Completely demented spy spoof from the Airplane! folk. More misfired jokes than hits, but amiably goofy, and rewards repeat viewings (though a knowledge of Yiddish might help with some jokes). Doubly amusing for Downton Abbey fans, as Jim Carter gets some of the funniest moments.

Thanks to Christoffer S for identifying the various stuntmen playing the resistance members, and Gerald Lovell, Stonefan, AgedAD and Scott Palmer for picking out faces in the crowd.
