About Checco

Checco Zalone is said to have been born on Friday 3 June 1977, which would make him 40 years, 5 months and 21 days old (if this date is accurate and he is alive today).

This is the fourth of Checco's movie that we watched. Even though the machine-translated subtitles were awful, it made us laugh the most, perhaps because it was the most raw. The movie follows a not-so-young man from the South of Italy who moves to Milan (in the North) to try his luck as a singer. The script cashes in on the stereotype of ignorant southerners vs. snobbish northerners, and it works. (Last viewed: September 2017)

Thanks to some string-pulling, an incompetent security guard obtains a job with the Catholic church. An attractive would-be terrorist of Arab origins selects him as the perfect vehicle to carry explosives into a monument.

This movie was a great excuse to showcase caricatures of Italian national traits. I'm sure some of the regional nuances were lost on me, but I laughed a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed the humor. The funniest Italian comedy I'd seen in a while.

The weakest part is the poster, which, incredibly, does not show Checco's female counterpart. (Last viewed: August 2017)

A man who has a job for life in regional government is sent from place to place as the central administration tries everything to make him accept ever more alluring offers for early retirement. This was a great surprise—I love foreign comedies that are easy to follow while revealing lots about the local culture. Apparently as of this movie's release Checcho Zalone had become a dominant figure in contemporary Italian comedy. I'll be sure to check out his other works. (Last viewed: August 2017)

      wikipedia | who was involved?

A nearly-bankrupt door-to-door salesman who has promised to take his son on a vacation gets "adopted" by a wealthy crowd where his rough manners work wonders. Not much will surprise you in this classic fish-out-of-water scenario. I laughed a couple of times, but the script isn't nearly as tight or pleasant as in Checco's two subsequent movies, Que Bella Giornata and Quo Vado. (Last viewed: August 2017)
