Storyline

Through an improbable series of events and an impossibly bungled supermarket hold-up, down on their luck con men Matt and Wilbur find themselves working with the Miami police force. As they patrol the streets of the city, their main job becomes trying to break the hold of the city's street gangs, including one group of teens in old movie-gangster style clothes, led by a kid named Geronimo who dresses in full Indian warrior regalia. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Largely unfunny and it has aged badly
29 December 2014 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

My rating: 3.5/10

My opinion on the film:

This Italian buddy film is largely unfunny and it has aged badly. I'm not even sure whether it was actually amusing when it came out, though. The use of slapstick was too cartoonish and devoid of laughs, and it was very amateurishly shot in basically every regard. However, I was far from hating it. Regardless of how dumb and bad it was, it might be argued that it had some slight charm and that it was good-natured at the bottom, which at least didn't make it boring. For better or worse, leading actors Terence Hill and Bud Spencer really seemed to try to make funny things that weren't and, maybe because of them, the whole movie wasn't something despicable.
