The Hell With This Podcast #44 - "Top Secret!" (1984)

Ep. 44 - "Top Secret!" (1984)

Falling in line with the Zucker Brothers' history of slapstick comedy, "Top Secret!" is no exception to the rule.  It's a movie that eluded Chad for the duration of its existence... Yet, somehow, it's one of Mark's treasured favorites (he gives it a 9 out of 10 star rating).  The boys sit back, relax and try to figure out if there's an actual story to this thing, or if it's only a ploy for sight gags.  Oh, and it's the first movie Val Kilmer ever did (according to imdb).

I actually watched this again not too long ago. Fits right in there with the Airplane, Naked Gun, Hot Shots crowd. I still love a good sight gag but timing and context are critical. Something that's been lost to the ages I think.
