When her doctor recommends that a widow pursue her unfulfilled life ambitions, he doesn't realize that she has always wanted to be a spy. Sending a letter to her congressman gets her an interview with the CIA and accidentally gets her an assignment to Morocco for a supposed easy task of picking up an encrypted code book. When the agency realizes their mistake, they send a super-agent to watch over her. Both are taken prisoner and the real agent is injured, leaving Mrs. Pollifax to use her considerable wits to help them escape and to save the day. Written by

I had never read the Mrs. Pollifax books so watching the movie was a completely new experience. I really enjoyed it, Angela Lansbury played the part PERFECTLY. I also think the other actors did a very good job. It was of course a made-for-TV movie which always means low-budget and not-the-best screenplay but overall was very good FOR a TV movie. It seemed choppy switching from the first half to the second half, like it didn't flow very well switching to a new plot...which makes sense. Not many movies have two completely different plots. If you ask me it seemed like two 1 hour TV shows that happened to play back-to-back. However I would very much enjoy seeing this made into a TV series!
