"Those Two" are the popular and amazingly prolific Italian comedy duo Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia, here starring in their third Franco and Ciccio comedy in five months for cult filmmaker Lucio Fulci (L'Aldila; Zombi 2). Coming just a month after the enjoyably loopy 002 Operazione Luna, this is a rather slapdash entry in the long-running series, a Spanish-Italian co-production casting the boys as a pair of bungling Sicilian parachutists who get involved in a coup d'etat in an unnamed banana republic. The usual slapstick and farcical situations ensue, all played out with the frantic signature hysteria which has marked most Franco and Ciccio films. Most of the series regulars (Linda Sini, Maria Silva, Umberto D'Orsi, Monica Randall, Enzo Andronico, Lino Banfi) are on hand for the rather desperate hijinks, along with spaghetti Western veterans Roberto Camardiel and Ignazio Leone.
