A gang of four eyed crooks led by Kurt Bishop (McCarthy) are ripping off top dollar computer chips from a list of factories. The night they hit Dynaphase Systems, two dirty employees are staying late using company resources to develop their own plans for a security microchip worth millions of dollars. Psychopathic Bishop raids the Dynaphase facility and downloads the mainframe before the employees have a chance to completely erase their work from it. When Bishop discovers the value of the stolen, but partially erased information, he sets out after the rest of the chip design, letting nothing stand in his way. Written by

I had the same opinion until I watched it again and Paid Attention!
When I first watched this movie I was busy and half-way paying attention to the movie. I had the same negative opinion as some of the other posted reviews. I am a devoted Andrew McCarthy fan (I own all of his movies, yes even this one) and love to watch him act I thought to myself, "Maybe it's not so bad so I'll give it another try". So I watched the movie again, this time paying attention, and it was not really that bad of a movie average I'd say. It was not the best movie I'd ever seen but it was not bad either. As for the earlier comments that McCarthy can't pull off the "villain role", I totally disagree (but then again, I'm extremely partial to McCarthy's performances). He plays the villain just fine I do admit that his specialty is seducing, kissing, and making love to a woman on the screen (and there is No close second in that category) but he can pull off the villain in any role he is cast to do so.
