It is a small caper about small-time thieves who live in a poor neighborhood. It is often funny, sympa and didn't bore me for a moment. However, since it is a comedy, one might find it hilarious, while another might find it boring.
There are two great, legendary Italian actors in the cast; Vittorio Gassman and Marcelo Mastroianni. Generally positive reactions both from the critics and the audience. A modest reputation in its genre. A Silver Seashell in San Sebastian International Film Festival and a nomination for Best Foreign Language movie in Oscars (which is the only one in the blog so far). Being voted as one of the 'The 50 Greatest Comedies of All Time' by Premiere. Being the inspiration of a Broadway Musical (Big Deal). I believe, you have enough reasons to give a shot, especially since you are in a robbery & heist movies blog. I absolutely didn't regret.
