Spy Hard

Revealing mistake: When WD-40 is parachuting onto the island at the beginning, he throws a match through his parachute. As the shot changes, you can clearly see the smoke canister that was producing the effect of the parachute being on fire, swinging from beneath the canopy.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene near the end of the film, when Steele gets out of a Volkswagen Beetle, as he opens the car door the reflection of the cameraman and some crew members are visible.

Factual error: When WD-40 is at the restaurant, the waiter starts talking about himself. He tells the agent he drives a 1969 Ford Pinto, but the Pinto wasn't introduced until 1971.

Trivia: When Dick Steele rides the horse into the elevator, the two people already in the elevator are Loren Janes and his wife Ginger. They both appeared in the movie "True Lies" which is parodying the scene portraying the same couple in the same situation. Loren Janes even provided the stunts for this movie too.


Agent Steve Bishop: Sir, we have intercepted a disturbing video on the rock of gabraltar.
The Director: Well, what is it?
Agent Steve Bishop: It's this really big rock sticking out of the water on the south coast of Spain.

Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: You carry a UB-21 Schnauzer with a Gnab silencer. That's KGB. You prefer an H&K over an A.K. Your surveillance technique is NSA. Your ID is CIA. You received your Ph.D. at NYU. Traded in your GTO for a BMV. You listen to CDs by R.E.M. and STP. And you'd like to see J.F.K. in his BVDs, getting down with O.P.P. And you probably put the toilet paper back on the roll with the paper on the inside.

Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: Operator, get me Washington.
Operator: George?
Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: D.C.

More quotes from Spy Hard


Question: In the wrestling scene, Leslie Nielsen tags Hulk Hogan who ultimately tags another lady in a red dress. The actress appears to be Joyce Brothers. Is her presence a spoof or am I missing something else here?

Neil Jones

Chosen answer: The lady in the red dress is definitely Dr. Joyce Brothers. Her presence is not a spoof of anything. Just another way to add humor to an already humorous movie.
