[Jack has accidentally "shot" The Boss's aunt and a bus driver and the three of them are on the run]
What the fuck did you do, Jack? What the *fuck* did you do?

Italian comedy with clever twists. Comedia Italiana con una tramma ben scritto.
The Legend of Al John and Jack is the story of three incompetent gangsters who, having screwed up one time too many, now find themselves running for their lives from their old boss. Not everything in this movie works, but there are a lot of parts that are hilarious. The cursed gun. Convincing the amnesiac that he's an exorcist. And of course "Frankie, we'll let you live if you can answer one question - What is the capital of Birma?" "I don't know! How should I know that?" "Frankie, Frankie, Frankie... You could have said anything and we wouldn't have known any better! No one knows what the capital of Birma is!"
