Top Secret! (Movie)

The Incomparable 544: Let Go and Let Kilmer

Kilmas rolls on with Val Kilmer’s first screen role, as the Elvis-like Nick Rivers—who is sent to East Germany and falls into a plot to destroy NATO submarines. But don’t sweat it, this is “Top Secret!”, from the same people who made “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun,” so it’s really all about the jokes. So many jokes. We rave about some, and remain extremely perplexed about others. But you know who makes the whole thing work? Yep, Val Kilmer, that’s who.

Jason Snell with Philip Michaels, Lisa Schmeiser, Steve Lutz, Kelly Guimont and David J. Loehr
