This time Zucker and Abrams are spoofing, most notably, Elvis films and WWII spy movies. Val Kilmer stars as Nick Rivers, a handsome American 50s-style rock and roll singer. While performing in East Germany, he falls in love with a beautiful heroine and becomes involved with the French Resistance. Written by
The idea of skeet surfing came out of the Zucker brothers trying to outdo each other at press junkets. They would specifically concoct outlandish stories to amuse themselves and bewilder journalists. See more »
When Nick enters Dr. Flammond's cell and Dr. Flammond is seen emptying spoonfuls of dirt from under his cot, you can clearly see him scoop dirt from a different pile underneath the cot rather than the tunnel he was nearly completing. See more »

This movie is unbelievable funny and makes no sense.
Why are there Nazis in East-Germany capturing Scientists and why do they want to let a Rock'n'Roll singer play his music!? For me one of the funniest part is the "german language cassette" Rivers' is listening to in the train (!) to Germany. This words make absolutely no sense! :) The whole train sequence is funny. The train station and the guy with the tree also rock!
Val Kilmer did a great performance, acting, dancing and singing!
The title sequence "skeet surfing" is also a great parody for the American way of life!
