Critic Reviews of "Spies Like Us"Chicago ReaderMarch 26, 2009
Landis never bothers to account for the friendship that springs up spontaneously between these two antipathetic types, but then he never bothers to account for anything in this loose progression of recycled Abbott and Costello riffs.Time OutJune 24, 2006
The script is so patchy that most of the genuine laughs are squeezed into the first half; the rest is a rather tacky and confused extended joke about the nuclear arms race.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
There are seeds of something funny in the film's beginning and in its premise, but they are soon dissipated by so little sustained wit, and so much scenery.TV GuideJanuary 14, 2011
Landis' direction is indulgent, to say the least, with big landscapes, big crashes, big hardware, and big gags filling the screen. What he forgets is character development, that all-important factor that must exist for comedy to work well.Bullz-Eye.comSeptember 04, 2010
The movie has since become a cult classic; one that those of a certain age and gender have committed to near memory and can spout lines and scenes on command like a new Army recruit.Nolan's Pop Culture ReviewNovember 11, 2004
Often funny film boasts no less then 10 film directors on screen in small roles. Stick around for the Paul McCartney penned title song.Spirituality and PracticeAugust 21, 2004
Director John Landis likes to build elaborate cinematic toys, but this one is a comic clinker.Juicy CerebellumJuly 23, 2003
Too bad audiences didn't.Film4May 24, 2003
[An] irritating comedy in which Aykroyd and Chase play officials who are sent on a secret mission as decoys whilst the real spies do their work. Their inadequacy is matched by a jokey script of dubious morals and taste.Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)December 19, 2002
Once again proof that life is rough after Saturday Night Live.
