| Fantastic movie with Bud Spencer at his peak acting performance
I think this movie is Bud Spencer's best. I've seen almost all he's been in. The fighting scene in the bar with the sugar on the omelette is probably his most iconic and best fighting acting ever.

It has that old-time feel. It may come of as a bit cheesy and strange for some people. But to me, the genuinity, humor, stereotyping, the natural environments, the use of music .. everything is great in this one!

As a humorous and sometime serious movie, it is highly recommended.
