Movie Info

Dante (Roberto Benigni) is a sweet, bumbling school bus driver in Rome, beloved by all, but unlucky in love. That is, until he meets the gorgeous Maria (Nicoletta Braschi), who lures him to Palermo, Italy, with the promise of passion. But Maria is already married to a mob boss who looks just like Dante: Johnny Stecchino (also Benigni). With the Mafia after Johnny for turning snitch, Maria hopes they'll mistakenly whack Dante instead, so she and Johnny can disappear forever.

Audience Reviews for Johnny Stecchino

  • Nov 13, 2008
    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.

    Excellent and unusual comedy.

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