Before you purchase this movie know that it is an Americanized version of the original film that has been chopped up and reassembled into a "G" rated variation of the foreign film. Picture quality is okay, sound is good, format is view-able. Not the original film so for my money not worth the purchase price.

This DVD has a major defect. The movie has 11 chapters, but after chapter 10, the movie stops playing and returns to the DVD menu. That means to see the ending and the credits, you have to hit chapter skip or fast forward. The chapter select screen lists only chapters 1-10, so apparently someone didn't realize that the final scene was two chapters. This really takes away from the impact of the ending. Also, both discs in this 2-disc set are labeled "Director's Cut" (the theatrical version is on one of them, however). Hopefully Raro will correct these issues soon.

The movie itself is a sexy and funny romp with a shocking and brutal ending (in the director's cut) that comes out of left field. It really is like watching an "American Pie" sequel that turns into "Saw" (or, more accurately, "Last House on the Left") at the end. Squeamish viewers beware! The theatrical version is dubbed in English and is shorn of the violent finale.

Daryl Loomis, DVD Verdict --If nothing else, To Be Twenty shares one thing in common with essentially every Italian comedy I've seen--it's not funny. I'm sure there are cultural things at play that I don't understand, and the Italians take the classical comedy/tragedy dichotomy much more seriously than other countries do, but I still didn't laugh a single time, not even the briefest of chuckles. In fact, there are only two reasons to watch this movie and their names are Gloria Guida and Lilli Carati. It's not for their acting skills, though, far from it, but they have plenty of other attributes which help to pass the time. They are truly a formidable duo of Seventies hotness, but beyond that, we're left with Italian men in bad pants and a disco soundtrack that's amusing in how it grates on the ears.

The fact that Raro included both cuts in their two-disc package does make for an interesting comparison, even if it does force multiple viewings of the film. When To Be Twenty had its original theatrical run, people weren't exactly expecting the film to pan out as it does. They left the theater unhappy and did not return, despite its popular and marketable stars. It was almost immediately pulled from circulation and returned to the editing room where they stripped off the ending, repurposed some footage from the middle, and pulled some film off the cutting room floor to make a new, altogether bland non-finish to end the film. Ten minutes shorter, they returned it to the cinema where, go figure, it still made no money. This shows that, while audiences may not like to have their expectations for a genre defied, they also won't take badly assembled, incoherent garbage. As a result, with nothing but its hot stars to sell it, To Be Twenty was left in Nowheresville.
