Italian neo-realism meets the Three Stooges. And that's a good thing. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen. It approaches pure slapstick but always in the gritty realistic style that the Italians created. Great actors and a terrific plot. This movie contains one of the funnies and most unique car chases in the history of movie making. There is no reason for you not to watch this movie.

I cannot begin to do justice to the cinematic artistry involved in this film, so I will just talk about the music. I don't know who the genius is who wrote this score. Wish I did. It is not a "mash-up" but a loving blend of a mad variety of styles: American folk music, Hawaiian slack string, spaghetti western, stock Hollywood schmaltz, Thai folk and popular music, European classical blended seamlessly. Brilliant.
