This time Zucker and Abrahams 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
One of the sight gags during Peter Cushing's scene involves him having a ridiculously over sized eye. Ironically two years earlier he had to go to the hospital when his left eye had swollen to 3 times its size due to his until then undiagnosed cancer, so perhaps having this gag as part of the scene was an in-joke between him, his friends, and the filmmakers.

When they are breaking into the generator room at the castle the stethoscope varies position in the different shots. See more »
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!
