Storyline

Il film è la storia di due cugini, Gaetano Geraci (Ficarra) e Paolo Geraci (Picone), costretti a separarsi all'età di 10 anni circa a causa di litigi, per motivi d'interesse, dei rispettivi padri, fratelli fra loro. Paolo, ipocondriaco, aiuta il padre nella gestione del loro albergo; Gaetano, assistito da sua "moglie" Olga, Anna Safroncik, combina matrimoni per gli extracomunitari al fine di far ottenere loro la cittadinanza italiana. La storia dell'odio dei genitori, prosegue con la morte del padre di Paolo: Gaetano per errore arriva al suo funerale, credendo di recarsi alla chiesa nella quale si celebrava il matrimonio di una sua cliente russa e di un vecchietto interpretato da Tuccio Musumeci, e per il quale, per mitigare l'ira dei fratelli della sposa ormai stanchi di rimandare il matrimonio, si offre quale testimone. Costretto ad assistere al funerale dello zio, si ritrova ad essere cacciato, per l'ennesimo rinvio del matrimonio, dai russi, e per questo si rifugia nell'albergo ...
