Movie Info

Comedian Roberto Benigni wrote and directed this Italian farce, in which he stars as Dante, a bus driver who is the exact double of the infamous gangster Johnny Toothpick (Benigni again). After Dante meets Johnny's girlfriend Maria (Nicoletta Braschi), he travels to her Palermo villa, where it quickly becomes apparent that Maria is setting up Dante to take the fall for Johnny's illicit behavior.

Audience Reviews for Johnny Stecchino (Johnny Toothpick)

½

A brain-dead Italian comedy from the famous Roberto Benigni, I watched it as part of my Italian class. I thought Life is beautiful was all right, so I was interested to see what Benigni would be like in a more traditional comedy. Sure enough, Benigni remains a pretty fun and energetic performer, the problem is that the rest of this movie is amazingly dumb. The jokes are completely lowbrow and the ?plot? is a barebones story that is completely reliant upon Benigni?s character being REALLY stupid. There are a couple chuckles here but as a whole it?s really not worth seeing, it hasn?t been released on DVD in region 1, and I suspect it will stay that way.

A comedic gem from the (almost) always great Roberto Benigni.
