Cooper, the deputy director of the CIA, wants to be the director. So, he tries to smear the director into resigning or being removed. The director, who knows that Cooper has been bugging him, feeds him some false information--that there's a man who might be able to clear of the charges against him will be arriving at the airport, so he sends his man, Brown to meet him. Brown was just suppose to make contact with anyone at the airport thus making Cooper believe that he is the man who can help the director. Brown picks Richard cause he is wearing mismatched shoes, one of them being red. So Cooper sets up surveillance on Richard and sends his femme fatale, Maddy to come on to him and find out what he knows. While Maddy is playing, Richard actually falls for her. Written by
The other day I read again Maltin's review on this movie and found it unfairly unjust. What's the guy talking about of not letting Hanks be funny in this movie? Has he seen the same movie as I? The main strong point of this film is a normal guy ensnared in the web of stupid bunch of paranoid spies. He doesn't need to funny with more than his face that reads "Oh, my god! In what mess have I fallen into?" The rest of the team provides an incredible comedic value to the movie, acting like the dumb jerks they really are and seeing a conspiracy where there is none apart from the guys who set up the trap. Okay, the pace is uneven and some characters are overdrawn, like the two spies that follow Hank around, protecting him. But it's a nice movie to see in a pinch if you're down to an awful selection at the video store.
