Crime Busters (Italian: I due superpiedi quasi piatti) is a 1977 Italian action crime comedy film directed by Enzo Barboni. It was one of the three movies awarded with the Golden Screen Award in 1977 along with The Exorcist and The Towering Inferno.
In a contemporary review, Monthly Film Bulletin called Crime Busters “a singularly dull variation on the sprightly, sparring Newman/Redford comedy formula” and that there are a few original ideas in the script, but they were “largely wasted by the lackluster direction and the film’s inevitable drift into an endless series of unimaginatively choreographed punch-ups.”
From retrospective reviews, AllMovie called the film “light but likeable stuff” and that the appeal of the film depends “solely on one’s opinion of Hill and Spencer’s antics.” The review also noted supporting roles, noting David Huddleston and Laura Gemser. The review concluded that the film was “shaggy around the edges but fans of slapstick humor will find it endearing enough to pull them through.”
