Slapdash comedy
12 April 2005 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Bud Spencer plays a cop (named, in an obvious attempt to pass him off as an American, Alan Parker (!)) who has to temporarily cancel his family vacation to re-capture a gigolo (named Tony Roma (!)) who seduces older women and then steals their jewelry. But when that man becomes a witness to a Mafia killing, he and Bud team up to put the REAL bad guys behind bars.

After seeing him in about 8-10 films, I've come to the conclusion that Bud Spencer has an undeniable comic talent. Unfortunately, in "Cane e Gatto" there is no one else to support him or play off against him: Tomas Milian is an unfunny caricature of a self-assured gigolo who wears kitschy suits, drives a pink car and is dubbed with an overdone Italian accent, and Marc Lawrence is a less unfunny, but still unfunny, caricature of a Mafia don. This is slapdash (notice the rapid night-to-day change between the hotel scene and the chase that follows immediately afterwards), simple-minded film-making. ** out of 4, and that's very generous.
