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 »

Funny spy-themed spoof with Weird Al in opening theme
1 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I caught 'Spy Hard' on television the other night, and the film really took me back to the early 1990s. I noticed Weird Al right away from his part singing the theme song. 'Spy Hard's' purpose is to create a comical version of James Bond and similar spy-themed films. Some of the comedy is very funny, but some of it wears thin throughout the film. (You'll either enjoy the sense of humour, or you will hate it.) WD40 is a great name for the secret agent, and Mr. T even makes an appearance. There is also a lot of adult-themed humour. By the end of the film, I was ready for it to be finished. It's funny, but it's not brilliant, but I cannot complain because it did let me laugh. If you like Austin Powers, you will probably like this, even though it is not as popular. It will also take you right back to the early 1990s. Not a perfect film, it does have some good humour.
