In this fantasy-comedy about a reporter who sees tomorrow before it happens, Catello Coppola (Italian comic Maurizio Micheli) is a gossip-columnist belittled at his office, and his good friend Paolino (Adolfo Belletti) is a men's-room attendant at a large hotel. Alas, Paolino is not long for this world, though his communication with Catello is not impeded by any barrier imposed by the Great Beyond. Since their association has been cultivated in a men's room, Catello soon discovers that whenever he gets the urge to use those facilities, he finds a written message on the wall that gives him the next day's celebrity news. Armed with tomorrow's gossip today, he quickly becomes the toast of the town. Pulled off with wit, comic acuity, and a smattering of low-brow bathroom humor, this remake and re-interpretation of René Clair's It Happened Tomorrow is an entertaining, fast-paced comedy.
