Samantha Caine, suburban homemaker, is the ideal mom to her 8 year old daughter Caitlin. She lives in Honesdale, PA, has a job teaching school and makes the best Rice Krispie treats in town. But when she receives a bump on her head, she begins to remember small parts of her previous life as a lethal, top-secret agent. Her old chums in the Chapter are now out to kill her so she enlists the help of a cheap detective named Mitch. As Samantha remembers more and more of her previous life, she becomes deadlier and more resourceful. Both Mitch and Charly proceed to do the killing thing, the bleeding thing and the shooting thing.

In the first draft of the script, the name "Sam Caine" was not an alias used by Charly Baltimore (as it is in the finished film) but was instead a creation of her mind, as an anagram of "amnesiac". See more »
During the scene when Sam is first cutting the carrot, she is shown cutting with two separate motions, depending on the shot. Generally, in shots where only her hands are visible, she is cutting by pivoting the knife against the board, raising and lowering the blade at the rear; in long shots, she is chopping by swinging the knife up and down from her wrist, raising and lowering the point.

I'm leaving the country, Mitch. I need a fake passport and I need money, lots of it.
Well why didn't you say so? Hold on a minute while I pull that outta my ass.

Why this movie did so poorly is beyond me. With movies like the Waterboy and anything else Sandler does making millions, you have this true gem of a film. Geena Davis is radiant and I feel, convincing in a very physical action role. Step aside Sigourney. Samuel L. Jackson is and always an asset to what ever project he works on.
Sit back and enjoy. But with all movies of this genre ,place tongue firmly in cheek, because "WHOA", there's some stretching going on in here.
A true action fans delight. 8 out of 10.
