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.

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 ...Read more ›
