Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Leslie Nielsen's comic gifts are undisputed, but Spy Hard's lazy script and slapdash direction fail to take advantage of them.

Spoof action movie has slapstick violence, innuendo.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Spy Hard is an action movie parody starring Leslie Nielsen that spoofs classic films and iconic moments in cinema, and has slapstick violence and frequent innuendo. Nelson plays Dick Steele, codename Agent WD-40, who is tasked with stopping megalomaniac General Rancor (Andy Griffith) from destroying the planet. Steele is a bumbling fool often aided by female love interests and colleagues, although they are mostly sidelined. Some of the comedy also plays to damaging stereotypes, such as Asian characters fighting using martial arts and Steele pretending to be different ethnicities for undercover purposes. Though the violence is slapstick, some set pieces involve over-the-top dismemberment and death. But no realistic blood or gore is shown. Along with lots of innuendo, there are a couple of suggested sex scenes, but the camera cuts away before any nudity or intercourse is shown. Alcohol and cigarettes do feature, usually when they are part of a joke.
