Although the producers did not intend for all this hilarity, I'm sure, but imagine casting Lola Falana as an American singer, which makes sense, but then DUBBING her voice with an obviously Italian voice pretending to sound American, and even pretending to sound American when she is speaking Italian....
The studio over-dubbing also leaves much to be desired, in the best tradition of Chinese martial arts movies, and the stilted acting and direction totally shatters the contrived drama, which makes it a great piece of fluff.
On the plus side is the totally 60's feel with lots of groovy almost-naked Italian guys and gals parading around in their skimpy bathing suits, and the gorgeous Italian scenery of course.
