      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell is a charming reminder of what movie comedies used to be like. Rated: 3/4 Dec 6, 2004 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The longer this farce goes on, the more forced and unfunny become the gags. Rated: C Oct 17, 2007 Full Review Susan Granger www.susangranger.com Rated: 3/5 Aug 8, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      steve d Supposed comedy with a embarrassing premise. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I think "Mama, Mia!" borrowed quite liberally from this charming little comedy. 20 years later after the American occupation of Italy, Gina Lollobrigida convinces three GIs who may be the father of her now adult daughter to visit Italy and to support her financially. Phil Silvers, Peter Lawford andTelly Savalas (who's usually pretty serious and actually good at comedy) play the now much older and now married GIs, who all have been sending Lollobrigida money for years. Shelley Winters and Lee Grant play two of the wives. Although the subject is a bit bawdy, the humor is something of throwback that I easily could have seen coming done by Preston Sturges. Riz Ortolani provides the music. Overall, it's a pretty light but enjoyable comedy. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Found this movie to be very entertaining. Full of humor and involved a plot that could actually happen. I would definately reccomend this to any fan of classic movies and it has a great cast. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Gina is extremely sexy in this movie, and very funny. Great Italian style movie.
