Movie synopsis
The rubber-faced Roberto Benigni, Italy's most beloved slapstick comic, stars in THE MONSTER as Loris, a bumbling con man whose everyday activities consist of shoplifting from the local supermarket and preventing anyone from buying the apartment he is squatting in. Suspected of being a vicious rapist, he is seduced by a voluptuous female cop (Nicoletta Braschi, Benigni's wife in real life) who hopes to overstimulate his sexual urges and catch him in the act of committing a crime. A comedy of misidentification like Benigni's box-office smash JOHNNY STECCHINO, THE MONSTER features Benigni doing his best imitation of the innocent everyman pioneered by Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Whether it's dropping a cigarette down his pants or dealing with an out-of-control chain saw, Benigni is all arms, legs, and statically charged hair. Once censured by the pope, Benigni pushes the edge in risqu� scenes with his wife, who spends much of the movie gamely thrusting her pelvis and chest in front of Loris. THE MONSTER is a great introduction to a comic whose jokes, it is said, contributed to the downfall of an Italian prime minister.

A Solid Italian Comedy That Will Make You Laugh

While Roberto Beginni may not be everyone's cup of tea, most will surely enjoy this Italian comedy of errors. There are plenty of good site gags and a better than average story line. If you enjoyed Johnny Steccino and Tiger in The Snow, you will probably get a good thrill from The Monster. While it is clearly not as funny as Steccino, it is a good second serving of Beginni's comic talents. This is not a great comedy, but if you like Beginni's humor it is pretty good.
