sorry for the mistakes!
Last scenes in Cortina d’Ampezzo. "Why not tie us also with
Vacanze di Natale?" Will have think Castellano & Pipolo that wrote
the screenplay and especially Jerry Calà, behind the whole
project. As the latter says in an interview for "Stracult",
"Abbronzatissimi" is born after an important "market" hit by Vittorio
Cecchi Gori, who stole the comedian from a competitor, that is, Aurelio
De Laurentiis. The first ones went bankrupt and the second bought
Napoli Calcio, just to underline who knows the market. However, the
good Jerry, offers a film made with friends and ready to play with the
competition in the Christmas period. His idea, his friends, but
direction ends up to Bruno Gaburro who also signs the sequel.
Without this premise it is useless to say that we find ourselves in a
holiday film with the usual dynamics: cross stories, tits, jokes,
misunderstandings, with the aim of achieving the model and success of
"Rimini, Rimini" from which they also copy the location.
As bad as we can talk about this film of 1991, it must be said that
Jerry Calà had seen right, because the revenue speak clearly and
tell us about a commercial success, driven by a very popular cast.
The first on the list is him, the King of the genre, Jerry Calà,
who plays himself, that is a famous and beloved pianobar singer, who is
seduced by Aurora with the sole intent to kill her husband. On the
sidelines, he is chased by a girl who tries to kill him with the
Voodoo. Aurora is played by Alba Parietti, the coscialunga (we must say
the long legs) of Italian television, here still not redone and
therefore beautiful, although far from any link with a decent acting.
Teo Teocoli and Mauro Di Francesco, other famous comedians, are two
spies who pretend to be rich. They park their caravan in the parking
lot of the Grand Hotel and went in all the most exclusive places. Among
these, we must mention the Manuel’s club, interpreted by the
legendary Guido "Dogui" Nicheli. The two try to conquer some girls, but
end up being cheated and robbed by Gaspare (Enio Drovandi) who offers
them an appointment with Fiorella and Monica, played by Sonia Grey, the
sexy nurse of "Striscia la notizia" and by Monika Rebel a 'interesting
meteor of Italian TV, also end in Playmen.
Nathalie Caldonazzo, almost debut, is Isabella, a girl who falls in
love with the city's black doctor, played by Salvatore Marino. The
problem is that her parents (Arnaldo Ninchi and Mariangela Giordano)
are two racists.
And finally there is Elide (Eva Grimaldi), a prostitute in love with
her protector Marcellino (the current "Moretti" symbol, Pier Maria
Cecchini) who mistreats her and uses for gain some money. Willy (Franco
Oppini) is the owner of the hotel where the two stay and fall in love
with Elide, happily closing the story.
Although mocking movies like "Guess who's coming to dinner" and "Pretty
Woman" (whose eponymous song by Roy Orbison resonates to exhaust the
viewer) "Abbronzatissimi" finds the right mathematical formula to catch
the audience. Important comic name and beauty by their side.
A perfect formula that does not involve stories, all of which are not
very interesting. From the most silly events of Elide, which after a
while 'are annoying, to move to Teocoli and Di Francesco who do nothing
but scream each other’s, ending with the "non-acting" of the
couple Calà-Parietti, in which check Renato Cecchetto , the only
one who creates a credible character. The only ones who are saved from
this are Salvatore Marino and Nathalie Caldonazzo, even if, as
mentioned, the idea is not new, the two slip away well, with the words
and the verve of Marino who has as shoulder an excellent Nathalie
Caldonazzo and above all Arnaldo Ninchi.
