Top Secret! Reviews

October 18, 2011
The plot combines the rock musical with the spy thriller (not to mention assorted other genres), and the comic invention is fairly constant.

Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker present a narrative that is hopelessly convoluted, but that, of course, is exactly their intention as they pile joke upon joke, filling their film with inventive sight gags.

This time, though, the creative group has neglected to build to the kind of giddy, everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink climax that made Airplane! such a memorable exercise in anarchy.

Featuring cows wearing boots, a scene involving skeet surfin' (filmed in Cornwall of all places), and French characters named 'Déjà Vu' and 'Avant Garde', this is an absurd comedy that hits far more times than it misses.
October 18, 2011
Jokes so stupid as to seem almost surreal, an amazing range of cultural referents and a smattering of genuinely witty conceits.

The story has almost no momentum and runs out of gas, ending abruptly, but how can you knock a movie with so many gut-busting jokes?

I found its spirited irreverence to be refreshing.

Secret! shares the same wonderful wacky attitude that allows just about any kind of gag to come flowing in and out of the picture at the strangest times.

Memorable both for its spoofing of a wacky combination of Elvis movies, spy movies and Second World War intrigue films and for the fact that it's Val Kilmer's film debut.

I could never figure out why this comedy-packed gem bombed during its day until I saw it again and realized how juvenile it is. Nevertheless, my memories of it helped me enjoy it once again.

Signs of desperation have begun to creep in some time before the end.

This movie will cheerfully go for a laugh wherever one is even remotely likely to be found.

Top Secret! comes nowhere near Airplane! but in its own cheerful, low-pressure way, it's about as amiable an entertainment as you will find this summer.

One of the funnier post-Airplane! free-for-alls

Another piece of loony bin entertainment from the Abrahams-Zucker chuckle factory...inspired in its wickedly silly-minded skin
| Original Score: 3/5

Intermittenly funny, but no Airplane!

The people making it seem to have enjoyed it more than I did.

There are no good white basketball players, my friend. Just this inspired two-for-one send-up of WWII pictures and Elvis movies.
