Get in trouble with the Fat and the Thin !!!
16 June 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

One's the first picture that I'd ever seen at theatre was from this outstanding couple, which I didn't remember the name, well-known here in Brazil fondly as "the Fat and the Thin" in this picture our friends are hired to takes a coffin to another city by train, the coffin was swapped on railway station, actually inside has a living crook who is at large from the police, forgetting a bit the plot, there are some many gags around, they were misled by a couple of crooks who sold to them a machine that make oversized money, so they made a spensive dinner, but the machine didn't work out, more trouble ahead, arriving in the town they got a job with a great magician, but they are pursued by the coffin's gang, this remarkable duo comics had a successful box-office here and TV as well, their DVD are available with an original dubbed version, all in my collection !!!

Resume:

First watch: 1991 / How many: 4 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 7
