This is an over-the-top Italian action-comedy that doesn't take itself the least bit seriously. Watch Out, We're Mad is a remake of a 1974 comedy of the same name, and it really does hearken back to the days of cartoonish buddy movies that are more concerned with physical humor and gags than an overly coherent story. It doesn't try to be anything that it isn't, and that's where it works best.

The chemistry between the actors makes and defines the movie, another aspect of older movies that tends to get lost in today's CGI-infused bombast. It's not for everyone, and folks can't be blamed for wondering why this particular ‘70s movie was chosen to be remade for today's audiences. It doesn't offer anything new or groundbreaking, but really, it's one of those comedies best for watching after a long week when you want to turn the brain off for 90 minutes or so.
