Movie Info

SCTV alumnus Dave Thomas manned the megaphone for the direct-to-video Experts. John Travolta was between career highs when he agreed to appear in this anachronistic cold-war comedy.

Audience Reviews for The Experts


"The Experts is a silly bad film. But I can't help but have kinda loved it. I mean the plot alone is laughable. The acting is so cheesy and the dance scene between Travolta and Preston is something to be seen. I have never laughed so hard while cringing at the same time. I love the music and the clothes are fantastic. The big teased hair and odd mismatched clothing really puts you back in that era. If your in the mood for a silly film that you can just have fun with, then this would be a perfect film for you. I would probably see this again just for a good laugh."
