Plot Summary

CIA agent Miles Kendig decides to get out of 'the game' and to ensure he's left alone he threatens to send his memoirs to the world's intelligence agencies. When the CIA doesn't believe him, he calls their bluff and starts writing and sending out chapters one by one. Realizing that their operations would be compromised, the CIA (led by Myerson and Cutter) set out to put an end to Kendig's plan by whatever means necessary. The heart of the movie follows a game of cat and mouse between a fumbling CIA and an artful Kendig. Written by P. Wong

Trivia Walter Matthau, who lost family and friends in the Holocaust, only agreed to travel to Germany to shoot the opening Oktoberfest scene on condition that his son, David Matthau, was cast as Ross. See more »
Goofs There's a scene at Myerson's house in Savannah where Kendig is getting ready to start typing and sees a photo of Myerson. When the photo is first shown, Myerson is facing to the left of the screen, but when Kendig picks it up Myerson is facing to the right. The photograph changes several times later. In fact, each change is intentional, and is intended to show Myerson getting more frustrated and dour as the plot wears on, culminating in the picture being shot in the forehead (as explained in the introductory video on the DVD).
