Funny, unforgettable comedy.
23 April 2000 | by f.gimenezSee all my reviews

If somebody thinks that all the Bud Spencer films are the same, he or she may be right, due to the fact that almost all of them contain a lot of blows (with the hand and with the fist)...

But that´s not everything in a film starring Bud Spencer. There´s the plot (yes, there´s a plot indeed!!!), there are the other actors, and there´s the perhaps more important element in a movie, the Music.

In this concrete movie, the music is essential to make it amusing and I would dare to say unforgettable... One must watch this film to understand what I´m saying.

The main title track composed by Guido & Maurizio de Angelis, called "Sphinx" is just great!!.

Well, here´s another movie you should not miss.

Believe me...
