The characters from the TV series are reversed in this film version. In the original TV series, Kelly Robinson (not Alexander Scott) was the white guy and the athlete, while Alexander Scott was the black guy and the non-athlete. In both cases, however, the Bill Cosby /Eddie Murphy character was a less experienced spy than the Robert Culp /Owen Wilson character.
