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 John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

In the scene set in the veterinary class one of the student extras is wearing a red sweatshirt with the letters "AB" on it in white. This shirt is borrowed from Revenge of the Nerds (1984) starring Anthony Edwards and directed by Jeff Kanew, who directed Edwards in this movie. This shirt was worn by the "Alpha Betas," the enemy fraternity of Edwards's Tri-Lams, in the "Nerds" movies. See more »

Goofs

Registering in the Berlin hotel, Sasha comes first and enters the name Barlickova. The receptionist then asks Jonathan, sneering, "Mr ... Barlickova?" Czech surnames for females always end with 'ova', whereas males don't; if the couple shared a surname, Jonathan would be Mr Barlicek. See more »

80,s cold-war cult
16 September 2001 | by fissiruhlSee all my reviews

This movie is a real 80,s movie but in a positive way. It also brings back those memories of the cold war that used to be. Especially in East-Berlin the movie becomes tense. Besides tense the movie is also quite funny.Anthony Edwards is well-cast as the young man being whirled into the wicked world of espionage behind the Iron Curtain, and I can´t help falling in love with Linda Fiorentino..That woman is so seductive and sexy in a strange mysterious way. She, and the border-tension of East Berlin, is my main reason for really liking this movie...They don´t make´em like this any more....Its Spy Game of the 80,s...
