Cry, Onion! (1976)
Comedy about an onion breeder (F. Nero) who has to defend his onion fields against a greedy oil company. Not as bad as many say, but despite a few nice slapstick scenes it's often also too silly not to be called awful. More boring than funny. In the end it's a film with a speaking horse, and maybe we won't like to see a curly haired Franco Nero having conversations with his horse. (spaghetti-western.net)
