Summary

Johnny Firpo (Terence Hill) is an officer in the Navy. He gets the order to stop the illegal gambling in Miami, which has already driven so many soldiers to ruin. His brother Charlie (Bud Spencer), an expert in the gambling milieu, is supposed to support him. Bad luck that Charlie has turned his back on the milieu and is now earning his money honestly as a trucker. Only with a trick Johnny finally manages to pull Charlie to his side. Together they make life difficult for the gang of the gambling godfather Karaboulis until it finally comes to the showdown on the yacht of "The Greek".

Odds and evens is the eleventh joint film of the duo Spencer/Hill (not including Hannibal). Like its predecessor Crime Busters it was shot in Miami.

In Germany, 5.24 million viewers saw the film in cinemas. The film was the most successful film of 1978 behind Star Wars. Star Wars, however, was only able to beat this result thanks to two re-releases. In the premiere year the duo Skywalker/Solo also lost against Spencer/Hill.

The great success of the film prompted the German youth magazine "Bravo" to publish the film as a film photo novel in four consecutive issues. These were the issues 4 to 7 of 1979.

The original title of the film is "Pari e dispari", which translates as "Odds end evens". This is, of course, an allusion to the topic of gambling in the movie, but on the other hand the title also describes the dichotomy of the duo Spencer/Hill very well.

As a director, italo-western veteran Sergio Corbucci (among others known for Django, The great Silence, The White, the Yellow, and the Black) was behind the camera for the first time in a Spencer/Hill film. He has a cameo appearance in the film as guest commentator at the car race. A little later he shot Super Snopper and Who finds a Friend finds a Treasure with Spencer/Hill.

Bud Spencer is seen in a scene on a large photo without a beard. This picture is from 1967 and shows him as mine owner Cooper, his role in the western "Beyond the Law".

Luciano Catenacci can once again be seen in the role of the superior villain, here he is "The Greek". In Crime Busters he already played the head gangster Fred.

Ninfus, the Greek's right hand, is played by Salvatore Borgese, who was seen eight times alongside Bud Spencer and Terence Hill. However, Borgese has special memories of Odds and evens, because it was here that he met his acting colleague Kim McKay. The actress and Borgese were then a couple for 12 years.

Bud Spencer's son Giuseppe Pedersoli has a small role as a naval officer in the film.

The squash-like ball game in the film is the sport Jai Alai, which was very popular in Florida at that time. Charlie Firpo, played by Bud Spencer, takes the place of the aging star Jamn Serrano, whose name is of course an allusion to the Spanish ham of the same name. Bud Spencer's opponents are all active Jai Alai players.

The soundtrack of the film was written by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis. It's their sixth soundtrack for a Spencer/Hill film in a row, at the same time it's their last work for a common film. From now on they only wrote for Bud Spencer's solo films before composing the music for Terence Hill's Doc West in 2008.

The soundtrack of the film has not yet been released in its entirety. With the release of the film a single with the title song Brotherly Love was released. The song Switch from the B-side of the single can also be heard in the film. It can be heard in the bar when Hill meets Kim McKay for the first time, who then introduces him to the poker game. During the poker round runs the song The Man on the Boat, which was released together with Miss Robot also on a single. Miss Robot can be heard in the movie in the scene where Bud feeds his dolphins in the truck. Furthermore, in the pistachio ice cream scene the title song White Yellow and Black from the movie The White, the Yellow, and the Black can be heard in the background and also Angels and Beans from Even Angels eat Beans runs again when Bud destroys the restaurant during his rage. So at least six songs from the film were released in the end, sadly not together on one album.
