Dumb Italian slapstick
18 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

This goofy Italian slapstick comedy was obviously made to capitalize on the kung-fu craze of the early 70's. Though released in the U.S. under the title "Hercules Against Karate", there's no Hercules to be seen here. It concerns two Americans, a blond babyface and his big, burly lunkhead sidekick who woo two pretty young ladies in Hong Kong while fending off high-kicking bad guys and sumo wrestlers (don't ask). There's an irritating cute kid and some toilet humor. It all resembles a Bud Spencer/Terrence Hill film, but minus Hill and Spencer.
