After his fishing boat is "periscoped", ex US footballer Bulldozer docks in an Italian port, where local criminals and American soldiers fight each other. Locals discover Bulldozer's talents and challenge the Yanks to a football game.
The "Bulldozer", a former football star, is now working as a fisherman. As a group of street-people arranges a football match against the local Armybase, he is asked to be their trainer. His boat was damaged by a submarine and he currently has no work, so he agrees.Written by

But American Football, not the one that we call Football in Europe (which would be the one they call soccer in America). Now I very likely had seen this as a kid, like I did many other movies starring Bud Spencer (his not Italian name, I had no clue what nationality he was, since everything was dubbed in Germany) - many with his partner in crime Terence Hill (also not his Italian name). In this case the movie only stars Bud Spencer, but he is enough fun - no pun intended.
The movie is quite the throwback to my childhood and was a nice watch overall, but I would understand if some felt it hasn't aged too well. Not much story, a lot of shenanigans and so forth. But the charisma of Bud really elevates this to a degree that should help most to just have fun with it.
