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 surfing sequences were filmed at Holywell Bay, Cornwall, UK (a few miles down the coast from Newquay, a popular surfing town). The palm trees were fake, and the surf shack was in fact the actual lifeguard's hut (which is still there). The beach is recognizable by the two large rock formations located at the left of the beach, approx 100 meters out to sea. See more »
When Hillary is riding the motorcycle to get Nick at the lake(long shot as she is driving down the road), you can see the helmet strap going down the side of her chin to hold on the messed up "hair". See more »
Go with Nick. Don't worry about us. We will hear his music on the Voice of America. We will hear it in the hearts of the people, and in elevators everywhere.

Comparable to great comedies like Airplane! and The Naked Gun.
This movie truly is another great work from David Zucker and Jim Abrahams team. In some scenes you will laugh so hard that you have to pause the movie, laugh for five minutes then play it again. Also, Val Kilmer does a great acting for his first movie!
This movie may not be the best comedy ever made but it still is among the top of its genre and a great movie to watch even and specially if you're not in a good mood.
If you found "Airplane!" funny then watching this one is highly recommended. It has the same stupid and totally funny jokes and same sense of humor. It also is the best parody of WW2 spy movies. Rent or buy the DVD and enjoy it!
