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.

Typical Spencer/Hill product, this time they get entangled into some Secret Agent stuff, all because of misunderstandings. The overall plot works fine and the movie flows well. However, I find this as a lesser good Spencer/Hill effort because of this one is too much of the same. Rather predictable, though not directly boring; there are many excellent moments here too, topped with a (bit different) big fight scene at the end. Not bad in overall, just less good than earlier efforts.
In sum, this one is a bit uneven. I like it still, but it lacks something. Good nevertheless. Recommended mostly for fans. 3.5/5.
