Review: Nobody thought that Mario Mattoli could make a good movie, not even him. This is the reason why we aren’t surprised to see the usual TotÚ and the usual Fabrizi embroiled in a funny story where wisecracks are in half incomprehensible since everybody competes to shout more. L'Avanti, Rome, the 20th of August 1960.

The plot is the pretext to allow the verbal strife, often witty, between the two great actors. You laugh for their mime and their dialogues, always alive and amusing. TotÚ and Fabrizi are strongly committed and they entirely dispense their comic force. Corriere Lombardo, Milan, the 20th of August 1960.
