Jonathan plays a game called Gotcha in which he hunts and is hunted by other students with paint guns. After a big win, he goes off for a vacation in France where he meets the sexy Sasha who says she is only interested in him because he is a virgin. She takes him with her to East Germany where they are separated and he has to escape back to the west on his own, all the while being trailed by East German spies. He arrives home only to find the game is still going on, and a canister of film is in his backpack. Then Sasha re-appears.Written by

When leaving West Berlin with the punks, Jonathan is told that there will be a passport control somewhere on the road to Hamburg. - Actually, there would have been two border controls: first, after crossing the Berlin city borders from West Berlin into DDR, and second, when leaving DDR and entering West German mainland. The second control would have been the more crucial one, as it aimed to prevent illegal emigration of DDR citizens. See more »
I remember seeing this movie when it first came out, it instantly became one of my favorites. IT was fun, had a nice plot, and Linda Fiorentino was a bombshell. If those that have seen it did not notice, but this movie can pretty much be single handedly thanked for PAINTBALL. In fact when the movie came out they even had the Gotcha Guns, which was pitched by quarterback Jim McMahon. The game was played by Anthony edwards(E.R, Top Gun) and his friends around college, they each had a id card and were assigned a person to kill, honestly I thought it to be a great idea that could be a lot of fun.so everyone that is out there playing paintball every weekend which I am sure there are a lot of you, thank this movie. If you are a fan of the 80's this is a definite must see.
