Storyline

A pre-story sequence with Lance Henriksen as a super-spy and an opening credits obviously ripping off the James Bond themes gives hope for a spy story or spoof in the Bond mode. However, the story quickly opens with former USA gymnastics champion Kristie Phillips in the lead role as the spy's unknowing gymnast daughter who gets caught up in the spy's attempts to keep Ukranian missile launch codes from falling into the wrong hands. Sarah Douglas shows up as the Soviet spy trying to get the codes back and willing to kill anyone to get them including Phillips' Mother and brother. Tim Thomerson also appears as a journalist reporting on the gymnasts who gets caught up in the events. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

A hilarious mistake
18 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is awfully excellent. It is impossible to believe that it was not made as a spoof of the made-for-TV movie. Every single frame contains the most trite, amateurish and inept writing, filming, and acting I have ever seen. It is absolutely stunning, and one needs to watch it several times to be able to comprehend how many bad things are going on at any given moment.

From the pre-title scene, in which a woman exposes her breasts nonchalantly for possibly the longest and most inappropriate amount of time I've ever witnessed, all the way through the gymnastics, the cheesy tight red-shorted spy who mouths the words of the other actors as they are speaking . . . the costumes, the men in drag who play the Romanian gymnasts, this is but a sampler of what you can see in this incredible picture.

If someone does not release this on DVD and promote it, a priceless artifact of 1990s cinema is in danger of being lost. I had to buy it on ebay as used VHS. PLEASE re-release this movie, it could have a cult following. I am terrified that my VHS version will not last until I die.
