Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia are photo reporters in Rome - who rather accidently land a scoop photographing a murder. So they are sent to Rome to pick up the trail of a certain "David" who has fallen in with some hippies and is supposed to be in league with a certain well-guarded and mysterious guru. Again rather by accident, our two heroes gain access to the guru's quarters and see (and photograph) him being murdered by the same guy who has committed above-mentioned murder. From now on our heroes are on the run, because the killer and his cronies want to get their hands on the roll of film that depicts the murder - and clumsy as they are, they pretty much step into every trap along the way and then some - but come out of everything unscathed because they have a guardian angel - an undercover cop, actually, because it seems the baddies were all members of a diamond smuggling ring the police was after for quite some time, and Franchi and Ingrassia were just the right kind of bait ...


Often referred to as a giallo spoof because the title sounds just like Dario Argento's Il Gatto a Nove Code from the year before, this film is actually nothing of the sort, rather a very broad crime comedy with plenty of lazily executed slapstick starring a comedy duo that has definitely seen better times and fails to bring any depth to their characters. Plus, the film is in serious need of a proper narrative structure, as it is it seems to just heap one chase scene onto the next with little to move the plot alone, which is subsequently explained away in the last very few minutes (with little having happened prior to this to base the explanation on).

To put it simply, rather a waste of time.
