Editors Note
Note A classic account of the misadventures of a group of amateurish crooks. The hapless and bungling group of burglars try to break into a store from an apartment next door -- only to find they've drilled through a wall to another room in the same apartment. Each thief comes to the job with a distraction, and the gang's technical expert, who proffers an elaborate burglary lecture, retires to the bathroom when it comes time to do the actual work. After this arduous all-night heist attempt, dawn breaks and they all decide to go home.

ReviewSource Chicago Reader
Review One of the funniest Italian comedies ever made... Monicelli's sense of character is priceless, and his fabulous cast--including Marcello Mastroianni, Vittorio Gassman, Claudia Cardinale and Renago Salvatori--make the most of it!
