Storyline

Ed Okin's life is somewhat out of control. He can't sleep, his wife betrays him, and his job is dull. One night, he starts to drive through Los Angeles, and he finally ends in the parking garage of Los Angeles International Airport. Moments later, a beautiful young lady jumps onto his bonnet and he finds himself being chased by four Iranians. What follows is a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles, and a very funny one too. Written by Harald Mayr <marvin@bike.augusta.de>

One of my all time favorites!
9 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Somehow everything clicked in this film for me, and I just love it. I've mainly seen it quite a few times on TV, but also have rented it and prefer the uncensored version. (After all, Michelle Pfeiffer nude scenes are pretty rare!) I've read that this was a vehicle for numerous friends of the producers to appear in quick "cameos" (a la Hitchcock, not playing themselves and mostly just background), and I'm still trying to find where Steven Spielberg appears. But overall, it is just the perfect blend of mystery, adventure, comedy & tragedy, and satisfying ending, and all are right on. OK, it's no major classic, just some lightweight fun, but after almost 20 years (I'm writing this in 2004) I recall few other films that for me match this one for "Oh, that was a cool flick; I think I'll watch it again." If you missed this I highly recommend it, without reservation.
