It's a scenario that's milked (literally) for every drop of amusement.

A good deal soapier and ultimately less satisfying than De Sica's previous collaboration with Loren and Marcello Mastroianni, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, but it's still effectively heart-rending.

Audience Reviews for Marriage Italian Style

An Italian delight that finds an enviable balance between comedy and drama and never drops the ball, with Sophia Loren in a surprising performance lending an impressive complexity to a character that could have easily turned into a caricature - comedy- or melodrama-wise.

Carlos Magalhães

Super Reviewer

It's hard not to like this Neapolitan trio! Mastroianni is delightful as a womanizer, yet once again unmanned by the indomitable Loren. Pure comedy, Italian style.

I loved this film and I absolutely love the chemistry between Mastroianni and Loren. The comedy is fantastic and the plot twists are an absolute delight.
