Top Secret! (8/9) Movie CLIP - Underwater Barfight (1984) HD

    Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS:
    Nick (Val Kilmer) and the Torch (Christopher Villiers) duke it out in an undersea saloon.
    The second of Zucker-Abraham-Zucker's theatrical-feature spoofs (Airplane was the first, discounting the patchwork Kentucky Fried Movie), Top Secret! lampoons practically every film genre. Specifically, however, this is a hybrid of an "Elvis" movie and a World War II "underground resistance" thriller. In his film debut, Val Kilmer plays Nick Rivers, a Presley-like American rock idol sent behind the Iron Curtain on a goodwill tour. Before long, he is involved in a complex espionage scheme thanks to beautiful Lucy Gutteridge, the daughter of a scientist (Michael Gough) held captive by the Communists. Also essential to the action is flamboyant resistance leader Christopher Villiers, who behaves like Victor Mature in Betrayed (1954) and talks like James Mason. Adhering to Z-A-Z's cheerful disregard for people, places and events, the East Germans are depicted as Nazis, while the Underground is comprised of Frenchmen. The plot is mainly an excuse for the Z-A-Z team's fondness for joke-a-minute lampoonery, skewering cinematic targets ranging from The Blue Lagoon (1980) to The Wizard of Oz (1939). As in Z-A-Z's other efforts, Top Secret! scores its biggest yocks when invoking cliches that we never realized were cliches-and falls on its face whenever attempting a too-obvious gag (the biggest clinker: that pigeon statue in the park). Everyone has his or her favorite bits in this film: our faves include the resistance fighter named Deja Vu ("Haven't we met somewhere before?"), Kilmer's horrible nightmare while being tortured (he arrives too late to take final exams), the army-booted cow, the sensitive Pinto, and the East German National Anthem, sung to the tune of the Shorewood (Wisconsin) High School marching song. But let's say no more: comedy of this nature is designed to be seen, not written or read about.

    They have filmed such difficult and dangerous underwater scene just for the sake of a silly gag. That was the time when the actors really deserved their big money.

    Like the fact that they even didn't bother to find a body double with blond hair :-D. Then again, good underwater stuntmen are perhaps not easy to get hold of at all. Really well made scene in any case. And perhaps my favourite movie of all time.

    I found this more impressive than any Marvel CGI scene. Real stunts and real underwater fight. Movies need to get back to real practical effects and not the computer schlock we get now.

      @Kobe Denzel not really, I mean look at Airplane SpaceBalls and the whole mid 90's late 80's comedy had a great quality of zing. Oh and the whole naked gun series.
      Really comedy on movies at least has taken few too many steps from cleverness.

      Watch a video called Why CG Sucks (Except It Doesn't) by: RocketJump Film School. You'd be surprised how so much CGI is used in all modern films that you _never_ even recognize as CGI unless someone told you.

      @Artūras Adomavičius The crowd scenes in Les Miserables, Matrix (though that looked pretty fake), the armies in LoTR and Narnia movies, every single car but the two main ones in Mad Max: Fury Road, etc.
