So sue me if I come across as a hormone driven male, but the most redeeming quality of this movie is seeing Carrie Fischer (before she started aging, and she really hasn't aged all that well...) in a leopard skin bikini. Otherwise, you've got Tom Hanks, Dabney Coleman, and Squiggy from Laverne & Shirley in a mildly humorous spy movie about a man (Hanks), a stereotypical 'disheveled genius', who is mistaken for a spy by the US government. Predictable slapstick comedy ensues. It's certainly not a bad movie, and it has some moments, but it's not something that will stick in your mind.
