Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd star in this Cold War farce as two complete misfits who aspire to spy for the CIA. Much to their surprise, they are trained as operatives and sent to Central Asia. But the biggest secret of their covert operation is that they are expendable decoys--for another team of agents sent on the real mission--and no one expects them to survive.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Despite the comedic prowess of its director and two leads, Spies Like Us appears to disavow all knowledge of how to make the viewer laugh.

Dated '80s comedy has strong language, few laughs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Spies Like Us is a 1985 comedy-adventure starring old-school SNL alums Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd. Most negative content is pretty mild: some gunfights, fistfights, and bad guys with knives and swords, but no blood or gore; women in bras and underwear (including a brief glimpse of a poster in the background with topless women), implied sex, and a few kisses. A man grabs and holds a woman's breasts for a minute or so before she moves his hands away. Some dated sexism ("putting out" after a date, etc.) offers a chance to talk about how women are portrayed in movies, and whether that's changed much since the '80s. Profanity isn't frequent but is sometimes strong, including "d--k," "p---y," and "bulls--t." There's some drinking, and some body-part humor. Role models and positive messages are weak in this comedy that's meant to entertain.
