Top Secret
Genre: Action / Comedy / Romance

Continuity: In the first shot of the prison cell, a food processor and its parts can be seen on the shelves. These are gone in subsequent shots
Plot Outline: Parody of WWII spy movies in which an American rock and roll singer becomes involved in a Resistance plot to rescue a scientist imprisoned in East Germany

Nothing is safe (especially stereotypes), where the 50's Rock n Roll era (Elvis flicks); Espionage films and Hollywood Movies (such as Blue Lagoon and Wizard of Oz) hit mocksville. But while rock 'n' rolling with the Nazis, it also manages to poke fun at itself along the way, because really it's just one big joke with the little ones feeding off it. The lively premise is simply unhinged with a wild range of rapid-fire gags (the under-water saloon brawl being my favourite) and crazy musical segments, which are loosely tied to the thin central story. It doesn't wallow on about things, as there's always one joke after another, which mostly comes off and if not, it's quickly forgotten. Plus you got little diverting actions going on in the background behind the main dig, which can raise smirk. Amongst the many droll wisecracks in the script, are some smart jibs.

Jim Abrahams and David Zucker, the people who brought you "Airplane," brought you this one as well. Actually, this is the first theatrical film they made, after their success with "Airplane."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
