Odds and Evens is a 1978 Italian action-comedy film directed by Sergio Corbucci, and starring Terence Hill and Bud Spencer, two of the most famous actors of the genre. The movie is set in Miami, where two brothers, one a cop and the other a gambler, team up to bring down a criminal organization involved in the illegal trade of weapons.

Terence Hill plays Johnny, a smart and charismatic cop who never plays by the book. He is known for his unorthodox methods and his ability to think outside the box. Bud Spencer, on the other hand, plays Charlie, Johnny's brother, a gambling addict who is always in debt and constantly in trouble with the law. Despite their different personalities, Johnny and Charlie are very close, and when Charlie witnesses a murder committed by a member of the local Mafia, they decide to team up and bring down the entire organization.

Together, they embark on a series of funny and action-packed adventures, confronting gangsters, corrupt cops, and local politicians who are all involved in the dirty business. Their journey takes them from the luxurious casinos of Miami to the seedy streets of Little Havana, where they meet Lorenzo (Luciano Catenacci), a flamboyant Cuban arms dealer who supplies weapons to the Mafia.

The action in Odds and Evens is fast-paced and exciting, with plenty of explosions, car chases, and fistfights. However, what makes the movie stand out from other action-comedies of the era is the chemistry between Hill and Spencer, who make a perfect duo. Their banter and physical comedy are hilarious, and their fighting styles complement each other perfectly. Hill is fast, agile, and resourceful, while Spencer is strong, durable, and very good with his fists.

The supporting cast is also great, with Luciano Catenacci stealing the show as the eccentric and flamboyant Lorenzo. He is a memorable character, with his colorful outfits, outrageous accent, and his habit of interrupting conversations with a loud "Hasta la vista!" He provides a lot of comic relief, and the scenes he shares with Hill and Spencer are some of the funniest in the movie.

Overall, Odds and Evens is a great example of the action-comedy genre, and one of the best movies starring Terence Hill and Bud Spencer. It has all the elements that make these movies so popular - great action, humor, and a charismatic leading duo - but it also has heart and a well-crafted story. It's a feel-good movie that will leave you entertained and satisfied.
