When I was a kid I always assumed that this movie is part of the "Naked Gun" films because it's called "The Roman Gun" in Germany. And as a kid it seemed quite funny to me but when I watched it today I realized how bad it actually is! The jokes are few and childish making "S.P.Q.R. 2000 e 1/2 anni fa" totally boring. The only funny things about it are Leslie Nielsen's (who has very little screen time) usual look on his face and the last 5 minutes. The rest is just wasted time. I saw the German 95 min. long version. I can't believe how somebody would be able to sit through the Italian 193 min. version.
