Trivia

Relaxing one night after a long day of filming, Oliver Reed was relaxing when Michael Crawford was walking by. Oliver, in his character's Russian accent, invited Michael to sit and have a drink. When Michael declined, Oliver demanded saying, "Come here into Russian Embassy and have drink, you little feathered fart!". Needless to say, from that moment on Michael was referred to as "Condorman the Feather Fart." See more »

Goofs

After the scene where Woody and Natalia escape from Morovich by turning the Condormobile into a hovercraft, Morovich reports to Krokov that the Condormobile turned into a hydrofoil. See more »

Quotes

Woody Wilkins: Well?
Harry Oslo: I got some information on Natalia.
Woody Wilkins: Tell me!
Harry Oslo: Krokovk's got her. He's holding her at the embassy on the border of Monte Carlo.
Woody Wilkins: We've gotta get to her, Harry!
Harry Oslo: Woody, wait. We also got new orders. We've been ordered back to the U.S. The mission's considered a bust.
Woody Wilkins: I can't go back. Not without Natalia. I love her, Harry.
Harry Oslo: I know.
Woody Wilkins: Look, I've still got top rated clearance. That gives me access to anything I need, right?
Harry Oslo: Woody, that was before we were ordered back to the states!

Unlikely hero in comical family film
25 January 2005 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. I grew up watching Condorman and I always think of it with fond memories. The special effects may not be the best; however, the movie is over two decades old, and I think the effects are quite adequate. Besides, the movie is not supposed to be realistic, but rather it is a comedy with action elements. It provides a window into what people worried about in the early eighties; Cold War espionage is a major part of the story. Overall, it is charming and is a feel-good movie. It has all the classic elements: good verses evil and boy meets girl. It is a quality family movie and I would recommend this film to all who are young at heart.
