Synopsis by Mark Deming
A group of students are eager to get an education while on a class trip in this comedy from Italy. Salvatore (Vincenzo Salemme) and Archimede (Massimo Boldi) are two teachers at a private high school for boys who have arranged for their students to travel to Spain for a learning holiday. While Salvatore and Archimede have academics in mind, their charges are more interested in meeting girls and having fun, and when they discover Maggie (Daryl Hannah), an American teacher, is leading a group of female students from a school in California through the same part of Spain, the goal becomes ditching their teachers and having a party with the girls. Meanwhile, Salvatore and Archimede keep getting into hot water of their own, especially after they become romantic rivals, each hoping to win the hand of lovely Maggie. Ole! was released in Italy in time for the Christmas season, an annual tradition for Massimo Boldi comedies (though this project found him paired with Vincenzo Salemme rather than his usual sidekick, Christian De Sica).
