Mason is driving a truck when he takes on his lorry Rosco a hitchhiker. Traffic police stop them for a control but they are confused for two robbers. They manage to escape in a very strange way from this situation, but just to fall in a worse one. They run to the airport trying to take the first flight available. The couple not only succeeds to have a free flight to Miami but someone give them a bag full of million dollars. Later Rosco and Mason will understand that this time they were confused for two secret agents but it is too late, now they are too deeply involved in the situation. Obviously a funny situation.

This spy spoof parodied a number of story elements from the James Bond film franchise. The movie had hostile henchmen waiters (Diamonds Are Forever (1971)); a space-shuttle (Moonraker (1979)); a wet-bike and nuclear submarine (The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)); and gold-colored grease spilled from the rear of a sports car (Goldfinger (1964)).

What can be said about this except that it's gut busting funny! If Hitchock's North by Northwest has an interesting yet quite believable identity switch (and it has), then this one works in the same way. By answering to a certain name a new identity is given to our heroes and the plot thickens. OK, the bad guy is an ultimate idiot, but that's to be taken into the account - after all this one is a comedy.
Quite a lot of stunts and many humorous punches. Slapstick at it's best and it meets up with a great storytelling talent. Not to mention it's actually a feel-good movie. It lifts your spirits with it's lightness and humor. Can't go wrong with this one!
