Spy Hard is a 1996 American spy comedy film parody starring Leslie Nielsen and Nicollette Sheridan, parodying James Bond movies and other action films. The introduction to the movie is sung by comedy artist "Weird Al" Yankovic. It is the first film to be written by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. The film's title is a pun of Die Hard. The film is directed by Rick Friedberg and produced by Doug Draizin and Jeffery Knovitz.
The film was released by Buena Vista Pictures on May 24, 1996, receiving generally negative reviews from critics. While many praised Nielsen's acting and its humor, most found the script, story and its direction lame. The film eventually grossed $26 million against a production budget of $18 million, making it a relative success.
