Alberto de Mendoza,
At the end of the movie, several titles for fake upcoming sequels pop up. One of them is "Espía como puedas" ("Spy as you can"), a play on the Spanish title of Airplane! (1980), which was "Aterriza como puedas" ("Land as you can"). Years later, when Spy Hard (1996) was released in Spain, it was given the title "Espía como puedas". See more »
I found this movie to be an all around fun time. I was previously on familiar with Paul Naschy's werewolf films which all seem to have a somber and bleak tone to me, but you won't find any of that here. This movie is pure madcap fun in the tradition of 'Airplane!', 'Cannonball Run', 'Austin Powers', and the 'Flint' films. Basically a rather simple eurospy storyline told through a series of mini sketches and sight gags, and in my opinion in pays off very well.
If you can find it, give it a shot, it's in Spanish, and not available in an English dub to my knowledge, however the humor comes of as very American and doesn't seem dated at all.
Operation Mantis: 8/10. Check it out.
