Hill and Spencer again , this time replacing two Brazilian billionaires who look exactly like them
10 February 2012 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Funny Hill-Spencer film with humor, joyful, mirth and amusement . It's an entertaining film with the notorious duo posing as millionaires in sunny Rio and full of abundant kicks , punches , leaps and bounds . The picture deals with ours intimate friends , Terence Hill and Bud Spencer and they both find out that are inseparable partners taking on numerous adventures . This action/comedy deals with Greg Wonder (Bud Spencer) and Elliot Vance (Terence Hill) , two characters utterly different . Wonder is a bouncing man recently out prison who plays saxophone at a jazz bar in New Orleans , while Vance is an adventurer who pilots little aircrafts . Both of whom are hired by a secret organization to replace two soft-spoken millionaire cousins named Antonio (Spencer) and Bastiano (Hill) De Coimbra living in Brazil and who look exactly like them . The friends learn their effeminate and cocky manners , training themselves for replacing and wearing elegant Brazilian clothes. At the end takes place an amusing confrontation among Hill-Spencer , theirs shy doubles against a group of well-armed mercenaries .

The film contains action , fist-play , humor with tongue-in-cheek and is pretty bemusing . It's an entertaining film with enjoyable comedy in the wake of Trinity and Bambino , both of them playing a double character . The big time duo from Spahetti Western wrapped in humor as ¨They call me Trinity ¨ and its following as ¨Trinity is still my name¨ and ¨Trouble makers¨ were run out and then they're transfered to Police and action genre . As they played the Miami series which are set in Florida , such as ¨Miami Supercops¨, ¨Crime Busters¨, and ¨Superfuzz¨ . This time Miami is substituted by Rio De Janeiro , as the picture shows typical images from Rio as the usual Christ of Corcovado , Samba parades and of course the famous Carnaval . In Europe these movies are shown on TV very frequently and are part of growing up on children and adolescents , however in USA are quite unknown . They're plenty of humor and based on diverse personality and physical differences among them . This one packs silly comedy , tongue-in-cheek, slapstick and the habitual struggles neither blood , nor violence, besides including some pursuits . Agreeable casting with a likable Terence Hill and a grumpy Bud Spencer , playing amusingly their customary roles as always. There appears the nasty Nello Pazzafini , an ordinary from Peplum and Spahetti , though isn't Ricardo Pizzuti, Hill-Spencer's habitual antagonist and whom receives the knocks and kicks . Adequate and colorful cinematography By Silvano Ippoliti , Sergio Corbucci's usual . Commercial , jolly musical score by Micolizzi , including Samba songs and in Guido and Mauricio De Angelis style . The motion picture is professionally directed by Enzo Barboni or E. B. Clucher . He was a prestigious cameramen including classic Spaghetti Western ( Django, Goobye Texas , Hellbenders ), but with the hit of ¨Trinity is my name¨ left it and turned to film-making , and directed the sequel ¨Trinity is still my name¨ and the third outing ¨Trinity and Bambino, the legend lives on¨, plus other Hill and Spencer vehicles in solitary as ¨Renegado Jim¨, ¨Even angels eat beans¨ and ¨El Magnifico¨ . The film is absolutely hilarious for Hill and Spencer enthusiasts and ranks among their less famous but most representative ones ; a must see for all their fans. Rating : Mediocre but entertaining .
