Top Secret is a relatively unknown comedy film made in 1984. It stars Val Kilmer in his first feature role. In my humble opinion it is one of the funniest movies I have ever watched. The film was made by the ZAZ trio, David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker. These fellows made Airplane and the Naked Gun series.
The humour in Top Secret is very much the same as in those other movies. Cornball jokes, misinterpretation amongst characters and cockamamie situations. But there is one scene in Top Secret that should go down as one of the greatest humour sequences in film. The “Cow Scene.”
The shootout scene.
