Wow, that guy is really out of shape!
9 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not only is that guy out of shape, this movie is seriously out of shape.

Now, I love Edwige Fenech , and she certainly shows an increasing acting ability her - she plays two parts - but that is not enough to recommend a film that really goes over the edge with slapstick. I thought at times I was watching the Three Stooges. With the silly Texan, and the stuttering Turk, it was very painful.

Stereotypes of blacks and gays didn't make it any better.

I won't be looking for any more in the policewoman series. I may even skip the schoolteacher series. Just bring me more Giallo. That's where Fenech really shines.
