Editorial Reviews

The action is fast and the laughs are even more furious as Walsh and Matt do all they can to escape being rookie police officers, while accidentally becoming amazing crime fighters. Among the very best of the 18 buddy films that Spencer and Hill starred in, CRIME BUSTERS is one guilty pleasure that should be watched over and over again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excelent print from Somerville House July 27, 2007
By Stiggs
Somerville House has aquired a near perfect print of Crime Busters. Lets hope Somerville House will follow this with more quality Hill/Spencer films. For those of you who dont know Hill and Spencer - Crime Busters is typical - A modest budget, with the general mood of a Tom amd Jerry cartoon, (Hill = Jerry, Spencer = Tom, the bad guys = a multitude of Elmer Fudds). Lots of funny gags, "good natured" fist fights, bean eating, property destruction, and automobile damage. Grunts, glares and hammer fist hits (by Bud), goofy acrobats (by Hill) - and no sex or bad language. Great for kids,fun for adults.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but very 70's May 10, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Bud Spencer/Terrence Hill movie is another classic spaghetti movie. The quality could be better but it is entertaining in that slapstick kind of way. It actually has a story and plot which makes it easier to follow than some of their other movies. Bottom line - you will like it if you like these two humorous cowboys in action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gut Busters February 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
- Police Captain, gazing at Hill's messed-up police car: "Isn't there, ah, supposed to be a door on both sides?"
- Terence Hill: "You don't miss a trick, eh, Chief?"

Before MIAMI VICE came along, Terence Hill and Bud Spencer patrolled the streets of Miami, which probably sucked for the good citizens of Miami. CRIME BUSTERS, a.k.a. I DUE SUPERPIEDI QUASI PIATTI (its Italian title), is the first Terence Hill/Bud Spencer movie for me, and from what I hear, this is one of their very best pairings. It's certainly good enough that I now plan to check out other pictures teaming up these two.

CRIME BUSTERS came out in 1977, so there's a dated look and feel to it, as well as a whole bunch of dubbing going on. Doesn't stop it, though, from being dang entertaining and a very funny odd couple film. Two strangers, Matt Kirby (Terence Hill) and Wilbur Walsh (bearish Bud Spencer), cross paths and, both fed up with not getting work, plot to rob a supermarket. Deciding to break in thru the supermarket's service door, they instead land in a police recruiting office - and end up signing on reluctantly. Unwilling recruits that they are, they don't go out of their way to conform, hoping to get bounced off the force. Except that every bumble seems to result in a crook being nabbed and the police captain heaping praises on Kirby (as for Walsh, the captain just keeps ordering dude to shave).

I got a good vibe from the very start. The opening sequence features thugs in suits at the dock getting beat down silly and their auto demolished by Bud Spencer. A bit later, Terence Hill comes around and administers the same treatment. Having seen Terence Hill before in the classic western

4.0 out of 5 stars Police spoof with a great Italian comedy duo August 20, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this around 1981 on The Movie Channel, then gradually sought out the rest of their movies over the next 20+ years. I'm not sure how well this holds up for those who didn't first discover this Italian comedy duo during childhood, but...

Highlights include:
Addictive musical themes! (0:00)
New cars smashed to bits with sledgehammers! (5:00)
How (not) to attempt a hold-up using only pointed fingers! (27:45)
Zany police training sequences! (34:35)
Formaldehyde-flavored chewing gum! (40:00)
Sign language not learned anywhere else! (45:45)
A step by step demonstration of how to treat V.I.P.s! (1:06:40)
A full football team versus two men (or is it just one?)!! (1:13:37)
"High class" dinner with a Russian countess and her friend (and a "penguin")! (1:25:15)
Multiple fight scenes with inimitable hand-to-hand combat techniques! (1:39:00)

Check it out! :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Low-Budget Hilarity June 7, 2010
By tesg
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
From the moment you realize the flickering during the opening sequence is actually the shadow of the helicopter blades they filmed the shot the end when you realize the soundtrack contains exactly ONE SONG played over and over again, you know very little money went into this. Doesn't's a hysterical cult classic made known to most by extensive runs on HBO in their early days.

I kind of worried when ordering the DVD that watching the movie today wouldn't be as positive an experience as it was back then, having not seen it in about 20 years. But it is. You'll laugh so hard, you'll get kicked out of Canada.
