Fun, fun, fun...
6 December 2000 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Just like the "Beach Boys" use to sing, watching this movie is fun, fun, fun from the start till the end... Ferdinando Baldi guessed right making it. He found the clones of Terence Hill & Bud Spencer, (the Italian Michael Coby and the American Paul Smith), and just made a Trinity-style film. Funny situations, lots of punches and cuffs and a very good music by Bixio & Tempera make this film worth watching. Just in case you´re wondering, the following film that was made almost by the same cast and crew: "Carambola filotto...tutti in bucca" is just as funny as this one so don´t miss any of them!!...
