Jonathan plays a game called Gotcha in which he hunts and is hunted by other students with paint guns. After a big win, he goes off for a vacation in France where he meets the sexy Sasha who says she is only interested in him because he is a virgin. She takes him with her to East Germany where they are separated and he has to escape back to the west on his own, all the while being trailed by East German spies. He arrives home only to find the game is still going on, and a canister of film is in his backpack. Then Sasha re-appears. Written by

The film's title refers to a real-life live-action game which was popular on American university campuses during the 1980s. 'Rating The Movies' said "the title refers to a campus game where players hunt one another with paint-pellet guns". The home video release described it as a "school's mock assassination game" whilst the DVD sleeve defines it as a "campus-wide paint-ball game". "Gotcha!" also refers to the vocalization that is usually exclaimed when a participant of this game scores a successful hit on a target. See more
When Jonathan returns to Los Angeles and first discovers the film that he inadvertently smuggled out of East Germany, it appears to be a canister of 35 mm film with an inch or two of film sticking out of the canister. Had the film already been used to photograph anything, it would not have had any film visible, as the camera would have been used to rewind all of the film back into the canister before the canister was removed from the camera. As presented in the movie, Jonathan appears to have smuggled an unused roll of film. See more
