Chevy and Aykroyd..can't go wrong.

5 years, 3 months ago at Nov 4 18:28
I was in the mood for an older comedy and I haven't seen this film before. With a cast of Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd..what could go wrong? The plot is decent and kind of predictable, but it's a fun movie with some great laughs and funny situations. There's even a "special" cameo by someone who's quite the man!

Dislikes: Little bit longer than it needed to be, for the type of film..... read more

Nameless' Movie Diary 2015 (329 movies items)

"8.11. Netflix Spies Like Us has a few funny jokes, but most of the jokes are either cheap jokes that go on for too long or jokes that stop abruptly, just when they're getting good. They are also too infrequent and the way the film is shot and edited is very mundane and serious; not suiting the movie at all and thus making the whole thing sort of oddly lifeless. Also, Chevy Chase is just unbearably annoying."

" Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd go undercover to hijack a Soviet missile launcher in this wacky screwball comedy. "

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"The Russian phrase spoken by Dan Aykroyd to the Russian agents is: "Chem men'she znaesh', tem lushche." This translates as: "The less you know, the better." Chevy Chase took the role originally intended for Joe Piscopo. The movie was inspired by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby's "Road" movies, thus explaining Bob Hope's cameo appearance. Hope's cameo of less than 30 seconds playing a round of golf through a tent was his final appearance in a film. The movie that Emmett Fitz-Hume (Chevy Chase) wat"

"June 23 This was another one I wasn't expecting too much from because I thought this was going to be another Brewster's Millions by judging the rating. I liked it more than I expected it to. I wouldn't call this movie hilarious, but it did have some funny moments. This movie also makes me wish that Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd were in more movies together."
