Who find a friend... finds a punch!!

This is perhaps the Terence Hill/Bud Spencer movie that I´ve enjoyed the most. A solid plot, a superb reggae-style main title track and the two Italian friends in their very best shape ten years after their first world-wide success "My name is Trinity", make this movie most amusing and even unforgettable. Funny dialogues, funny gags, and of course, the essential punches and slaps. A movie to watch and to keep forever.

Who Watches Bud & Terence Finds Loads Of Fun

Man, I just love these Bud Spencer & Terence Hill flicks! I've been an enthusiastic Spencer/Hill fan since my childhood. I've seen every film the two made together multiple times, and their films still seem to get funnier and better with each viewing. Such as this "Chi trova un amico, trova un tresoro" ("Who Finds A Friend Finds A Treasure") of 1981. While this is not one of my favorite Spencer/Hill films, it is yet another hilarious flick with or favorite duo of manner-less proletarian drifters that entertains with a high dose of fistfights and the typical Spencer/Hill humor. Fleeing from his debtees, Alan (Terence Hill) hides in the boat owned by Charlie O'Brien (Bud Spencer), who is to be paid a big amount of money for a promotional cruise. The ruffian Charlie, of course, is furious when he discovers his blind passenger. Alan then manipulates Charlie's compass in order to travel to a remote island on which a treasure is supposed to be hidden... "Who Finds A Friend Finds A Treasure" is arguably one of the sillier films even for Spencer/ Hill standards, and they are not exactly avatars of subtlety. The film's silliness, however, is a delightful one, and for a Spencer/Hill fan, this is one of the funniest films to watch. Bud and Terrence entertain with their usual rowdy behavior, many fistfights and incomparably entertaining humor. As it is the case in most of their films, the clever Terence brings the short-tempered (and not so clever) Bud to outrage multiple times with his puns and tricks. "Who Finds A Friend Finds A Treasure" also introduces a bunch of eccentric and outrageously funny characters, such as the island tribe ruled by a chubby lady named 'Mama' who disciplines her son with heavy slaps on the head, or a Japanese soldier who hides out in a remote fort and doesn't realize that WW2 has been over for decades - a spoof on the real-life case of Hideo Onada, a Japanese soldier who was hiding out heavily armed on an island until 1974. This was directed by the great Sergio Corbucci, the director of Italian Western masterpieces such as "Django" (1966) and "The Great Silence" (1968). This film is not one of his masterpieces, of course, but it is a film that I personally enjoy more with each time I see it (and I've seen it at least 10 times). Overall, "Who Finds A Friend Finds A Treasure" is another highly entertaining and outrageously funny Spencer/Hill flick that no fan of the duo could possibly afford to miss!

WHO FINDS A FRIEND FINDS A TREASURE is an amusing and entertaining Hill and Spencer movie

Alan (Terence Hill ) obtains a map about a Japanese hidden treasure in a far island. Being pursued by some gangsters he aboard on Charlies's (Bud Spencer) boat who justly sails around the world. Later on , they are shipwrecked and find the treasure island. There they discover which it is not as abandoned as they thought. Then they meet one Japanese soldier (John Fujioka) and a tribe with savage natives (the ordinary Italian secondary Salvatore Borghese, among others). After that, the pair become involved in several adventures, and rare situations full of risks , dangers and fun. The big time duo from Spahetti Western wrapped in humor as ¨They call me Trinity ¨ and its following as ¨Trinity is still my name¨ and ¨Trouble makers¨ were run out and then they turned into the Police, action, and adventure genre . As they played the Miami series which are set in Florida, such as ¨Miami Supercops¨, ¨Crime Busters¨, and ¨Superfuzz¨ . At Europe these movies are shown on TV very frequently and are part of growing up on kids and teenagers. The stories are plenty of humor and based on diverse personality and physical differences among them . This one deals with the adventure genre and set on a small Pacific island where is stashed a treasure since the end of WWII. It packs silly comedy, tongue in cheek, slapdash, slapstick and the habitual struggles without blood , nor violence, full of abundant kicks, punches, leaps and bounds. Lousy and jolly musical score composed by means of synthesizer by the usual La Bionda. Furthermore it contains average and quite poor cinematography. The motion picture is professionally directed by Sergio Corbucci, an expert on Spaghetti Western, such as he proved in ¨Django¨,¨The Mercenarios¨,¨Compañeros¨,¨Minessota Clay¨,¨Ringo and the golden gun¨,¨Hellbenders¨, among others. The film is absolutely hilarious for Hill and Spencer enthusiasts and ranks among their most famous and most representative ones; , a must see for all their fans. Rating : Mediocre but entertaining.
