Overview
If you were sitting around wondering if the guys who brought you Airplane! and The Naked Gun are crazy, the answer is "yes." And Top Secret! proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt! Top Secret! pits American rock star Nick Rivers (Val Kilmer) against the dreaded East German High Command. It's a race against time as Nick teams up with Hillary Flammond (Lucy Gutteridge) to find her father before he can create the ultimate super weapon – the Polaris Mine. Along the way, Top Secret! manages to do for war epics and Elvis films what Airplane! did for disaster movies.
