Okay, not a Christmas movie, BUT . . .

23 Dec

Spies Like Us!! A classic Cold-War era comedy about the bunglings of the CIA to test a Star-Wars type of laser defense system, defending the continental US against a Soviet nuclear attack. How do you test such a weapon?? You send a team of spies into Russia to LAUNCH a nuke at Detriot!

How in the world does the CIA intend to pull this off? By sending the two biggest idiots they could find (portrayed by Chevy Chase and Dan Ackroyd) as decoys, enabling the real team to achieve the objective.

This John Landis movie has more guest stars than an episode of the Love Boat. If you haven’t seen it (or haven’t seen it in a while), WATCH IT!! There is even a cameo by Bob Hope, who was an INSTITUTION of the Christmas holiday for years!!!
