The Trouble with Spies is a 1987 film directed by Burt Kennedy. A spy spoof comedy, it stars Donald Sutherland and Ned Beatty.[1]

The film was shot in 1984, but not released until three years later. It includes one of veteran actress Ruth Gordon's final performances.


When secret agent George Trent goes missing, spy agency chief Angus sends inept colleague Appleton Porter to the isle of Ibiza to find out why.

Appleton meets a number of guests in Mona Lewis's hotel who were familiar with Trent, but none has a clue what became of him. Appleton himself is totally clueless, nearly being killed a number of times but surviving mainly due to pure dumb luck.
