Watch Out, We’re Mad 1974 ***

watch-out-were-mad

The many films partnering Terrence Hill and Bad Spencer are something of an acquired taste; ironic given that the Italian actors working under pseudonyms clearly have no intent other than to entertain. Watch Out, We’re Mad seen the due as two garage workers who win a dune buggy, only to see it smashed to bits by local gangsters. The two men take their revenge, smashing up cars, motorbikes and property with gleeful abandon. Director Marcello Fondato does a good job with the messy action, interspersing impressive stunt work with the knockabout comedy that was an Italian staple. If the heroes are mad, Donald Pleasance goes completely insane as a Freud-influenced doctor who cheer-leads from the sidelines in this enjoyable slice of hokum.
