Spies Like Us (1985) John Landis, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Steve Forrest

Spies Like Us (1985)
Looking for a way out of their mundane government jobs, Austin Millbarge (Dan Aykroyd) and Emmett Fitz-Hume (Chevy Chase) take the entrance exam for a CIA espionage program. Immediately chosen to take part in a top-secret mission in the Middle East by the officious Gen. Sline (Steve Forrest), the new recruits are set upon by Soviet forces in Afghanistan. Soon it becomes clear that the hapless pair are being used as decoys to expose the Russians for a Cold War nuclear showdown.

Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd were at the height of their professional careers with the 80’s “masterpiece” Spies Like Us. The cast alone makes this movie a triumph the 80’s comedy. Although the same cast today would find itself on the video shelf and not the movie theaters, for the mid 80’s this was a GIANT of a Hollywood cast. Second to only Doctor Strangelove, what other comedy is funnier when dealing with American / Russian relations during the cold war? Chevy and Aykroyd have terrific chemistry together that has been molded to perfection from their success on Saturday Night Live. The physical comedy in the first half of the movie is as funny as any Marx Brother film of its time. The comical situations that occur in the second half are as funny as any Blake Edwards production. Together, the movie is as funny as it gets for the 1980’s.
