    Although not so consistently funny throughout (in fact, there are quite a few moments that fall short on the humor scale), this charming yet overrated Italian comedy compensates for that with an excellent cast (especially Totò) and some effective scenes that are truly hilarious.

    Fairly jocular throughout, with a few mild surprises, this Italian comedy almost makes you laugh quite often, but never really does. It's like an Italian equivalent of an Ealing comedy from the same era. It's perfectly watchable, Toto' is funnier than I've usually found him and it's all quite amusing. 7.25/10

    With an all star cast and essentially funny, this comedy somewhere in between neo realism and Italian farce is not to be missed.

    A broad comedy with a light touch and a warm heart. Definitely worth a watch or two.

    E' una commedia all'italiana classica fatta bene, ma non di certo un capolavoro. Anche il fatto che ci sia Totò mi pare sia un modo per strizzare l'occhio al grande pubblico e il livello delle battute (e della critica sociale) non è a livelli altissimi.

    Such a funny satire on your typical "perfect heist" films. the comedy in this film is spot on which lead me laughing constantly throughout the film.

    I love almost all Italian films.. the older the better. Like a travelogue.
