He isn't changed by his marriage and still looks for women, with his friends, when and where they can find them. He even tries to seduce the wife of his boss and is fired. After each episode, Sandra forgives him. He and his friends of similar temperament are content to be idle, chase girls and leave the work and job-hunting to others. After spending the night away from home with a girl, Sandra cannot forgive anymore and runs off with their child. Fausto and his friends search all over for them, fearing the worst.Written by

The part for 'Sergio Natali' was originally offered to the great Italian director, 'Vittorio de Sica'. He politely declined as he was concerned that the character's homosexuality might mark the director himself as a homosexual. See more »
When Sandra is called up to receive the 'Miss Mermaid' sash, she is on the left of the screen, to the right of the compere. As the actress comes up to present the sash, Sandra is seen standing on the compere's left. But when the actress presents the sash, Sandra is back on the left, to the right of the compere. See more »

Hilarious and fits into recent slacker genre
I can't believe this film is also known as The Young and Passionate ... it would be better named The Middle-aged and Slack!
This film is a hilarious look at the lives of a bunch of "young" and completely useless men who still live at home with their mothers avoiding jobs, commitment, or real life.
If you enjoyed Slackers, Clerks, Go, and the like, you may well enjoy this film as it fits in well with this genre.
The Vitelloni (I don't know what this means but I suspect it means "COMPLETE SLACKERS") wander around town talking about their plans to write the great novel, get married, get a job, etc etc etc but instead tend to end up wearing silly hats and falling over drunk.
And it's set in a pretty Italian town, so what more could you want?
