Retro Movie Adventures: Top Secret! (1984)

Probably the best WWII/Elvis musical mashup ever .

I saw Used Cars a few months ago, and I was sad to realize it was a dated comedy, full of racism, sexism, and homophobia, with very few jokes that still worked. I am happy to report that Top Secret! is a movie full of jokes that mostly still work, with very almost no racism, sexism, or homophobia. Bonus: even though I’ve seen it several times before, it’s so packed with ridiculous jokes that my brain had forgotten a ton of them. And the jokes I did remember mostly managed to still land (the disguise to sneak into the prison is inspired).
