Alternate Versions

The German DVD re-release from 3L features a shorter (ca. 50 seconds) version than the original release from e-m-s. The reason for this is that the cut re-release was based on an Italian master whereas the original uncut release was based on a German master (this also explains the language differences in the credits).

Great movie for the kids, enjoyable by the ones who... were kids sometime.
12 October 2007 | by c_o_rSee all my reviews

OK, everybody knows more or less what are all the movies of Bud Spencer about, so i'll not try to sell it as a masterpiece. But i still remember it as one of the favorite movies of my childhood. The story is the usual "E.T. meets all kind of humans, some of them very friendly, and others not so friendly", but made in the usual Bud Spencer style. Bud Spencer is the sheriff of a little town in USA, and has to fight with all the bad guys, army, etcetcetc. Funny as hell, the little "remote control" used by the kid was one of the most wanted toys of our times. I saw it recently, and... i still watch it with a smile, despite knowing that is far from being a good movie and also that it aged quite badly.
