I have seen this film twice and going I'm to watch it again tomorrow. Known as 'Down By Law' in the states where I first saw it in the early 80's , all I can think to say is I've never seen a funnier movie in my life. If you get the chance to see this one do it! It will have you rolling and give you a bellyache... no I'm not giving away the plot line just a teaser. The family in this film are fantastically portrayed and the setting is hilarious to say the least. From their heads to their footwear the casting was perfect. Don't let subtitles put you off it really is worth watching you wont regret it and I think you will want to watch it over and over whenever you need a good laugh play this film!
