Trivia

During the scene where Dick Steele rides the horse into an elevator at a hotel, the couple in the elevator with him is played by Stuntman Loren Janes and his real wife, Ginger. Janes and his wife played the same roles in the same scene of True Lies (1994), which is what the scene parodies. Janes also worked on the stunts for this movie as well. See more »

Goofs

General Rancor states that the missile will launch in 36 hours, yet way more time than that has passed before he and Steel meet. See more »

funny but not his best
23 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie is pretty funny, it's not Leslie Nielsen's best though. Some parts of this movie are just plain dumb, but that's the point. It's actually a pretty funny movie that I enjoyed watching and will maybe enjoy again.

Charles Durning and Barry Bostwick are funny together. Marcia Gay Harden is funny too. And of course, Leslie Nielsen, he's funny in this film but not funnier than some of his other films.

If you like this kind of comedy, and Leslie Nielsen then you'd like this. But if you're looking for a funnier film with Nielsen, than rent another one like dracula or any of the naked gun movies, airplane is always good too.
