The Principals: Jim Abrahams – Director / Writer (writer), David Zucker – Director / Writer (writer), Jerry Zucker – Director / Writer (writer), Martyn Burke – Writer (writer). Starring Val Kilmer, Lucy Gutteridge, Peter Cushing, Omar Sharif, Michael Gough, and others.
The Premise: Nick Rivers (Kilmer in his first role) is an American rock and roll star who is touring East Germany and he gets mixed up in a scheme… oh screw it. It’s a Abrahams, Zucker Brothers movie. Hundreds of sight gags, satirical jabs, and other funny shit happens in a film that wasn’t a hit upon release but a comedy to be reckoned with in a big way.
I might even go on a limb and say it may be my favorite “ZAZ” movie. Which is saying something…
