PROBABLY NOT WORTH WATCHING, EVEN FOR THE CURIOUS.
21 March 2004 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews



This slapdash comedy, loosely directed by Hal Kanter, concerns an effort by three U.S. government agencies, Army Intelligence, the C.I.A. and the F.B.I. to regain a stolen microchip that would allow the Soviet Union, if it obtained the item, to control Middle Eastern oil supplies, but the chip is unmindfully in the possession of a young woman played by Deborah Raffin who must subsequently evade not only Federal agents but an amorous young man as well, accompanied by his two friends; obviously created solely for light entertainment, the silly film has slipshod production values, but all involved seem to be enjoying themselves, which is worth something, some witty lines are scattered amid foolish slapstick, and Raffin is appealing as the pursued.
