  1. Wow, she’s really a terrible singer. I thought only autotune brought us such off key caterwauling.

    Also now I see where they got the “Indian” for the Keep America Beautiful crying Indian commercial.

    (For those that don’t know, the dude in that PSA is actually Italian.)

      AW! You didn’t even like the main song cause that’s the catchiest one in here!!!!

    • Though in all fairness, the “Indian” actually did really identify with Amerindian culture, married an Amerindian woman, “appeared to live as if he were of indigenous Native American descent”, and was a major spokesperson for tribal rights. According to Wikipedia, “In 1995, the Hollywood Native community honored Cody for his contributions to the representation of Native American life, yet they tactfully pointed out his non-Native heritage.”

      Maybe by today’s standards he was still a bit of a douche, but he wasn’t exactly the classic example of…what’s it called? Redface? I think even the term itself is kind of offensive, but I wouldn’t know.

    • The ‘Lucio from Bologna’ guy is also a singer, and a much better one. His name is Lucio Dalla.

    Good thing you didn’t make a lone ranger reference cause sillypol in the shadows and him getting shaded from the sunlight kinda looks like tonto(you know without all the heavy makeup and such).

    Also I don’t think little Rita’s sexy just as cute as a button. Now I’ve got the min song from the movie stuck in my head it’s so catchy it hurts to think about so now time to go find a new song to obsess over and try to get this one out of my head.

    Also love the subway spokesperson getting fired joke seeing as it totally reminded me of recent events and Jared fogle getting fired from that job so now time to go like the video on YouTube and I appreciate that joke but time to go like it(if I already haven’t).;)

  4. I’ve heard of the western musical Paint Your Wagon, but I never heard of an Italian western musical.

    2:12- Ha. I’d love to see you review that Nazi musical. Also, I hope to God that it’s a comedy.

    Is it just me, or does Rita kinda look like a young Alyson Hannigan?

    9:18- If this is a gay western, we would see these guys get Fisted Full of Dollars.

    18:24- So THIS is what happened to the town drunk from Blazing Saddles. =P

    I’ve obviously heard of Custer’s Revenge thanks to AVGN and Game Boys, …but I have never before heard of General Retreat (AKA Custer’s Revenge: The Opposite Edition).

    21:22- I’ve seen Rita’s Wikipedia page, and she was 22 when this movie was released. So, I guess what I’ve trying to say here is …JERK AWAY, SNOB! …Excuse me while I take a long shower just for saying that.

  5. I fell in love with Rita Pavone when I was 8. She wasn’t much bigger than me even then. She had a hit record and was on Ed Sullivan. I still have the LP.

  6. 03:19 Hey, a familiar name 😀 Then again, him being in an Italtian western from the 60s is not very surprising.

    04:15 Yep, that’s definitly a spagetthi western.

    04:48 That’s racist!

  7. She reminds me of Arya Stark

  8. Snob is shorter than Little Rita?? :p

  9. 3:23 ==> “nel ruolo di Ringo” simply means “in the role of Ringo”.

  10. Yep, Terence Hill was big in Italy. Or Hungary! Him and Bud Spencer were in basically all the cop and western movies of my youth. 🙂

  11. I very much enjoy the video static artwork of the Cinema Snob videos, kudos! This review was hilarious. Thank you.
