''I Vitelloni'' is a 1953 film directed by Creator/FedericoFellini that deals with a bunch of slackers and their supposedly carefree lives. One of them, Fausto, blows this when he leaves his girlfriend pregnant [[ShotgunWedding and is forced to marry her]]. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t try [[TheCasanova to seduce other women]], though.
Fausto's friends ''try'' to be supportive while keeping their lifestyles: Alberto is supported by his mother and sister, Leopoldo writes a play, Riccardo tries to keep his singing act and Moraldo, Fausto’s brother-in-law, tries to get away from it all.
It was one of Creator/StanleyKubrick's favorite movies.
