When Eliot Vance and Greg Wonder are talking in a soccer stadium, they are with the "Vasco da Gama" crowd. After the the goal (footage) they all cheer. But that goal happened in the 1984 Brazilian Soccer Championship final (May,24 1984 at Maracanã Stadium, Rio de Janeiro) made by Vasco's oponent team: "Fluminense". See more »

Hill and Spencer again , this time replacing two Brazilian billionaires who look exactly like them
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 .
