Top Secret (1984) – The Secret? This Movie is Really Funny

Top Secret Movie PosterI watched the movie, Top Secret last night. This is a 1984 comedy  that spoofs spy/war/60’s teeny-bopper movies that had me laughing from start to finish.

Starring a young Val Kilmer as Nick Rivers, an American heart throb musician on a cultural trip to East Germany. Along the way he gets mixed up with the French resistance (weird, I know), and has to help them foil an attempt to destroy the entire NATO submarine fleet with an atomic mine called the Polaris Mine. 

This movie is chock full of silly goodness. Always keep your eye on the background as there is a lot of  gags going on all the time. There’s a lot of eye-rolling puns, and physical gags as well as spoofs of movies that were reasonably current at the time – most would be lost on any watchers under 35 -40 years old, but don’t let that deter you – this movie is still funny. I mean, there’s an under water western bar fight, and some of the best acting by a cow that I have ever seen so WATCH IT!!!

Check out the trailer here and then go to what ever online retailer you deal with to buy a copy.
