Movie Info

In this spy spoof, two CIA functionaries (Elliott Gould and Donald Sutherland) have been given a fairly routine task: they must arrange the defection of a Russian ballet dancer (Michael Petrovich). For some reason they bungle the whole affair, as they have many others, and, under a prior arrangement with his KGB counterpart, the CIA chief agrees to have the pair exterminated. Their efforts to survive the combined ill-will of the two most powerful spy agencies in the world involve them with a host of unusual characters.

Critic Reviews for S*P*Y*S

All Critics (1)

Donald Sutherland and Elliott Gould made a finely antic pair in MASH, but their bizarre comradeship alone does not a movie make. You also need plot, comic dialogue, sturdy characterization, and lots of other things you just won't find In SPYS.

Audience Reviews for S*P*Y*S

Another movie which pairs Sutherland and Gould, directed by Kershner (who's most famous for directing Empire Strikes Back). It's really pretty funny for the most part, and quirky too. I enjoyed it.
