Editorial Reviews

Chevy Chase has a farm, E-I-E-I-Uh-Oh. He plays a Manhattan sportswriter who ditches his career for the rural life and finds that getting away from it all can mean getting in deeper. George Roy Hill (Slap Shot) directs the laugh harvest of Funny Farm. More fish-out-of-water comedy awaits when Chase teams with fellow SNL alum Dan Aykroyd to play government desk jockeys who fake their way into becoming U.S. spies. The stars share a gleeful chemistry as agents whose limitations are limitless, and director John Landis (Trading Places) gooses along the antics of Spies like Us, a funfest that plays like a Bob Hope-Bing Crosby road movie.

Update on 11/12/11: There is a comment posted to this review that explains that this Disc is actually the correct version of the movie. Please read it if this issue concerns you.

'Spies Like Us' is a great movie. I bought this version thinking that it would have a wider view than my already purchased dvd which I could only find in full frame. I just compared it to my dvd. For this blu ray, all they did was chop some off from the top and bottom to give it the widescreen look. I thought people might to like to know.

4.0 out of 5 stars First widescreen release July 13, 2010
By Doug
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
While not classic comedies, "Funny Farm" and "Spies Like Us" have their funny moments. Both are very enjoyable Chevy Chase movies with his usual relaxed style, a combination of straight man and funny guy. He's teamed with equally funny Dan Aykroyd in the John Landis directed "Spies" which is sprinkled with some very funny cameos. The very good news about this new BD release is that both movies are presented in widescreen for the first time on home video.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great movie ruined in post production May 13, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The DVD version of this movie has a 4:3 aspect ratio and the colors are great. They did not inflict the "Hollywood Look" upon us. You can look for what this trend is by searching for "teal and orange hollywood please stop the madness."

The Blu-Ray version is 16:9 and 1080p but it is cropped from 4:3 and is slathered with the "Hollywood Look".

Whoever produced this should be ashamed of themselves. Whoever told them to do the above to this movie should be fired.

I am tempted to ask to return this video as it is painful for me to watch what they did to such a fun movie.

Edit:
When MGM did this with the James Bond series it resulted in a class action lawsuit and they lost.

Search for "MGM faces class action lawsuit over misleading aspect ratios on James Bond DVDs" and you will find the lawsuit. I'm not saying that Warner Home Video should be subject to litigation however precedence looks like it may have been set.

Hard to beat for the price. And the chance to get both in a decent transfer is great, since before this Funny Farm, the funnier of the two, was only a pan and scan DVD.

There are two types of Chevy Chase fans, ones that claim to be a fan and only like Vacation and Caddyshack, then there are ones who think Funny Farm is one of his quotable best, while also having a soft spot in their hearts for Modern Problems.
Funny Farm has a better director than it deserves, but maybe that's why it's so unassuming and humble. Part of what makes it great. Better than all the Vacation sequels. If you ever wanted to trade city life for the country, this is a movie you will appreciate.

Spies Like Us is also pretty damn funny, it gets a little too bogged down in trying to be a grand 007 spoof, and the training montage is terribly slapstick, but Chase has some choice lines. If you ever wanted to see Chevy Chase moonwalk, here is your chance. Boatloads of cameos. Frank Oz (a Landis staple), Terry Gilliam, Ray Harryhausen, Coen Bros, etc. It's easy to see how todays high concept comedies staring the likes of Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Will Ferrel owe a lot to this movie and it's ilk.

Both movies look decent, nothing surprising, soft like you expect, grain intact, no video noise or tinkering I can see,
but Spies Like Us has pretty bad audio issues, very brittle sounding and re-occuring hiss.
These films aren't Ghostbusters so they don't require pristine presentations, but they are still minor classics if you are a Chevy Chase, Dan Ackroyd, John Landis 80's comedy fans, so it's a little disappointing this is the best we'l ever get.

Will there ever be a re-mastered version of either? So probably safe buying them hopefully for the last time. That is until 4k takes over, but even if that is sooner than Bluray took over DVD, these two titles are still a very long time away from looking better, these are deep-catalog titles.

1.0 out of 5 stars No audio on either movie August 27, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Like another reviewer, I have purchased two copies of this blu ray, one new and one used. Both have the same problem - no audio. I had to turn it all the way up to hear it faintly. It's definitely the way these discs were manufactured. I don't have this problem with any other disc. I would avoid this release until they put out another copy with the bugs fixed.

5.0 out of 5 stars can't go wrong with this pack March 7, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
On time and honestly you can't go wrong with Chevy.

Spies Like us is a great movie. Chevy and Dan are bumbling Government Agents who become decoy spies. They think they are real though. Bob Hope makes an appearance as does Terry Gullium from Monty Python.

Funny Farm has Chevy moving from the city to the country with his wife. As he try's to become an author. Way to funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie. February 23, 2014
By nama
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Funny Farm has been one of my favorites since it came out. I had it on
VHS and finally got it on a disc. It still makes me smile every time I see
it and with it on Blu-ray I am hoping for many years of enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Farm / Spies Like Us January 2, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I gave this one a 5 star rating because it is 2 classic movies in 1 and for the price I couldn't pass it up. I would recommend this to add to anybody who likes funny classic movies.

Widescreen? How's the transfer?
Rest assured that this is the best Spies Like Us has ever looked on video (and probably ever will--and widescreen for the first time to boot!). The DVD release was terrible and the image has been cleaned up a bit for the blu-ray release. Be sure to get Three Amigos on its great Blu-ray edition as... Read More
