Since its inception in 2009, the Cinema Overdrive series at the Colony Theater in Raleigh has more than lived up to their mission statement to present “the best in cult, exploitation and gonzo action cinema.” Wednesday night, that tradition continues with Enzo Barboni’s 1977 crime comedy “Crime Busters.” Legendary Italian comic duo Terence Hill and Bud Spencer, in their 10th film together, star as con men turned cops who take on a gang of drug traffickers in Miami. Expect a lot of slapstick fights, crazy chases and property damage, because as the film’s tagline puts it: “They’re a pair of car-crashing, womanizing, rough-housing loudmouths... and they’re the good guys!” Augmented by vintage trailers, it starts at 8 pm. $5.
