As typical for a ZAZ! production, if you're not laughing every 30 seconds, it's because you're watching ''Top Secret!'' on cable and there's a commercial break.

!!But if you want examples of Funny Moments:
* Omar Sharif doing everything in his power to play the spy tropes serious, which only makes the movie funnier.
** How [[spoiler:Sharif survives the car compacter]]. At least the windshield wipers still work...
* Nick's torture at the hands of the Germans. He [[spoiler:passes out and imagines himself back in high school, the day of the big exam. When he wakes up he sees he's still being tortured.]]
-->'''Nick''' (relieved): Oh, Thank God.
* The entire scene of entering the Swedish used book store (with Creator/PeterCushing!). Filmed backward, but executed flawlessly to appear going forward (well, except for them going upward a sliding pole and the dog).
** [[ Here's the scene played forward.]] So deep is ZAZ's commitment they stuck in jokes that no one would hear!
* When Nick and Hilary make love, they roll passionately on the floor and the camera tries to discreetly turn to a nearby fireplace. But the couple rolls into view again, forcing the camera to discreetly turn ''again'' to yet another fireplace, then the two roll into view once again. This time the camera moves up to a fireplace ''on top'' of the previous fireplace.
** And when they parachute with the French Resistance to rescue Hilary's father, they embrace ''yet again'' in mid-air... with ''yet another fireplace'' floating on its own parachute.
* Skeet surfing.
-->[[Music/TheBeachBoys I wish they all could be]] [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter double-barreled guns...]]
* The national anthem of East Germany.
--> ''Hail, hail, East Germany\\
land of fruit and grape\\
land where you'll regret\\
if you try to escape\\
no matter if you tunnel under\\
or take a running jump at the wall\\
forget it, the guards will kill you\\
if the electrified fence doesn't first''
* Getting introduced to the [[LaResistance French Resistance]] fighters.
-->'''Du Quois''': This is Chevalier, Montage, Detente, Avant Garde, and Deja Vu.\\
'''Deja Vu''': Haven't we met before?\\
'''Nick''': I don't think so.\\
(Deja Vu nods, but then glares at Nick like he remembered something)\\
'''Du Quois''': Over there, Croissant, Souffle, Escargot, and Chocolate Mousse.
* "How ironic! Another day and I would have completed my tunnel!"
** And you have to see the tunnel...
** But why would he want to escape to {{Joisey}} (according to the sign in the tunnel)...
* "This is ''not'' Mel Tormé."
* Nick: "Listen to me Hillary. I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground."\\
Hillary: "I know. It all sounds like [[{{Film.Casablanca}} some bad movie]]."\\
({{Beat}}, as the two [[AsideGlance turn slowly]] [[BreakingTheFourthWall toward the camera]].)
** For added hilarity, watch the movie with someone who has never seen it before. Shout "IT IS!" After Hilary's line right before the beat. See the look on your friend's face. Priceless.
* When LaResistance is attacked in their shed, there are closeups of feet running in one direction, and then the other direction, and then breaking into a synchronized dance routine.
* Nick and Hilary's ridiculously complex dance routine. A ZAZ trademark.
* The ad-lib for the song "Spend This Night With Me".
-->''"Oh, honey dumpling, I promise I'll even be nice to your momma"''.
* UNDERWATER SALOON FIGHT. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin You heard me]].
* When [[spoiler:[[TheReveal Nigel reveals he is a traitor]]]], he picks up a rifle leaning on a tree and the tree falls over.
* The dead carrier pigeon, that Deja Vu thinks is the ''actual'' traitor in the resistance.
** For that matter, the flock of pigeons that escape [[spoiler: Nigel's]] coat when Hillary discovers he's the mole.
* "And I will miss you most of all, [[Film.TheWizardOfOz Scarecrow]]!"
* The TravelMontage which turns into a game of PacMan.
* Nick and Hillary are riding in a hay wagon on their way to see The Torch; we hear a German drinking song being sung, and assume it's the driver. But the close-up shows us that [[SapientSteed it's the horse pulling the wagon who's doing the singing]]. As Nick and Hillary get down from the wagon, the horse lets loose with a hacking cough.
--> '''Nick''' (to the driver)''':''' Is he all right?\\
'''Wagon Driver:''' Oh, yes. He caught a cold the other day, and [[IncrediblyLamePun he's just a little hoarse]].\\
'''Horse''' (as they're pulling away)''':''' [[Music/TheBeatles It's been a hard day's night, und I'fe been verking like a dog]]...
** Everybody now: "YAH, yah, YAH! YAAAAH!"
* Nick`s over the top performance of a love song (of the "slow" variety) complete with a doo-wop backing chorus. When he goes into speaking in the middle sequence (parodying Neil Sedaka), he stresses how he cannot live without "her", constantly trying to kill himself. Cue a gallows noose, a set of railroad tracks, and a gas oven ''suddenly appearing on stage''; the backing singers have to drag him out of each of them
** For that matter, how he "seduces" a young girl, who faints in his arms, only for him to literally dump her (with a laudable "thud") moments later. And the girls in the audience, reacting from the classical screaming to fainting, to getting visibly off on him...
* Chocolate Mousse's ridiculous skill with a Thompson submachine gun.
** Oh god, the safehouse shootout in general. From the impromptu tap dancing to one resistance fighter [[HeroicSacrifice "heroically"]] saving them from a grenade, it's all just hilarious and awesome at the same time. And to think that 12 years later, Val Kilmer would star in Film/{{Heat}} which is also famed for its epic shootout scene.
* Nick mistakenly performs "Tutti Frutti". The house band, who are all old men, get so worked up afterwards that they trash their instruments like [[Music/TheWho Pete Townshend]].
* In the Der Pizza Haus scene, the locals start to dance to Nick's song, parodying swing dancing. One man is swinging what is clearly a ragdoll over his head in a circle, while Nick does a backspin so epic he saws through the floor.
