About the Movie

Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd star in this Cold War farce as two complete misfits who aspire to spy for the CIA. Much to their surprise, they are trained as operatives and sent to Central Asia. But the biggest secret of their covert operation is that they are expendable decoys--for another team of agents sent on the real mission--and no one expects them to survive.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: There are seeds of something funny in the film's beginning and in its premise, but they are soon dissipated by so little sustained wit, and so much scenery. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jan 14, 2011

Rotten: Landis never bothers to account for the friendship that springs up spontaneously between these two antipathetic types, but then he never bothers to account for anything in this loose progression of recycled Abbott and Costello riffs. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jan 14, 2011

Rotten: The script is so patchy that most of the genuine laughs are squeezed into the first half; the rest is a rather tacky and confused extended joke about the nuclear arms race. – Stephen Garrett, Time Out, Jan 14, 2011

Rotten: [An] irritating comedy in which Aykroyd and Chase play officials who are sent on a secret mission as decoys whilst the real spies do their work. Their inadequacy is matched by a jokey script of dubious morals and taste. – Film4, Jan 14, 2011

Really fun movie!

This is a great movie! From the introduction of the characters, to their SNL-esque cheating on their spy exams, to their absurd training as spies, and their deployment, this movie hits all the marks of a great one! One of my favorite movies that I love watching several times each year.

Best Idiot Movie of All Time

A couple of idiots embark on a secret mission. What could go wrong? Some of the best played idiot scenes in comedy history. How anyone can rate this below 4 or 5 stars is beyond me!

Funniest movie ever!!

Best move of its time and still today. You will catch yourself quoting lines. Just make sure your friends have seen it first they will be jealous for not telling them about it...
