YMMV / Spies Like Us

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Yes, that is Bob Hope, in his final film role, no less, randomly playing golf through an army tent. No, we don't understand it either.
    • Beyond the clear Road to ... hat tip.
    • Dueling Movies: It did a better job than Ishtar, which was also a riff on the Road To films.
    • Justified in that Spies is an homage to Bob Hope's "Road to X" films, as well as the fact that Bob Hope was a very frequent USO performer up until his death, which would explain (sort of) why he'd be in a war zone.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Doctor, doctor, doctor." "And doctor."
  • Retroactive Recognition: Matt Frewer has a bit role as a soldier.
  • So Okay, It's Average: Often favorably described as a movie that's "just funny enough."
