Cyberflic is terrible. There is no 2 ways about it. As much as we love seeing Terence Hill in just about anything. This one was majorly stinky. I'm not sure who the ghost theme was supposed to appeal to. It just doesn't work. Who wants to see Terence as a ghost?? All of the sappy family stuff does not a good movie make. A little bit goes a long way in the sappy family department. And finding him still alive after being a ghost during the whole movie was beyond bad. I think someone has already mentioned how much better the music in these movies was in the 70's. As a huge fan and collector of everything Terence Hill and Bud Spencer, I will follow them anywhere. But I blame their worst efforts on filming in Florida (comfortible surroundings) and Bruno Corbucci. Don't get me wrong, Bruno did write a couple of classic movies early on. But he was also responsible for most of their most terrible efforts on screen. If one looks through the history of Terence Hill and/or Bud Spencer, again and again, you will find Bruno Corbucci behind the terrible movies. And as for Florida, the whole Miami Vice thing must have influenced foreign filmmakers much more than in the states. Because they kept copying that style over and over. And it was almost never a good idea. Even when they had Philip Michael Thomas, still bad, bad, bad. It seems like their films were much more fun in uncomfortable surroundings. Filming in modern day America was not good to our boys. USA must have seemed exotic to Europeans,.. or just more "Hollywood". Afterall, they are competing with Hollywood product worldwide. As for Terence and Bud, there was a tendency to be for them to want to play good guys/upstanding do-gooders. This made their characters and their movies more uninteresting. Their best characters, Trinity, Bambino, Nobody,...were not really good guys. They were basically self-interested bad guys. The creeping "nice-ness" in their movies was the death of fun. I appreciate that Terence wants to make family oriented fare. But no sex, no violence, nothing frightening for children equals nothing interesting. Who wants to see a nice guy doing nothing very interesting? It doesn't work.
