Storyline

When the Switchblade, the most sophisticated prototype stealth fighter created yet, is stolen from the U.S. government, one of the United States' top spies, Alex Scott, is called to action. What he doesn't expect is to get teamed up with a cocky civilian, World Class Boxing Champion Kelly Robinson, on a dangerous top secret espionage mission. Their assignment: using equal parts skill and humor, catch Arnold Gundars, one of the world's most successful illegal arms dealers, and foil his treacherous plans for the plane. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When making a reservation at the Hotel Gellert, Alex Scott supposedly speaks in Hungarian; however, his pronunciation is so poor that few if any Hungarians would understand what he is saying. See more »

Goofs

When Kelly and Alex are sitting in the BMW Convertible on the car-transporter they are driving to the north on the quay of the Pest side of the river, but when they drive off the car-transporter they are heading to the south at the Buda side. Note the "Freedom statue" on the right at the top of the hill (Gellérthegy) and the bridge (Erzsébet-híd) in front of him. See more »

Better than I'd heard--- Wilson, Murphy, and Jannsen get to shine and dazzle us in the movie's second half
16 November 2002 | by (Was UK Now US) – See all my reviews

A lot better than I expected! I'd read dreadful reviews, and while I clearly see the bases of the critics' points (I try to only read good critics, critics with useful insights), I must confess I wound up liking the movie.

The first 45 minutes or so was pretty lame--- slow, awkward, annoying. But the it picked up steam, and allowed Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson (my two favorite actors, for real) to be their charming and weird selves. And that Famke Jannsen--- Wow! Those Dutch folks grow some hot babes! At least, I think she was Dutch, once??? Whatever--- she's VERY sexy, charming, intelligent, and graceful. All 3 of these folks were largely very watchable.
