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

    Chevy Chase and Dan Akroyd are 2 low level government employees who are used as decoys to cover-up a highly dangerous epionage mission in Russia. When the lead team fails, it is up to them to complete the mission and save the world from nuclear destruction. Misadventures and comic hijinks make Spies Like Us a classic 80's comedy.

    Yet Another Great Movie, but Bad dvd

    'Spies Like Us' is hilarious entertainment and well worth a viewing if you've never seen it. However, buying this dvd is another story as its presentation is lackluster at best, featuring full-screen VHS-like picture and no bonus features whatsoever.

    If you're a fan of Trading Places and Coming to America, you need to watch this. It's very enjoyable and is full of cameos.

    The disk was dirty when it arrived, which caused skipping. After a thorough cleaning though, it worked fine.
