Thicker waistlines and thinner dialogue don't stop I Spy Returns from being an enjoyable reunion for the stars of the hip '60s TV series. From 1965 to 1968, Bill Cosby and Robert Culp were the ultimate "salt and pepper" duo, playing super-spies Scott and Robinson (respectively) in a show that combined Mission: Impossible intrigue with witty banter and effortless biracial chemistry (at a time when such pairings were still considered experimental). A quarter-century later, Culp was still delightfully acerbic, Cosby had become a TV icon, and I Spy Returns gave them a happy excuse to wreak havoc in Vienna, where Robinson's son (George Newbern) and Scott's daughter (Salli Richardson) are freshly minted spies subjected to unwanted fatherly meddling. It's TV fluff from start to finish, but Cosby and Culp are still cool together, even when they're buck-naked captives of a sniveling British mercenary. It ain't pretty, but it's sure to get a laugh. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice reunion, but not perfect December 29, 2004
Format:DVD
Reunion movies tend to have their faults. This one is no exception, although I would think it was better than average. Yes, they go with the silly 'the kids are taking over Dad's job, and Dad sneaks around to make sure they don't screw up' plot. However, this really shines in the same place the original series did -- the interaction and dialogue between Cosby and Culp. After all this time, they were still being those characters! Yes, while the scene where they are tied up naked might have been a little more fun if they had been a bit younger *cough*, it led to a wonderful scene. The young stars are pleasant enough, and do their best with what they're given.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice to see them together again, but ... August 6, 2010
Format:DVD
It was great to see Kelly and Scotty back together again after all these years. However, there was a vital difference in the way things were handled for this reunion movie compared to the original series: the movie was played for laughs while the original was played straight. Yes, they had lots of enjoyable banter as partners in the TV series, with plenty of joking around. But (unlike "Get Smart", their competition at the time), "I Spy" took the espionage missions seriously. Here the basic scenario is comic, with the retired agents bumbling about in an unofficial attempt to watch over their kids as they follow in their dads' footsteps.

The movie ends with Scott being asked (about the job): "Do you miss it?"
His response: "No -- just him."

As a bit of nostalgia this flick is wonderful. As a movie, it's nothing special, which was disappointing; the original series really *was* something special.

3.0 out of 5 stars A painfully obvious TV series pilot... February 3, 2011
Format:DVD
Yes, as someone who loved the original series, it was nice to see these two actors again; Culp and Cosby had real chemistry on the screen. But what spoiled the movie for me most was that this was so obviously an attempt to spin off a new TV series based on the new Kelly/Robinson characters. If you're an "I Spy" fan and haven't seen this movie, then you will certainly want to have a look. But you'll probably only watch it once, so get it as cheap as you can. Better yet, see if your local library can get it for you through interlibrary loan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reunion Movie!! August 21, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie in the early 90's,and it was nice to see Cosby and Culp together again after over 20 years since the late 60's.Although Robert Culp did not become as famous as Bill Cosby.I think Culp is a superb although unfortunately an underrated actor.I'm glad to see that this fine reunion movie will be on video soon!!

I enjoyed this reunion so to speak. The reunion show started off slow. However, it picked up pace and the old camaraderie of Cosby and Culpcame through and the pace picked up. I bought it used for small change. I suggest getting it used and save a little money. I watched this show in reruns as a boy in the 1960's. I always loved Bill Cosby in this Mr. Soctt roll, and Culp was not bad either. Both men made the show the great 60's drama and sometimes comedy that it was. I suggest watching the original 83 episodes of the show on cable. It is currently on every afternoon...

5.0 out of 5 stars I Spy Return May 25, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not as good as the series but it should not be missed. Too bad they could not have had a bit part in Eddie Murphy and Wilson movie I Spy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reunion Show November 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Scott and Robinson are back decades later. Robinson (Robert Culp) has a corner office at the CIA and college teacher Kelly Scott (Bill Cosby) barges in to confront his old pard about recruiting Scott's daughter. Together, they follow the daughter and, as it turns out, Robinson's son, on their first mission to Paris. They work well together, as always, remain convincinlgy light and amusing while tightening up for the confrontations with the bad guys when needed, and it is a satisfying reunion episode. Not nearly as lame or pointless as many reunion episodes are for other series. Love that theme music that kicked off each episode...more orchestral in this one but very appealing version.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was great.
I really enjoyed the movie. The actors were a lot older but then, so are we. I wish they had spun this off to a new series featuring the kids. That would be fantastic.
