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.
** 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.
-->[[BeachBoys 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 [[{{Badass}} 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)...
* "No, that doesn't sound like Mel Torme."
* 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]].)
* 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 ridiculous dance routine. A ZAZ trademark they would use in ''Film/TheNakedGun''.
* 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.
** 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)''':''' It's been a hard day's night, und I've been vorking like a dog...
