"HE'S A SUPER-SNOOPER, HE'S A SUPER-TROOPER, A WONDER COP ONE LIKE YOU NEVER SAAAAAWWW"
Are you prepared to hear those lyrics in an upbeat disco tempo roughly seven thousand times? Well do I have the movie for you!
Super Fuzz is an odd duck. Newbie cop Dave Speed is nuked in the course of delivering a ticket to an abandoned house (well, abandoned tipi) and develops an absolutely ridiculous array of super powers - during the climax there's literally a scene of him getting directions from a fish - and uses them to solve a bunch of not-even-really-criminal crimes and annoy his partner (Ernest Borgnine).
It's...enjoyable? Like don't get me wrong, it's dumb as absolute hell and Italian as fuck, but there's something kind of amusing in Terrance Hill demanding mobsters slap eachother during a sobriety test or Ernest Borgnine freezing solid in a meat locker.
