Mason is driving a truck when he takes on his lorry Rosco a hitchhiker. Traffic police stop them for a control but they are confused for two robbers. They manage to escape in a very strange way from this situation, but just to fall in a worse one. They run to the airport trying to take the first flight available. The couple not only succeeds to have a free flight to Miami but someone give them a bag full of million dollars. Later Rosco and Mason will understand that this time they were confused for two secret agents but it is too late, now they are too deeply involved in the situation. Obviously a funny situation.

Bud Spencer and Terence Hill try their hand at the "spy spoof" genre, with so-so results. The set-up of the story is pretty promising, with an elaborate series of events that leads to Bud & Terence being mistaken for top-class CIA agents and sent to pose as eccentric Texas millionaires at a superlux Miami hotel that is suspected to be also a hideout for criminal elements. The film is well-produced and has some unexpectedly smart surreal gags (the most memorable probably being the public restroom doubling as a transportation chamber!). Unfortunately, there are also a few too many sluggish stretches for a 105-minute movie. This is probably one of the most plot-driven Hill & Spencer films, and it has fewer fight scenes than usual, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your preferences. The only standout in the supporting cast is the Amazonian Faith Minton, playing a henchwoman. Overall a pleasant, very watchable, but only occasionally funny film. ** out of 4.
