A family by surprise! Five people who never met are convened by a notary for the reading of a will, and learn they are all brothers and sisters, children of the same father! They'll share a large inheritance if they can deliver the ashes to their father's favorite lake in Arizona! Accepting the challenge, these newfound family members ("mai stati uniti") set out on a journey full of hijinx and comic adventures in the Stati Uniti d'America. What a quintet! Antonio, the gambling addicted waiter; Angela, the panicky divorcee; Nino, an unemployed mechanic; Carmen, a shopaholic; and Michele, who grew up at a zoo.Written by
Relatively amusing, below average movie. It's OK for a rainy afternoon if you want to turn your brain off and have nothing better to do.
The acting is quite good throughout, and the script is passable. Everything else like the cinematography, sound, etc. is done quite professionally, in the best tradition of modern Italian comedies, but there are many clichés, there is nothing original or extremely funny about this movie.
In the end, it is still mildly entertaining though, and never boring, so I suppose it shouldn't be shunned altogether. Watch it if you enjoy such movies, just do not expect too much.
