Brief Synopsis:
This is the "Spies Like Us" that you know and love, but with a little less slapstick.
As a kid in the ‘80’s, I loved Spies Like Us, and still do. It was (and still is) one of those movies that when I come across on TBS or something, I must watch. But there was an idea posted by u/gnarlin on Reddit that I liked. The idea was to cut Spies Like Us into a more serious movie. I thought, just for fun, I'd give that a shot. Well, that idea didn't really work, but from that came another idea.
While rewatching I was reminded that this movie is not just a comedy, but it is a very slapsticky comedy. Some of the jokes are way over the top. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I wondered what it would look like as a more straightforward comedy. A little more serious, but still a comedy. So, I trimmed a whole bunch of slapstick, buffoonery, silliness and things that are a little over the top.
