Adriano Celentano (Adriano Celentano) is the latest Italian singing sensation, a superstar who is loved everywhere - but when he and his entourage arrive in Amalfi, they are greeted with nothing but hatred, and Adriano is even shot at. Adriano doesn't even begin to understand, he has never been in Amalfi, has never angered anyone here, doesn't know anyone here. Yet there's a woman, Carmelina (Claudia Mori), who is convinced her baby son Pasqualino is Adriano's, and since she and her family are poor, she just smuggles the baby into Adriano's room, convinced that he will take better care of him. However, faced with the supposed evidence of his alleged cavorting, Adriano still insists everything is a misunderstanding or something, but now he is faced with a whole other problem: His fiancée Emanuela (Donatella Turri) arrives with her father, the cheese baron Mazzoliani (Luigi Pavese), who doesn't approve of his daughter's musician-boyfriend, and now Adriano has to get rid of the baby, but quick. His manager makes multiple attempts to get rid of the baby, but it seems to always somehow return to Adriano, as if it was his bad karma striking back.

But what is really behind the whole story?

Actually, fraudster Cannarulo (Nino Taranto) has found a slow-witted but well-meaning country bumbkin, Peppino who looks exactly like Adriano Celentano (and is thus also played by Adriano Celentano), and now he's touring the countryside, selling him off as the real Celentano to collect money for Celentano appearances they set up, but then they skip town before anybody finds out Peppino is not Celentano in the least (for one, he can't sing). And while they were in Amalfi, Peppino has apparently impregnated Carmelina. Thing is, it slowly dawns upon Peppino that what they're doing is not quite right, and what's more, he has actually and genuinely fallen in love with Carmelina, and now he wants to get back together with her.

Eventually, he does, too, and all that has happened forgotten, she is overly happy to take him back, even though he might not be the real Celentano ... but now the baby's gone, is with the real Celentano. Peppino and Cannarulo promise to get it back ... but then the real Celentano is kidnapped by the Jaguars, a girlgang Cannarulo set up a contract with for a Celentano appearance before skipping another town, and now a concert venue is short one Celentano, and the fake Celentano steps in to save the day ... and creates disaster.

Well, to cut a long story short, everything ends happily in the end, Peppino gets Carmelina, Carmelina gets the baby back, Adriano is able to explain everything to his fiancée and her father gives his blessings to their wedding, and Cannarulo gets his just desserts.

 

This early comedy starring popular singer Adriano Celentano isn't exactly a comedic masterpiece, but it already shows why Celentano, other than many other singers-turned-actors (including Elvis Presley) managed to have a strong going career on both record and screen for some 25 years: He had a certain boyish charm, a natural talent for comedy, and he was never afraid to make fun of himself. Of course, the fact that he does stay away from too obvious jokes here doesn't hurt the film either, and while not great, the film is competently scripted, directed, and features a competent cast.

That all said, you probably won't miss a thing if you don't watch this one, but if you do, you will at least find yourself entertained.
