Editorial Reviews

Here's the outrageous comedy hit that blends high-tech adventure with high-spirited humor for nonstop laughs! Big-screen funnyman Leslie Nielsen (NAKED GUN 33 1/3, AIRPLANE!) is the hilarious Agent WD-40, lured back into service by The Agency. Teamed with the sexy agent 3.14 (Nicollette Sheridan -- BEVERLY HILLS NINJA), he's sent on his hardest mission ever ... to stop the evil General Rancor (Andy Griffith -- TV's MATLOCK) before he destroys the world! With high-flying laughs and high-voltage action, SPY HARD is the wackily entertaining comedy hit that has audiences everywhere howling!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, yet it does entertain November 23, 2002
Leslie Nielsen is Dick Steele, code named Agent WD-40. When his deceased girlfriend's daughter, Barbara Dahl, (both played by Stephanie Romanov), is captured by the evil General Rancor (Andy Griffith), Agent Steele is sent to rescue her and to stop the General from his evil plans. With the help of the beautiful Veronique Ukrinsky (Nicolette Sheridan), there is a 'slim and remote' possibility that they might succeed! Will the duo be able to save the world? Also starring is Charles Durning as The Director who has a love for 'camouflage and disguises', Marcia Gay Harden as Miss Cheevus (say her name real fast ;), Barry Bostwick as Norman Coleman, and Elya Baskin as Professor Ukrinsky.
Just looking at the names of the characters, I'm sure you suspect that this movie will have lots of puns, silly jokes, slapstick comedy, and stupid scenes. Your right! It's amazing how much silliness could be incorporated into this movie which parodies all forms of spy and action movies! The jokes at times work well though at times they fall completely flat. Also the same jokes are used a lot and come off a bit boring after many repeats. But some scenes do come off right and made my family roll off the couch laughing! Some of my favorite scenes:
*Leslie Nielsen's 'kung fu' against the Russian agent.*
*Leslie Nielsen and Nicolette Sheridan making those ridiculous faces at each other in the airplane!
*The last 'battle' with the good guys versus the evil guys.
But ultimately, 'Weird Al' Yankovic's opening credits is the best part of the whole movie! It was so extremely funny, he makes fun of some of 007 movie's opening credits. I gave this movie an extra star because of the great 'Weird Al' Yankovic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly FUNNY July 15, 1999
By A Customer
Forget all the panners, downers and other pooh-pooh'ers. This thing is one laugh riot after another. Too many to mention. Give it a rest, guys. This is a parody, a spoof. I laughed all the way through even after the THIRD time I watched.

I loved this movie! It is a must see for anyone with a slight sense of humor. I was rolling in the ailes, and Yankovic's theme blows me away (Pun intended!)

Okay, this is a dumb movie. What little plot there is only serves to connect a loosely arranged set of parodies and puns in true Leslie Nielsen form. However, if you're in the right mood, it can be a entertaining way to spend an hour and a half. Leslie Nielsen plays agent WD-40 who sets out to rescue agent Barbara Dahl (Stephanie Romanov) from the evil and prosthetic clutches of Doctor Rancor (Andy Griffith.) Beginning and end of story. Along the way, viewers are treated to send-ups of various movies and celebrity personalities. The humor is erratic, as the script is burdened with groaners and jokes that simply don't work as much as it is carried along with its laugh out loud moments. The sophomoric comedy often works because of the element of surprise: the best laughs come when the viewer is least expecting them. It helps if you're familiar with many of the films that "Spy Hard" parodies. The only brilliant part of this film is the Weird Al Yankovic segment during the opening credits. It is so funny on its own that it warms up the audience for more laughs. I don't think I would have been so willing to find humor in the silliness if Weird Al hadn't already started me laughing.
This is pure sophomoric, spoof comedy in the spirit of National Lampoon and Saturday Night Live - all, of course, with the distinctive touch of Leslie Nielsen. Leave your intelligence at the door - and then settle down for some truly mindless, occasionally hilarious, comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars HYSTERICAL March 18, 2005
I am a huge fan of Leslie's goofball movies and outside of his Naked gun flicks,i thought this was the funniest. In fact,it's quite similar to the Naked gun movies as far as what Leslie does in the story and that cant be a bad thing! Very funny movie,and yes of course quite ridiculous!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Terrible, but Not Great either August 22, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
I'm going to have to agree with most of the previous reviewers in saying that this is indeed not the best of films compared to other spoofs out there.
Spy Hard, following in the footsteps of Date Movie, Epic Movie, Shriek if You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th, and the Scary Movie series, is a parody of several films including James Bond, Home Alone, Pulp Fiction, and even Jurassic Park among others.
It is a humorous movie... at times. The casting is good, though most of the dialogues could have been a lot better. What it comes down to is that they could have and should have worked on the humor much more.
The girls are a great addition; Nicolette Sheridan was simply AMAZING!
Short appearances by Fabio, Hulk Hogan, Weird Al Yankovic, Ray Charles, and others did nothing really to significantly improve the mediocrity of this movie.
Overall, far from being a masterpiece, it just might provide for an evening's entertainment if one is in a really silly mood and/or intoxicated.

3.0 out of 5 stars not Leslie's best January 6, 2004
By steve
I was expecting a lot more from this movie. A lot of the jokes fall flat. Think of National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1. Although Spy Hard is not as horrible as that one, it still in no way measures up to the greatness of Airplane! or the Naked Gun movies. This movie is probably worth a rental from your local video store, but I wouldn't recommend buying it. The best part of this movie is the opening title sequence by Weird Al Yankovic. It spoofs the typical James Bond opening credit sequence. When I first saw that at the theater, I almost fell out of my seat from laughing so hard. The opening credits alone may be the best reason to see this movie. After that, it's a so-so movie with some funny parts but mostly gags that fall flat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leslie Nelson is always funny
While not his best movie, Leslie Nelson did an excellent job in this film, as did the rest of the cast. A lot of the plot of this movie pokes fun at the cliches in spy movies.
