Worst 'film' since 'cinepattoni' saga
6 January 2020 | by francesco-imbriglia01See all my reviews

I can't tell you how wrong this film is. I can't even classify it as a film: not worthy this name.

There's little fun in it, way far from the standard of a comedian like Zalone (that I don't really appreciate but at least this is his job...). There's no structure in the plot, just a sequence of stages already seen over and over again.

Musical are not catchy neither intelligent.

There's no critic to society, nor any tentative of telling a story: just a bunch of scenes that are supposed to be funny but aren't
