Trivia

This film was the subject of a civil case in the United States, Smith v. Montoro, 648 F.2d 602 (1981). In the case, actor Paul Smith alleged that he had acted in the leading role, and had a contract granting him star billing. However, when the film was distributed in the U.S. his name was stripped from the film, and "Bob Spencer" was listed as the star in advertising and the film credits. Though a federal court of appeals (Ninth Circuit) granted Smith standing to sue the filmmakers, it is unknown how the case was finally settled. See more »

It's like anti-stress green pill :).
2 August 2008 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

I like more:

"Non c'è due senza quattro", "Lo chiamavano Trinità" or "Altrimenti ci arrabbiamo".

This film is filled heavy with jokes too, but the story is, in comparison of the top three movies, very poor.

What i like on this film is, that it create nice positive atmosphere.

I'd like time to time watch this pair of castaways which doing absolutely bad everything :). It's good film to push you little up and take the stress away. No one may be bigger looser without any money then this two guys. They will never make some big money (and if they will, ... :) ).

This old film isn't top in this times, but it's like anti-stress green pill :). Take it :) (and don't forget to watch the three films, about which i wrote at the beginning!).
