Storyline

When Michael Corben, along with the rest of his high-school French class, set out for a trip to France, he runs headlong into international intrigue: Agent Michael Corbin has just been disposed of by the evil forces of Augustus Steranko. When it's learned that Michael Corbin is alive and well, and still on his way to France, he's beseiged by both the good guys and the bad guys. British Intelligence outfits him with a series of James-Bond-like gizmos, and Steranko sends more would-be assassins after him. Can Michael stop the evil Steranko's plans for European domination?

Both the Lotus Esprit and the Nissan 300ZX are US models, shown by the different lights, different body styles (that model of 300ZX was never sold in Europe, and has a French number plate over the smaller US plate mounting), and that year of Esprit was never sold with an air bag in Europe.

Perfect Spy Comedy For A Good Laugh
13 May 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're looking for a comedy that teases at every spy movie you've ever seen, then this is it. I saw the movie years ago as a teenager and loved it. While its not the most serious movie in the world, its excellent for a good time and a good laugh. That was what the movie was designed for and I believe it pulls it off well. I watched it with my loved one recently (his first time seeing it) and we laughed all the way through it. Take it with a grain of salt (after all it IS a comedy) and go in expecting nothing in particular. If you do, you'll see all of the serious spy movie scenes done with a twist of humor that will make you laugh and shout "Of course!" when something explodes for no real reason. I love the "teen spy guy" way that this movie was conducted. And I feel it wasn't rated as well as it should have been. This is a fun movie if you're in the mood for something silly. The car chase at the beginning is really neat. Love the cars. And I have to say that the scene with the female assassin at the hotel was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Its just too ridiculously classic. You will not regret it.
