Reviews

Before Austin Powers, before Johnny English, there were S*P*Y*S!

Capitalising on the huge success of their onscreen pairing in M*A*S*H, in 1974 this highly enjoyable espionage spoof reunited Donald Sutherland and Elliott Gould as a couple of bungling Paris-based American agents walking a tightrope in a paranoiac world of peepholes and booby-traps. Filmed largely in Paris and London, co-starring Joss Ackland and featuring the Englishlanguage debut of French icon Zouzou, S*P*Y*S is presented here in a brand-new digital transfer from original film elements.

CIA misfits Douglas Griffin and Eric Brulard are unaware of each other's existence until both turn up at the same pissoir in search of a mysterious hidden package. When the urinal immediately explodes, each is convinced that the other is a KGB assassin!

This is a new and very good copy from a 1974 film. Image and sound are good. Good, not pristine. But it has nothing to do with the quality of the copy. It is very likely that the original film had only average technical quality.

The film has no subtitles in English what is really a shame as many people who watched this film 40 years could probably do with subtitles. The lack of subtitles is the reason for four stars instead of five.

I think the film was very funny. I laughed all along but humour is very subjective, isn't it? I could trace a reference, though. If you liked the tv series "Mash" then you will find a similar kind of humour in this film.

I especially like how healthy is the humour. Healthy because free. Made in a pre political correctness era, the film has a few jokes that wouldn't be in the script of a contemporary comedy . It is actually a harmless, silly humour that
makes a good contrast with the vulgarity of some recent comedies.

Elliot Gould and Donald Sutherland are really good playing two spies and, as it says on the cover of dvd, "With spys like this who needs enemies?"

SPYS is a typical 1070s star vehicle,.After creating cinema magic in MASH the movie Suthland and Gould are reunited.Sadly this time no magic.Fair ly easy going comedy but nothing as good as MASH.
Also had a lot of problems with the DVD,I suspect the problem lies with the distributor Studiocanel/Network doing a bargain basement duplication job as i have also in the past had problems with some of there releases,especially from there British Film collection!!!!
