The Director tells Brown to just pick someone who is arriving 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, ... Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Quotes

Ross: [Talking about Cooper] He made the mousetrap himself. All we did was feed him a piece of cheese.
Brown: About this piece of cheese, sir. What's going to happen to him?
Ross: What?
Brown: Wouldn't it bother you to send an innocent man to his grave?
Ross: Are you serious? We're talking about my career.
Brown: But I'm the one who picked him, sir.

An underrated and very funny movie
11 June 2002 | by (Woodinville, WA) – See all my reviews

Some very funny lines and situations permeate this movie. Tom Hanks does a great job of being a very likable "every guy" in the film, but some of the funniest lines belong to Jim Belushi as his best friend. Dabney Coleman and Charles Durning do well with their parts as competitive agents of the CIA and FBI. If you like spy movies with a twist, check out this under-rated comedy.
