Description: Franco and Ciccio are serving at a Satyricon themed party when they are transported back in time to ancient Rome. Ciccio loves very much the novel Satyricon of Petronius Arbiter, although his friend Franco does not understand him. Ciccio also saw the famous Federico Fellini's film about the novel, and he goes with Franco in a country inn, near Rome. The director, seeing the success of the film by Fellini, does furnish the inn in the fashion of ancient Rome. Even the guests and the waiters are dressed to the ancient, and so do Franco and Ciccio, but they break a jar of wine and are hunted. The two fall asleep in a clearing, and wake up in the Rome of the Emperor Nero. Franco and Ciccio risk being killed, and so they're saved just by writer Petronius who hire them as servants. Petronius is the best adviser to Nero, who is scared because he believes that his mother Agrippina wants to kill him. Franco and Ciccio therefore must watch over the life of the emperor, but they soon discover that the killer who wants to murder Nero is not the mother. Satiricosissimo is a 1970 Italian comedy film directed by Mariano Laurenti. It is a parody of the 1969 Federico Fellini film Fellini Satyricon Franchi and Ingrassia play themselves as usual, off to wait tables at a Fellini's Satyricon themed party. Before you can say "don't drop that jug of wine", they 'wake up' way back B.C., still dressed in their little slave outfits. The real mystery here is why they didn't start the film in Roman times in the first place as the pop culture references are not just limited to the supposed time travelers. Still, some of the wittiest jokes involve street signs and sight gags: the first thing we see is a license plate on a cart and wagon. All roads lead to Rome (via footage borrowed from a much more expensive movie) and they immediately save Emperor Nero from food poisoning. Forced to join a spy origination that uses a secret slap in the face instead of a secret handshake, they are dressed as barbarians by their new boss, whom we shall refer to as 'M', and sent off to a tavern for more time misplacement jokes.
