You'd be crazy to miss it.

On his deathbed, business tycoon Guido Puccini implores his son to travel to America and find the soldier who saved his life during World War II. So Bernardo (Ezio Greggio), Guido's incompetent son, embarks on a journey to find Jake Gordon (Mel Brooks), so that his father can thank Jake by giving him half the company.

Instead of an heroic war veteran, Bernardo actually finds that Gordon is a nut-case who has spent many years as the "guest" of a mental institution. And when he's refused permission to take Jake out of the hospital, the determined Bernardo decides that kidnapping is the only way to fulfil his father's wishes. So with the psychotic Jake as a travelling companion and with his doctor in hot pursuit, Bernardo heads back to Italy on an unpredictable and misadventure-filled journey that may just drive him crazy.
