Paparazzi darlings Costantino and Daniele, single-moniker hunks held up as masculine ideals, make their feature debuts in “Too Beautiful,” an irony-free piece of fluff with all the depth of a “Teen Beat” spread. Lacking even a hint of self-parody — title refers to their supposedly flawless features — the guys play themselves as handsome, genial types looking to break into the movies and ward off hordes of lusting women. Sophomore helmer Ugo Fabrizio Giordani throws in enough beefcake shots to attract schoolgirls, but no one else will buy tickets.
Mammas’ boys Costantino (Costantino Vitagliano) and Daniele (Daniele Interrante) become suckers in a scam talent agency’s promise to make them stars, and accept odd jobs to pay for acting lessons given by mousy Michela (Jennifer Poli). Script has an earnest blandness that reigns supreme, with none of the ironic wit that, for example, writer Frank Tashlin once employed for Jayne Mansfield. Costantino, always seen to best advantage when wearing as few clothes as possible, is at least natural on-screen; Daniele maintains a runway model’s stiffness and only relaxes in the outtakes during the final crawl.
