Review

Our Score
With films such as The Blues Brothers to his credit, John Landis forged himself the reputation of being one of Hollywood's slickest comedy directors. But this highly resistible spoof is one of his failures. Paired for the first time in a film, former Saturday Night Live alumni Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase simply fail to gel, and there's little fun to be had once the boisterous training school gags are exhausted. Cold comfort can be obtained from a brief appearance by Bob Hope, and movie aficionados can while away the time playing spot the famous film-makers in a variety of cameo roles.

Summary

Two incompetent US State Department officials are unwittingly used as decoys on a deadly mission to thwart Soviet activity in Pakistan. Unfortunately, their involvement in such a delicate operation brings the world to the brink of nuclear war. Comedy, starring Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Steve Forrest, Bruce Davison and Donna Dixon.
