When the overworked and stressed-out White House presidential shrink runs away, the CEA and the FBR scramble to retrieve him before he could be abducted by various competing foreign intelligence services.
At first, Dr. Sidney Schaefer feels honored and thrilled to be offered the job of the President's Analyst. But then the stress of the job and the paranoid spies that come with a sensitive government position get to him, and he runs away. Now spies from all over the world are after him, either to get him for their own side or to kill him and prevent someone else from getting him.Written by

Every line referring to the "FBR" or "CEA" is dubbed, often quite obviously. The actors were actually saying "FBI" and "CIA," but at the behest of the actual agencies the names were changed in post-production. See more »

Did you think Dr. Strangelove was the best satire of the '60s? Then you never saw this movie. WHAT A HOOT!
There's poor James Coburn, on the lam, hiding out with a "typical American family" picked at random. They go to dinner in NYC, and suddenly the spies of many nations leap out from everywhere.
