Three friends leave Milan by car heading south. Two of them are married to two sisters and the third one is about to marry the third sister. The wedding will take place in their vulgar but very rich father-in-law's villa. They're also bringing him a work of modern art: a wooden leg worth millions even if it doesn't look like it. The journey is eventful: the groom-to-be falls in love with another woman; the leg is lost to a team of Moroccan footballer players and then returned; and the old man's dog gets lost. The father-in-law gets angrier and angrier, and when they finally reach the villa, he is waiting for them with a shotgun in his hands.. —Salvatore Santangelo <email@example.com>
One of the funniest films ever!
Aldo, Giacomo and Giovanni have to deliver an original Garpetz to a Maffia boss who is gonna be the father-in-law of one of the guys. A Garpetz? Garpetz is a famous sculptor...a VERY funny road movie with several intermezzi develops. At one time, Aldo, the Southern Italian, has a hilarious dream in which he is Dracula and the other guys are Northern Italian Leghisti (separatists). In the beginning, there is a meta-film in which Pulp Fiction is satirized. And there's also a love story in the mix: Giacomo falls in love with Chiara, who sees the Garpetz (it's a leg out of wood, the boss says: "My carpenter could've made it better!")and says: "Ma questo e' un Garpetz!" ("But this is a Garpetz!")The guys wonder: how did she find out? Until Giovanni comes up with the solution: "Se e' un Garpetz, e' una merda!" Don't miss this movie....neo-realism, too, is burlesqued in another meta-film....
