Storyline

Ellie DeWitt and Janis Zuckermann are admitted to the very strict FBI Training Academy. They get a hard course, in which they learn to deal with guns and to recognise crimes. They also get a physical training. It appears that Ellie is a real fighting- machine, in contrast with Janis, the great student. They have to help each other, 'cause only when they pass all the tests, they are allowed to join the FBI... Written by Tony Kessen <rhkessen@cs.vu.nl>

We really can rest at night knowing comedy is safe with Mary Gross
5 June 2003 | by (Center to Give George W a Brain Implant) – See all my reviews

This is one of my five favorite comedy movies.

Mary Gross gives an inspired and hilarious performance as the nerdy, neophyte, near-Fed.

Rebecca De Mornay is perfect as the straight foil for Mary, and Fred Thompson did a much better job of impersonating an FBI instructor than he ever did at impersonating a Senator.

Tony Longo as the sailor in the bar was also outstanding.

It also had a great beat, and was easy to dance to. I give it an 80, Dick.
