It is hard to think that a movie like "Matrimonio Alle Bahamas" comes from the same Country who gave us Vittorio De Sica's "Il Giardino Dei Finzi-Contini" and Bertolucci's "The Conformist". And what is even more appalling is that it is at the top of the box office charts while other much more valuable Italian movies lag far behind it. And it's the same, boring and predictable comedy on provincial Italian humanity abroad, this time in the setting of the Bahamas, although the movie was shot in Miami (previous installments took place in New York or in some fancy skiing location of the Italian Alps). Other than that, it's completely empty and repetitive. Massimo Boldi reprises his already seen of the mean-spirited, yet sweet Italian provincial, a taxi driver who leaves Milan to bring her beautiful daughter to the United States. There, the daughter falls in love and gets ready to marry. Taxi driver and wife leave for Bahamas to attend her wedding, but everyone's concerned that the differences in social status may create a huge embarrassment to the girl. No story, just a pretext for a torrent of provincial humor in depicting what appears to be the most exportable of Italian characterizations.
