Spies Like Us

Spies Like Us

About

Landis had a penchant for surrounding himself with friends and fellow filmmakers in bit parts, possibly for moral support or in the hope of distracting punters from the feebleness of some of his movies. The notion fails in this irritating comedy in which Aykroyd and Chase play officials who are sent on a secret mission as decoys whilst the real spies do their work.

In a nutshell
