I happened to catch this film on late night TV, and I thought it worth mentioning that the "universal gesture of love" is changed from crotch-grabbing to making kissy lip motions.  It's remarkably silly, and I now have to wonder if any other scenes are completely different in the television edit...

The main lesson of this movie:  There are still ethnic minorities you can make fun of and not get into lots of trouble.

I remember seeing this film in a theater with my father.  Ten years later, my father died of cancer.

I think there's a connection.

I want my 2.99 back that I paid for this movie at a flea market.  I mean it was kinda funny, but not 2.99 funny.

I saw this movie once randomly on late night TV.  I happened to be on LSD at the time.  It scarred me for life.

This is one of my all time favorite flicks.  I haven't seen it in an awful long time, but the memory of the scene where the police chief reads off a list of homicide victims (all Italians) and both him and the detective don't find any connection, or the scene where the judge after sex goes off to the bathroom to masturbate while the detective says to her that that was great and how did she like it and she says she loved it (with the machine sounding off in the background) or the scene with the mime calling him up, or the pusher from Persia or the whole Italian food premise or the constant talking to oneself, I mean, the movie was freakin' brilliant and jam packed with fun scenes.  I give it two thumbs up and two Italian ices.

Very funny movie...great review. I have since used McSORLEY's 'international sign of love' gesture on all women.

Oh, so *that's* what it was called!!  I have a fragment of a memory of seeing an ad for this-- that's right, there was an ad campaign-- wayyyy back when I was a baby.  In just those thirty seconds, that fat guy scarred my psyche for life.  I've always wondered if I imagined it.

I'm half italian and live in Italy and I thought this film was great fun in an obviously cheesy way. I found the "narrator" joke a bit tired after a while and just didn't get the bit where Murray dances Question...but that said a movie I would reccommend to every b-movie lover over out there!
