The English dub is pretty cringe-worthy, but the print looks stellar by Mya's standards!

I should imagine they probably took it from the Italian DVD.

I'm inclined to agree with you, Ispettore!

I saw 'La poliziotta fa carriera' (the first in the series) a few hours ago. This is the kind of movie that makes me happy to know there are still some gems out there that I haven't seen already. For me, I think this is probably Edwige's best role. She's charming, cute, funny, and kicks butt all in the same film. Oh and I should say SPOILERS, just in case before I go on.

The Kung Fu fight in the cave is awesome, really well done. And when they were having the awards ceremony at the end, the guys were wearing those big exaggerated casts, and then the parrot from earlier flies back in - Brilliant. And I was watching this without any English, but I could still keep up with it. Id put it in my 'Top 10 Best Italian Comedies' list for sure.
