Storyline

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.

Trivia

Terence Hill and Bud Spencer play characters mistaken for spies in this spy spoof. Similarly, in their next movie, Trinity: Good Guys and Bad Guys (1985), the two play secret agents who go undercover as policemen. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1 min) The helicopter seen is a Bell 206 Jet Ranger, which is equipped with a turbo-shaft engine (a form of jet engine / gas turbine, optimized to produce shaft power, rather than jet thrust). But when the engine starts, the sound of a piston engine can be heard instead. See more »

And I sir, am the bun!
20 May 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Bus Spencer & Terence Hill aren't well known in the United Kingdom and this is a shame as their work deserves to be seen by a wider audience. A nice mix of sight gags, slapstick and inventive fight scenes, it's closer to an Italian version of a Jackie Chan comedy than any western comedy duo.

Go For It unites the drifter Rosco (Hill) with fresh-out-of-jail Doug (Spencer). Within the first 10 minutes they've beaten the occupants of a highway diner and stolen a truck. 10 minutes later, they're mistaken for two CIA operatives and despatched to Miami to infiltrate the mysterious K1's organisation.

The script and budget of this film are well above their usual low-budget set-pieces, but what really makes these films shine are the stars. Hill's smooth-talking, fist-fighting charmer is the perfect counterpart to Spencer's hulking laid-back bruiser. If you've never seen them fight a group of Euro-villains, this is a good one to start with. Much of the pleasure comes from seeing Bud Spencer delivering one of his trademark slaps - a slap from a man that size HAS to hurt and the ringing sound effects foleyed in are a nice departure from the usual gunshot-type sound effect.

Posing a rich Texan millionaires and in possession of a million dollars, these two wreak havoc across Miami. My favourite scene is the delivery of Spencer's burger; the sequence is surreal enough to have been lifted from a Leone western and will have you in stitches.

If you like this film I'd also recommend 'Double Trouble', possibly their finest film. 'Go For It' remains a close second and a fine reminder that if there's no chemistry, no amount of stunts or CGI will make your film work. The right team, however unlikely the pairing, will turn any ordinary film into a memorable one.
