The Two Parachutists or I due parà is a 1965 Italian war comedy film directed by Lucio Fulci. The film is about two poor Italian buskers who want to go to the USA but get on the wrong ship and end up in South America.


Franco and Ciccio are two street artists of Sicily; after failing in a lot of debt, they are forced to flee to America. There they are immediately enrolled, since the Second World War has just broke out. Becoming experienced skydivers, Franco and Ciccio are sent on a secret mission to Germany to ascertain the situation in Nazi concentration camps. The two bumbling friends are captured, but rescued almost immediately by the Americans who rely on them a new mission. Now the two friends have to go to clumsy parachute in Saudi to discover a terrorist plot, and finally, after combining trouble even in the sultan's palace, Franco and Ciccio definitely will be shipped into the wild Vietnam.
