SUPER FUZZ (1980)
I know Terence Hill mostly for his spaghetti-western roles but he did do a few other things like this Euro/American superhero comedy with Ernest Borgnine as a pair of cops. I also know director Sergio Corbucci mainly for some great euro-westerns including the original DJANGO but he also did dabble in many other genres. This is a movie that played many times on HBO back in the 80s so I feel like it's something I've seen in bits and pieces a bunch. Having seen it all in one sitting now I find it to be an OK dumb comedy along the lines of typical American 80s comedies except there's no boobs in this. There is mostly just a bunch of slapsticky superhero hijinks resulting from Hill getting various super-powers after a getting radiated by a bomb that goes off near him and it's great to see Borgnine freaking out and seemingly having a fun time making this thing. There's also a silly soundtrack where they sing "Super Snooper"(which is the British title of this) over and over again. Check it out to kill time on a hungover Sunday morning.
