Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This Italian-Spanish space-age comedy is a tad less subtle than Jerry Lewis, a soupcon less sophisticated than the Three Stooges. Two Soviet cosmonauts become lost in space, apparently permanently. The rascally Russians try to pass off two other space travellers as the missing cosmonauts so as to avoid worldwide embarrassment. The second pair locates the first pair, and then the fun begins. Dos Cosmonautas was directed by Lucio Fulci, exhibiting a commendable willingness to tackle any sort of movie material--even if he isn't quite up to making the most of that material.
