Goofs

In the hotel, Jake says the briefcase contains approx $250,000. There are 10 stacks of bills with two bundles in each stack. A bundle of bills contains 50 bills. So that would be a total of 100 bills/stack or 1000 total. The largest bill in circulation is the $100, thus no more than $100,000 could be in the briefcase (most people don't realize just how difficult it would be for a single person to carry large sums of money like $1,000,000 or $10,000,000 and how many suit/briefcases it would take to have such in "small, unmarked bills" but yet movie characters seem to be able to do so easily in even small bags.)

Code Name: The Cleaner
17 January 2007 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio USA) – See all my reviews

Friday night my wife and I went to see Code Name: The Cleaner, staring Cedric Kyles (AKA Cedric the Entertainer) and Lucy Liu. It's about Jake, a man who wakes up in a hotel room, next to a dead body, with no memory of who he is or how he got there. As events unfold around him, he starts to recollect that he is a secret agent, and puts together that he was working undercover as a janitor on a deadly mission.

This was another fun movie. It had a PG-13 rating but I would say that it was a fairly mild PG-13 (a few shootouts and Nicollette Sheridan in her undies), so I wouldn't worry too much about taking a 13 year old to see it. It's the first movie I've seen with Cedric in the lead role and only the second with him in it at all (Serving Sara was the first). I really liked him. He was absolutely hilarious without going over the top. Of course Lucy Liu is always a sight to behold.

The rating it has received on IMDb was a dismal 3.0 but that was because a significant number (52%) of the votes were a 1. I suspect that the movie or one of it's actors really perturbed some group, so they retaliated with a vote drive. There is no way this movie rated a 1. I personally gave it a 7 and my wife tells me we will own this.

Incidentally, stick around for the first half of the credits. The show some very good outtakes.
