Some funny scenes, but painfully labored storytelling
3 March 2005 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

"Odds And Evens" is not one of the best films of the Bud Spencer-Terence Hill team. There are some funny scenes (Terence pretending to be an amateur at playing cards, Bud explaining what happens to him when somebody wakes him up abruptly, Bud's encounter with a drunk truck driver), and the final showdown takes place on a boat that hosts a small casino - needless to say, the boys make full use of its props. But the storytelling is labored, tiresome and naive; the 111-minute running time is way too much for a movie of this type. If more gags were as witty as the last one, we'd be onto something here.
