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!
