This anti-establishment comedy from the writers of
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
was filmed as a Dudley Moore vehicle, but the result pleased nobody. After previews, the movie was recalled, rewritten and partially reshot, incorporating a very expensive Eddie Murphy (hot from
Beverly Hills Cop
), billed awkwardly as "Strategic Guest Star". They weren't kidding! It still doesn't work, but it's fascinating to see how Murphy was filmed without interfacing with the rest of the existing cast and action. The anti-Russian material is tasteless and the comedy genuinely unfunny, but Kate Capshaw (Mrs Steven Spielberg) and Helen Shaver make it watchable to a degree.
An engineer gets mixed up with the KGB and FBI while trying to complete a super-powered tank for the US military, while the soldier given the thankless task of testing the vehicle suffers a series of mishaps. Comedy, starring Dudley Moore and Eddie Murphy.
