De los directores Jim Abrahams, David Zucker y Jerry Zucker
La famosa estrella del rock americano Nick Rivers (Val Kilmer) llega a Alemania Oriental para presentarse a un importante festival cultural. Pero este hecho forma parte de un plan para distraer la atención del mundo exterior sobre lo que está sucediendo realmente: el Alto Mando de Alemania Oriental, encabezado por el general Streck, se propone reunir nuevamente las dos Alemanias bajo un sólo Gobierno. Pronto Nick se verá envuelto en la operación ayudando a la resistencia francesa…
This time Zucker and Abrams are spoofing, most notably, Elvis films and WWII spy movies. Val Kilmer stars as Nick Rivers, a handsome American 50s-style rock and roll singer. While performing in East Germany, he falls in love with a beautiful heroine and becomes involved with the French Resistance.
The silly homage spoof on WW II espionage films and Elvis flicks, with seemingly a thousand low-brow gags and puns (that range from raunchy anal dildo jokes to clever political ones about Ronald Reagan), was breezily directed by the trio of Wisconsin childhood friends Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and his younger brother Jerry Zucker (“Airplane!”). The filmmakers would do anything to get a laugh, even if it meant reaching for jokes that had nothing to do with the storyline. The many films parodied range from The Blue Lagoon to Casablanca. It marks Val Kilmer’s screen debut, whose charismatic performance steals the pic by setting the tone for its goofy sendoff. A few of the gags work really well, but too many miss the mark. Overall the amiable comedy is effective, except the familiar banal plot gets too murky and gets in the way of the rapid-fire jokes to put a slight damper on the broad slapstick routines.
Some East German big shot government fascists, headed by General Streck (Jeremy Kemp), plot to reunite Germany under their leadership some time in the 1950s by a secret strike to bottle up the United States fleet during a cultural festival in East Berlin. The Elvis-like American teen rock-and-roll star, Nick Rivers (Val Kilmer), is invited to perform on his goodwill tour behind the Iron Curtain when Leonard Bernstein cancels. The Commie fascists figure the world will take their eyes off them to report only on the festival, as they coincide their attack on the day of the festival. Don’t ask what happens with that storyline, as the filmmakers seemed to forget about resolving that while bringing on a prison escape film.
Nick meets in a fancy restaurant the pretty French resistance fighter named Hillary Flammond (Lucy Gutteridge), who is on the lookout to make contact with British agent Cedric (Omar Sharif), an escapee from the East Germans. He’s expected to help her imprisoned scientist father, Dr. Flammond (Michael Gough), escape from the East Germans. The Reds imprisoned the free-thinking genius scientist and forced him to turn over to them the secret weapon he created, or else face execution.
The lovebird couple team up with the French underground fighters headed by Nigel (Christopher Villier), the long lost childhood lover of Hillary who was marooned on an island with her before disappearing. Nigel’s someone she thought had died, and she’s now confused because she loves the Elvis clone and only likes Nigel because she believes they’re fighting for the same cause.
All the action scenes are constantly interrupted to make way for rock ‘n’ roll numbers that include a Beach Boys parody entitled “Skeet Surfing” and Kilmer performing his versions of “Tutti Frutti” and “Are You Lonesome Tonight?”
None of it makes too much sense, but it’s energetic, the cast seems to be enjoying themselves, it was goofy fun to see only the head of Omar Sharif who was squashed in a Mercedes Benz that was compacted at a junkyard; and, it’s hard to resist a joke about a political refugee who fled America by balloon during the Carter administration and the one about the moron East German torturer who gets all his information from the New York Post.
Top Secret! failed to measure up to the commercial success of Airplane!, as it seemed to stray too much on the wacky side in its slapstick bits to hit an ongoing momentum and the storyline seemed like only an afterthought. But it had a Marx Brothers-like anarchist’s absurdity that was irresistible, and I found its spirited irreverence to be refreshing… by Dennis Schwartz.

Quizás "Top secret", junto a la producción cumbre de Mel Brooks "Spaceballs", sea la joya de la corona de ese curioso género ochentero de humor absurdo cuyo éxito, alabado y avalado por legiones de freaks, trajo al mundo surrealistas sagas como las de "Agárralo como puedas" o "Hot shots" entre muchas otras.
Realmente las sagas citadas nunca me atrajeron demasiado por su escaso guión, ingenio y sobrado chiste fácil, pero "Top Secret" tiene esa chispa que la hace diferente. Casi precursora en su género, sorprende desde el primer minuto con su frescura, a la par que si bien el argumento es bastante risible, almenos existe y tiene un hilo conductor y algunos de sus gags son francamente originales y desternillantes.
Un joven Val Kilmer encandiló al público con su fresca interpretación, en el que le acompañaban algunas de las viejas glorias de por aquel entonces en algunos cameos estelares (Cushing, Sharif...)
Muy divertida en realidad, con gags que después de haber visto unas cuantas veces aún me hacen reír y con unas cotas de humor absurdo tan elevadas que dejan a uno perplejo en más de una ocasión, todo ello servido con una sutil crítica al gobierno comunista de la Alemania del Este.
