  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Une comédie légère et bien enlevée, non dénuée de judicieuses et judiciaires observations sur le "petit" milieu, qui garde une fraîcheur de ton indéniable. Il convient de noter en particulier la finesse de jeu des acteurs et le constant humour teinte de tristesse et de gravité. Un solide classique de la comédie italienne de la fin des années 1950 qui a pourtant pris quelques indéniables rides. www.cinefiches.com

  6. RisuSardonicus's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    "Rubare è un mestiere impegnativo, ci vuole gente seria...mica come voi, voi al massimo potete andare a lavorare."

  7. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Una agradable comedia con un final anecdótico que genera una reflexión referente a una generación conformista y degradada. A pesar de ello, Monicelli no se inclina a promover una continuidad neorrealista. En su historia de un grupo de aspirantes a malhechores existe la redención. Secuencias hilarantes quedan a la memoria: una película mal grabada, el asalto a una tienda o la perforación a una pared.

  8. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

  9. El Biffo's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    If you are looking for a Postwar Italian film that isn't some depressing tragedy with families hocking their bedsheets and starving fishermen or starving women forced into prostitution, this lightweight and silly comedy is just the ticket! I prefer the tragedies but this is great, too. (There actually is a joke about hocking the bedsheets in this film :-)

  12. João Rocha's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

  13. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    "A group of thieves do everything wrong" sounds like a one-joke premise, but Monicelli's way of viewing people and their society is not just hilarious, but rich—jokes come fast with scarcely a dud among them. He also knows the secret of the "screwball crime" subgenre: that we care more about people than we do about property. And he knows that, however silly it gets, that's essentially a political statement.

  14. Dave Corun's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    i liked this little comedy about some morons trying to rob a bank.

  15. Fabio Nosotti's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

  16. Brad Scott's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Fun, but not as hilarious as I had hoped, and didn't quite have enough pace to keep me fully engaged

  17. lauli's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Unbelievably good! Gassmann and Mastroianni are superb. One of the best Italian films I've seen.

  18. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Excellent caper movie all'italiana. Superb all-star cast, full of situations as absurd as hilarious, and the usual caustic view upon italian society and traditions.

  19. Michele Andreoli's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Un voto forse più alto di dieci.

  20. Stu Witmer's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Crazy caper by a gang of stumblebum nincompoops at least one of which can't even tie his shoes. Fine ensemble acting. It's a tribute to the human spirit that comedy can be mined even amid the crumbling, bombed-out ruins of Italy.

  21. Eleanor Abernathy's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

  22. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    A real host of stars: Mastroianni, Salvatori, Cardinale, Gassmann and Toto. A couple of really hilarious scenes and one dramatic moment squeezed in a movie which will make you smile during 100 minutes. Some scenes uncannily made me think of the Woody Allen of SMALL TIME CROOKS for instance. Laughter doesn't seem to know any frontier. highly recommended.

  23. Patricia's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    I loved this movie!!!! I could not stop laughiing when they made the mistake of takeing the wrong wall down! Brillant!

  24. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Big Deal on Madonna Street

    Entertaining comic caper from director Mario Monicelli. Sharply-written with a great cast of colorful characters, superb black and white cinematography, and authentic gritty locations - but it's light on real laughs and occasionally gets bogged down in its subplots. Ultimately, only a minor classic.
