Ed Okin's life is somewhat out of control. He can't sleep, his wife betrays him, and his job is dull. One night, he starts to drive through Los Angeles, and he finally ends in the parking garage of Los Angeles International Airport. Moments later, a beautiful young lady jumps onto his bonnet and he finds himself being chased by four Iranians. What follows is a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles, and a very funny one too.Written by

During the scene at the airport, the guy with glasses gets shot by security, and falls into a newsstand. Behind him is a November 1984 issue of Playboy with Bo Derek on the cover with a cigar and wearing a hat. It reads: "BO DEREK X-RATED. SHE'S HOTTER THAN EVER". See more »

Nearly everything is credited in this film. Even the Used-Cars-Salesmen shown in commercials (Cal Worthington, Pete Ellis) and the cast of a b/w-movie (Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein) in Hamid's Apartment are credited See more »
Plenty to enjoy here in this escapist movie. Goldblum & Pfeiffer are fun in the main roles. Suspend belief and take the exciting journey that Goldblum has with Pfeiffer. Look out for the running joke with many famous directors in cameo roles. Look out for David Bowie and Carl Perkins in a knife fight (is this a metaphor for traditional rock v glam rock?). Although an escape action drama it has plenty of amusing scenes eg. the hoods eating peanuts and breaking candy with their guns.
And the title track and soundtrack by the worlds best blues guitarist -BB King.
