Teamed together for the first time in Spies Like Us, Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd need a subteen audience for their juvenile humor.

Spies is not very amusing. Though Chase and Aykroyd provide moments, the overall script thinly takes on eccentric espionage and nuclear madness, with nothing new to add.

Chase and Aykroyd are a couple of bumbling bureaucrats with aspirations for spy work, but no talent for the job. They unknowingly are chosen for a mission, however, because they will make expendable decoys for a real spy team headed by pretty Donna Dixon.

Much of the time, Aykroyd is fooling with gadgets, Chase is fooling with Dixon and director John Landis is fooling with half-baked comedy ideas.
