Rating: 2/5 -- The blockbuster action thriller genre is ripe for sending up, but this lazy effort has to go down as a miss despite the presence of spoofmeister Leslie Nielsen. Full Review
[A] haphazardly executed send-up. Full Review
...[Nielsen] brings the same spirit of deadpan comic earnestness to the role that he brought to his intrepid police lieutenant in the NAKED GUN series...
New York Times
Rating: 2/5 -- Sporadically funny, but never more than a sting of crude gags. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- The jokes come in sporadic volleys rather than the steady machine-gun pace of The Naked Gun and Airplane!, and, with a few exceptions, they are less truly aimed. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/4 -- As funny as Nielsen can be, like all comic actors he still needs the quick-thinking jokes and zingy one-liners to be genuinely funny. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- Spy Hard just comes off as a long commercial. And yes, that means most of the best moments you've seen in the movie's trailer. Full Review
In this spoof of effects-heavy action films and James Bond thrillers, Nielsen plays Agent WD-40, who gets called back into duty when a madman thought to have been killed 15 years earlier resurfaces.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
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!
As the film's title suggests, "Spy Hard" is an all-out spoof of action and espionage films, in the same vein as the "Airplane" and "Naked Gun" movies. As with those films, the plot (about an armless madman attempting to takeover the world) merely provides an excuse for non-stop sight gags, puns, celebrity cameos and of course, film parodies. Some of the movies spoofed include "Speed," "Mission: Impossible," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Pulp Fiction," and even "Sister Act."
