8/10
Unforgettable Hill/Spencer flick.
MarKus-37121 May 2001
Terence Hill and Bud Spencer have portrayed EVERYTHING. Crooks,pirates,cops,cowboys etc. In this movie they play Priests who sell pepper and coffe on a large boat in europe, while at the same time they preach thier religious teachings. Hillarious fight sequences, funny one-liners, great theme song...this is a must for "Trinity" fans. It may not be the very best of Hill and Spencer but it's up there with thier good films, such as "I'm for the Hipppotamus" and "Who finds a friend, finds a Treasure!" My vote 7/10

Our two friends as friars helping a mistreated community slaved by a villain governor
ma-cortes9 July 2011
This time Terence Hill and Bud Spencer as adventurer missionaries in South America. Likable Terence Hill and stocky Bud Spencer team up again as the valiant duo . The agreeable crew makes a new adventure movie plenty of fist-play , action and entertainment , though only for Hill and Spencer fans. This amusing film deal with ours intimate friends in South America , they're nowadays two missionaries , the blue-eyes and sympathetic Terence Hill and the grumpy and goofy Bud Spencer as Father Pedro . They live on a South American island as priests of a diverse community with multiple problems . The friars aboard a boat going to Maracaibo to get and sell goods . There happen several adventures and silly struggles against nasties . Meanwhile they go to the bishop (Jacques Herlin) palace to obtain funds for his village . Then Spencer steals the bishop's ring and and goes to Maracaibo Casino to play roulette and get money .The argument involves the two Fathers fighting a nasty governor (Robert Loggia) who mistreats natives and utilize them as slaves . Of course, they will combat thieves ,thugs and criminals .

The 'big time' duo of Spaghetti Western with humor such as ¨They call me Trinity¨, ¨ Trinity is still my name ¨ and sequels as ¨Troublemakers¨ were run out and for that reason are transfered in modern era film , playing the police/action genre and adventures as ¨All the way boys¨ or ¨Plane crazy¨ ,¨Who finds a friend, finds a treasure¨, ¨I am for Hippopotamus¨ and ¨Two missionaries¨ . After that , they starred the successful ¨ Miami police series ¨, which belong the following : ¨Crime Busters¨ , ¨Superfuzz¨ and ¨supercops in Miami¨. The movie contains silly comedy , the usual slight fights and a little bit action including some bemusing scenes .The humor is based on physical and personality differences of the protagonists , as Terence Hill is the sympathetic and brave hero and Bud Spencer is the corpulent and hunk man. As always several humorous struggles with no blood , neither violence . Enjoyable performance of Jean-Pierre Aumont in a brief role , a veteran French actor who worked in Hollywood with a long and prestigious career ; furthermore the notorious secondary American Robert Loggia and Jacques Herlin still today working as his successful role also as priest in ¨Of Gods and Men¨. And of course ,Riccardo Pizzuti, an ordinary support actor in the most part of Hill and Spencer films . Acceptable cinematography by Gabor Pogany , a prestigious cameraman who photographed successes as ¨Two women¨ , ¨Joan of Arc¨ , ¨Valdez is coming¨ and several others. Commercial musical score by the usual Guido and Maurizio De Angelis , including catching songs .

The motion picture financed by the great producer Dini De Laurentiis is regularly directed by Franco Rossi . He was a craftsman who directed some films as ¨A rose for everyone, Virginity , Calypso ¨and expert on historical TV mini series as ¨Bambino named Jesus¨, ¨Quo Vadis¨, ¨The young Garibaldi¨ , ¨Eneida¨ , ¨Odyssea¨ among others. Rating : Average but entertaining . The flick will appeal to famous pair fans.
