Plot & Details
The Italian comic Carlo Verdone stars in (and directs and co-authors) this conventional, and unevenly humorous look at Oscar (Verdone), the neighborhood wannabe jock and biker who tries to land a part in a movie. After he is rejected, Oscar exacts revenge by causing a car crash that the producer's insurance has to cover. His plan backfires when the American actress in the film gets canned as a result (she was in the car), and moves in with him until her husband can come from Texas and bring her home. In the meantime, Oscar starts to take a shine to the woman -- even though his phone bills are beginning to take on the size of Texas as Nancy keeps dialing up her husband.
