Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the puns, one-liners, quips, and sight gags come fast and furious in this silly spy spoof from the same team that created the Airplane! films. Some of the material in the 1984 film is dated today, but most of the jokes hold up. Val Kilmer is impressive in this early role, singing, dancing, and demonstrating excellent comic timing. There are some off-color remarks and several scenes that have sexual images, though they are more ridiculous than erotic.

Sexual Content

No sex or nudity but plenty of sexual references disguised as silly jokes and sight gags, some less subtle than others.


A fair bit of slapstick violence, including battle scenes that are obviously fake and played for laughs instead of excitement.


Some mildly suggestive innuendo, but no profanity.

Social Behavior

The sides are clearly drawn in this spy spoof: the Nazis are the bad guys and the daring resistance fighters are the good guys. There's nothing subtle going on here.


Dated references to commercial products of the 1980s.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking.
