he first time I saw this movie I watched it on Beta; someone had seen it before me and said it was GOOD so they rented it for a bunch of kids. I didn't like it then and I am still not a fan of it now. True, I bought it from one of the video stores here in town that was closing out. $2.00 or so: CHEAP.
It is the story of a police officer (Terence Hill- most notably found in the TRINITY movies) who is sent to an Indian Reservation, to deliver a parking ticket notice, by his, always yelling superior officer, Srgt. Dunlop (Ernest Borgnine) on the exact day NASA is performing SECRET tests. Officer ----- gets caught in the explosion and, as a result, receives super powers. The catch: he loses them whenever he sees the colour RED. This all makes for zany results (For those of you who can't hear me saying this outloud as I write I am being facetious. With the help of his Super powers, ---------- is able to fly, wish thousands of people out of stadiums, move objects by thought, and the topper, he can blow enormous bubblegum bubbles (Amazing- I mean it).
I admit I laughed in here at several occasions, okay maybe it was more of a snort, but the humour was there, I caught the bug a smidge. How's this for a brilliant scene (again, facetiousness rears it's ugly head): After ------- believes he sees counterfeit bills in the box of a Fish company truck- he and Dunlop open it up, with the inside of the truck being covered in red ----- he can't see the bills anymore. ------ is confused;
Dunlop: 'Counterfeit bills. All I saw in there were fish. Now, I'm not saying they're not counterfeit fish but even if they were there's no law against it... or is there?
I swear I rolled all over the floor (in pain.)
I've always felt sorry for Ernest Borgnine; he's got one of the greatest names in Hollywood, right up there with Englebert Humperdink, Egon Spangler and Caizer Souzy, yet he hasn't, in my opinion, amounted to Bupkiss. Bupkiss I tells ya. And this Terence Hill guy his movie career has spanned a great many years and he has been in a great many movies yet they all are as double-plus-ungood as his comedy routines.
And, you know what, I will watch this movie again in a year or so; about the time I forget the icky yuckiness I feel when I watch it. It is fun for young children cuz the use of site gags are a-plenty and the Cheesy jokes and acting are completely over the top. You won't be bored but you wish you were so you could get the urge to turn it off... but I can't. I own it and I recommend it as a Bad Movie Night Flick.
