"First viewing I originally added this to the IQ after my parents recommended I check it out, and overall I enjoyed it. The filmmakers clearly had big balls to put out this kind of a movie at the height of the Cold War, and I admire that. The performances are solid & there's some really hilarious moments to be enjoyed.
