Heartwarming, very funny movie.
23 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Little Cary Guffey from Spielberg's "Close Encounters" plays here an extra-terrestrial kid who got beamed down on Earth by mistake, and meets with Bud Spencer who, as any good sci-fi cop, doesn't believe the kid and thinks he's only pulling his legs. He will make up his mind pretty quickly, and will side with the little kid, while the army tries everything to snatch the alien. The story offers many standard moments for Bud Spencer's punch-fight trademark scenes, and even if very naive, the story is good for more than a few laughs and a very satisfying ending. The Oliver Onions' sountrack (Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis) doubles the pleasure. It's not Frank Capra, but it's a good movie for the whole family.
