Spies Like Us (1985) Official Trailer - Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd Movie HD


Spies Like Us is a 1985 American comedy film directed by John Landis and starring Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Steve Forrest, and Donna Dixon. The film presents the comic adventures of two novice intelligence agents sent to the Soviet Union.

Chuck drew heavily on the film, including imitating its often rapid change of tone from comedy to peril.

The show features a few Spies like us Easter eggs. Apart from using Chevy Chase as a guest star, one of the listening devices (bugs) is designated GLG20, which was the spies designation in the movie.

Also, the Buy More store assistant manager was named Emmet Milbarge, which is similar to Chevy Chase character name in the movie, Emmit Fitz-Hume & Dan Aykroyd's character Austin Milbarge.

In one episode Chuck impersonates a doctor. He is then in a room with two other doctors who all greet each other with the word "doctor". This scene is almost identical to a scene in the movie, right down to the dialogue spoken.
