Believe it or not, this is a Disney film that you have probably never heard of. Condorman is a story about a comic book writer/illustrator named Woody who agrees to help a Russian operative defect to the United States on one condition, that the US government builds Condorman’s gear so he can use them on the mission.

I loved this movie as a kid and my own children loved it also. It’s a little bit Avengers, a little bit James Bond, and a little bit Johnny English all rolled into one. One of the greatest things about this movie, in my opinion, is that the title role is played by Michael Crawford who played the Phantom of the Opera on Broadway for many years, was one of the main characters in Hello Dolly, and many other roles that didn’t involve singing, like Condorman.

This film is campy and fun and a great movie to watch with the kids.
