Cedric the Entertainer plays Jake, a seemingly regular guy who has no idea who he is after being hit over the head by mysterious assailants; when he finds himself entangled in a government conspiracy, Jake and his pursuers become convinced that he is an undercover agent. Written by
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.)

I have no idea why I rented this film. It must have been the name Lucy Liu. This type of comedy is not something I like, though it probably will appeal to some.
The Cleaner from 2007 stars Cedric Kyles, Lucy Liu, and Nicolette Sheridan. Jake (Kyles) wakes up in a hotel with a dead body next to him. He has no memory of who he is or what he's doing in the hotel. Then he meets a beautiful blond, Diane (Sheridan) who claims to be his wife. When he goes to a restaurant, the waitress (Liu) pours a pitcher of cold water on him -- he doesn't remember having any relationship with her, but she's plenty angry.
Slowly he starts to realize that he was a secret agent undercover as a janitor, and that his enemies want something he has.
To be honest, the outtakes shown at the end were funnier.
Cedric the Entertainer, as he is called, is funny with a nice presence, but this movie was just a lot of slapstick and shootouts. Lucy Liu was sexy and tough in her role -- it turns out she's an agent. There just wasn't much to it as far as humor. Mark Dacascos is so handsome, it was almost worth watching it for him.
I don't have too much to say -- if it weren't for the fact that Nicolette Sheridan prances around in her skimpy underwear, a five year old might enjoy this movie.
