About this product
- DescriptionThe Marx Brothers meet THE GODFATHER when the bumbling Dante (Roberto Benigni) discovers that there's nothing organized about organized crime in this hilarious tale of mistaken identity. A naive schoolbus driver, Dante finally meets the passionate woman of his dreams; unfortunately, she only wants him for his body--his dead body. Dante doesn't realize he looks just like mobster Johnny Stecchino and that femme fatale Maria (Nicoletta Braschi) is setting him up to be the victim of a hit so that she and husband Johnny can escape the crime world. The dim-witted innocent doesn't catch on fast; every time a round of gunfire goes off, Dante thinks he's being hunted for shoplifting a banana. JOHNNY STECCHINO reveals why Benigni has become Italy's most popular film comedian. Like Buster Keaton in 1934's LE ROI DE CHAMPS-ELYSEE or Charlie Chaplin in 1921's THE IDLE CLASS, Benigni hams it up playing two roles, seamlessly slipping back and forth between hapless Dante and the murderous Johnny Stecchino.

Lightweight with no much entertainment
I have bought other movies from Roberto Benigni, but this one isn't as funny as I was expecting , with the exception of few clips.
