So, THIS is my favourite Bud Spencer movie
27 December 2003 | by (Budapest, Hunagry) – See all my reviews

I used to watched about 100 times this film, and I'll never forget the Firpo brothers, Nynfus and his band (especially Bugsy), the blonde girl and Parapolis with his broken nose. Great characters, memorable quotes, good music, and the funniest Bud Spencer & Terence Hill film of all time. If you like these Italian movies, don't miss it. This film was my favourite film when I was young. If you had already seen this movie, come on, watch it again nostalgically.
