Secret Service agent Bruce Thorpe and casting director Annie Clark find romance amidst the intrigue and confusion. Written by
With a bit of dark humor thrown in. This is one of my top favorite movies. Mistaken identities and foiled evil plots abound. Those concerned with its lack of "political correctness" should relax and not be so serious. One reviewer said that, if there was anyone they missed making fun of, it must have been only because they ran out of film stock. Exactly! This film has equal opportunity humor. A Japanese friend of mine, personally not known for his tremendous sense of humor, thought the film was hilarious, and has watched it several times, laughing hardest at the Japanese caricatures.
I highly recommend this overlooked gem. Get it, watch it, loosen up and laugh.
