despite a decent performance of the great Aldo Fabrizi, and an average performance of the average Renato Rascel, this is a movie that one will hardly remember. Renato Rascel comes back to Italy from USA after 30 years, only to discover that he has to serve the military service. He joins the army under Marshal Aldo Fabrizi, and tries all sort of tricks to escape the service and keep running his commercial business of imported good from USA, while Fabrizi chases him to bring him back to duty. A love story between Rascel's daughter and Fabrizi's son bring the two in a closer friendship. The only relevant fact in this movie is the presence of Mario Girotti who will later become very famous as Terence Hill.
