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

When leaving the DDR by foot the border guard asks Jonathon "What was your purpose of visit to East Berlin?" - East Berlin was never referred to as "East" by the DDR as this would lend recognition to the occupying forces of the other side - they would have said just "Berlin" or "Berlin Haupstadt der DDR" (capital of the DDR)- they referred to West Berlin as "Westberlin" or "Berlin (west)" See more »
Quirky teen comedy with dated politics but a universal message about love
Before Anthony Edwards became one of the highest-paid actors on television, he played a milquetoast college student to perfection in this not-perfect, but still worthwhile comedy. The title refers to a stealthy dart game that he and his friends play around campus (USC?), although it ironically plays little part in the plot once he and a friend fly off to Paris for spring break to search for culture and young women. Edwards' awkward efforts at romance with a much more sophisticated European lady (the always-terrific Linda Fiorentino) hit just the right note, and the dialogue is full of sharp lines. Just as ironic as the "Gotcha" game becoming a minor plot point is that the Cold War spy subplot became hopelessly outdated when the Wall came down; but the awkward love story set in that now-bygone era will still be relevant as long as there are 18 year-olds like Edwards who look like Bambi but still yearn for love.
