Synopsis


Spies Like Us
Director John Landis helmed this Cold War farce starring Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase as Austin Millbarge and Emmett Fitz-Hume -- two loser misfits who dwell in the lower ranks of the Central Intelligence Agency. Convinced despite much evidence to the contrary that they're prime secret agent material, both men keep taking service exams in an effort to win promotion. Caught cheating on their latest round of tests, Austin and Emmett expect to be fired but are instead made full field agents and ushered into intense training. Little do they know that it's all a ruse and that they're about to be dumped in Pakistan to throw Russian spies off the scent of two real agents with an important clandestine assignment. A spoof of the "road" pictures popularized by Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, the film features a cameo by the latter as his golf-playing self. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Funny Farm
Chevy Chase stars as Andy Farmer, a sportswriter who moves with his schoolteacher wife Elizabeth (Madolyn Smith) to the country in order to write a novel in relative seclusion. Of course, seclusion is the last thing the Farmers find in the small, eccentric town, where disaster awaits them at every turn. The veteran production staff features the likes of composer Elmer Bernstein, cinematographer Miroslav Ondricek, production designer Henry Bumstead, and director George Roy Hill (The Sting, The World According to Garp). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Widescreen Finally

    Here are 2 somewhat underrated comedies that finally have widescreen releases. Full-screen DVDs are the bane of collector's existence and the previous releases of these movies were just that along with poor quality transfers at that. All is well now with this release and a great/cheap grab for collectors everywhere.

    2 funny movies, but not much to review other than the quality of the transfer. Both movies are enjoyable to watch, but the blu-ray has no extras. Quality looks great though! Funny Farm is a Chevy Chase gem- one of my favorites!
