Campy and Fun Comedy
9 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fun, tongue-in-check espionage movie, similar to the campy Disney flicks "That Darn Cat" and "The Moon Spinners". Even the production style and cinematography are similar. The main difference is that the Disney movies have more polished story-lines with better actors.

The protagonist is Candy Hall, a teenager who attends an all-girls school for daughters of diplomats around the globe (hence the frightened girls). While visiting the embassy of one of her girlfriends, Candy witnesses a murder and so her life of a spy begins under the assumed name of "Kitten"...

Because the movie does not take itself seriously, the horrible acting and outrageous antics provide non-stop comedy. Clearly, this movie was not intended to depict genuine political intrigue or high drama, and if this is what you are looking for, then stick with movies like the "Bourne" franchise. It's the random scenes (the careening bus, the pouncing cat, the tennis match, etc.) that provide unexpected comical elements. So if you want entertaining 60's style fun and camp, this movie is perfect.
