Too Bad She's Bad Photos

Movie Info

How did Lina Stroppiani (Sophia Loren) and Paolo (Marcello Mastroianni) meet? The buxom blonde stole Paolo's cab -- literally. The taxi driver's efforts to bring her to justice lead nowhere. Enraged and smitten, Paolo investigates, and discovers that Lina comes from a long line of con artists, including her respectable-looking father, Vittorio (Vittorio De Sica). For Paolo, the only way to reform Lina without becoming one of her victims seems clear: marry her and join the family.

Audience Reviews for Too Bad She's Bad

  • Nov 29, 2010
    In "Too Bad She's Bad," Lina(Sophia Loren), Toto(Michael Simone) and Peppino(Giorgio Sanna) hire Paolo(Marcello Mastroianni), a taxi driver, for the day for 8000 lire to drive them to the beach, so they can go skinnydipping.(Calm down! You're drooling on the keyboard.) While Paolo is chatting up Lina, the guys try to steal his cab but are foiled by the car's alarm. They escape but not before the mudguard is damaged. Paolo tries to get Lina to lead him to them but she gets away. However, they soon run into each other again, this time going back to her place where they meet Vittorio(Vittorio De Sica), her father who has a thing for suitcases, especially empty ones. "Too Bad She's Bad" is a very good, very funny and delightful screwball comedy that gives new meaning to trying to make an honest woman out of somebody. It was made at a time when Italy had finally recovered from World War II and was on the move again, with tourists aplenty which makes it perfect for any amount of chicanery. This brings up quite a bit of generational conflict as Paolo looks down on the kids for not working hard while Vittorio looks down on them for not knowing how to steal correctly. I read on TCM.com that this was the first pairing between Loren and Mastroianni and already they have a great chemistry working together with him playing the straight man to her character out to prove that there is more to her than simply her physical assets. That having been said, Vittorio De Sica nearly steals the movie out from under them, playing a different kind of crook than the one he would play in "General Della Rovere." Now, if somebody could only explain what the waiter is doing in the police station, I'll be all set.
