The video version in 1986 was cut by 5 seconds in order to receive a "PG" rating from the BBFC with edits made to shots of workmen sniffing white powder from a cocaine-covered car during the opening sequence. In 2004 all cuts were reinstated and the video was re-rated "15". See more »
Some very funny lines and situations permeate this movie. Tom Hanks does a great job of being a very likable "every guy" in the film, but some of the funniest lines belong to Jim Belushi as his best friend. Dabney Coleman and Charles Durning do well with their parts as competitive agents of the CIA and FBI. If you like spy movies with a twist, check out this under-rated comedy.
