International men of mystery like James Bond and Derek Flint may be pretty good at what they do. Hell, even Austin Powers tends to get the job done when he needs to. But for every suave, badass, and successful super spy we know and love in movies, there are those who, how shall we say this gently, really suck at their jobs.

Sometimes this is because they’re not actually spies, but everyday people thrust into extreme circumstances, sometimes their ineptitude is played for comedic value, and other times they’re simply just not very skilled when it comes to espionage. We thought we’d run through some of our favorite inept, dim witted, and otherwise hapless spies. Let us know how we did and if we missed your favorite lackluster secret agent.

Emmett Fitz-Hume And Austin Millbarge, Spies Like Us
Emmett Fitz-Hume (Chevy Chase) and Austin Millbarge (Dan Aykroyd) are not good spies. But in their defense, the leads of John Landis’ 1985 Spies Like Us were not supposed to be. They play a pair of bumbling, if earnest, low-level government employees who are lead to believe they’re now secret agents while in reality they’re decoys for the real deal. They’re slackers and misfits, not to mention horny, and my just be the best chance we have to avert a nuclear war. God help us all.
