different cultural backgrounds, which in my opinion is easier to achieve (for example by making the story conventional as what this film did), it gains more audience meanwhile loses much more admiration.

The acting is unbalanced, I totally enjoy the performance of Carlo Verdone (also the director of this film), but others are banal, young actors need experience and training.

I cannot blame too much of this film for not being great, as there are tons of shameless garbage comedies everywhere, even in the still developing Chinese film market, which are much worse than this one.

If there was a laughter-counter at present while we were watching this film, this film could be qualified for the amount of funny moments, although it is uneven, or maybe the fact is that our thresholds of laughing are lowered.
