More of a cinematic joke book than a real movie, Spy Hard hits you with gags faster than Henny Youngman on speed. Even when individual bits misfire, the unrelenting barrage of silliness can break down your resistance. 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

...[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
May 24, 1996
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

Never mind that the smutty, high-tech 007 capers already wink at the conventions of the bikini-clad, gizmo-strewn genre. If the martini is shaken, not stirred, why beat it to death with a swizzle stick? Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Yet another Leslie Nielson movie parody, targeted this time at James Bond pictures and their many spinoffs. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor

Rating: C- -- Spy Hard is a loose send-up of the Bond series and other overly expensive action flicks, but after Hot Shots! Part Deux and National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 who needs another action parody? Full Review

Product Description:

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.:

Spy Hard
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!

Plot Synopsis:

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."
