Quotes

Il Cattivissimo: [to Ursus and Smilzo] Idiots! Fools! Imbeciles! I don't know what keeps me from hanging you! I want to know where she found that gold! I want it, I want it, I want it! Get a brain, you dogs! Understand! And do a little bit of thinking, too!
[He swallows several pills]
Il Cattivissimo: Now!
Smilzo: Boss... by tomorrow you will know everything... I have an excellent idea.
Il Cattivissimo: Spit it out!
[Smilzo spits on the ground]
Smilzo: Let's get help from the lovely Esmeralda.
Il Cattivissimo: Esmeralda? Uh... what do you mean?
Smilzo: I mean that women know how to talk to men.

The funniest parody of western ever made
7 December 1999 | by cflavSee all my reviews

I don't need to spend many words in praise of this work. Just watch it and enjoy the countless wits and funny situations which make this movie unique and delightful to see even 30 years after its release. Bozzetto shows you how to create a master-work out of good ideas and little money. Clearly this is a cartoon aimed to adults for its humor based on mocking "western" stereotypes, something that requires at least some knowledge of the matter. Definitely a cult movie.
