    It had its moments. But fell short for me. That real cheesey sketch skit humor is sub par for me personally and that's all this was.

    Lesser known ZAZ comedy doesn’t hit the delirious highs of Airplane! or The Naked Gun, but it’s still incredibly silly.

    Genuinely abysmal attempt at comedic acting. Weak casting, lame jokes.

    A few things seem a little dated now, but a whole lotta things are very funny and timelessly classic! -This movie is surely underrated and overlooked all too often. But I for one shall gladly watch it another day before too long now.

    a forgotten masterpiece of elaborately set up gags and hilarious jokes.

    In 1958 breakout rock and roll star Elvis Presley was drafted into the U.S. Army, frustrating his fans while delighting his numerous detractors, fearful of a sexual revolution - which kinda happened anyway come to think of it. But what if that real event had been more like one of his goofy movies, or say more inventively, a WW2 or Cold War movie? And so Top Secret takes it's inspiration, and it's many liberties, with Val Kilmer (in his first role and doing all the singing too) as a traveling American music idol caught up behind the Iron Curtain in espionage intrigues. There's plenty of laughs interspered with plenty of Back To The Future-style (which this preceded by one year) musical numbers. Some fun.

    Everyone in the film is spot on and plays their roles brilliantly. In addition to Val, the film also has a rather robust cast including Peter Cushing, Jeremy Kemp, Michael Gough, Omar Sharif and many others. https://latetothegame.blog/2018/11/29/key-movies-of-my-life-top-secret-1984/

    Mostly for nostalgic reasons. Yes it's ridiculous, but I still do laugh my ass off when I watch it.
