Cooper, the deputy director of the CIA, wants to be the director. So, he tries to make it appear that the director is corrupt so that he will resign or be removed. The director appears before a committee and asks for some time to prepare his defense. The director goes home and asks his man Brown to join him. He then shows Brown that Cooper is bugging him. That's when he decides to turn the tables on Cooper by feeding him some false information. And that information is that there's a man, who might be able to clear him of the charges against him, will be arriving at the airport, so he tells Brown to meet him.

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 »
This film tries to be quirky and is charming but there is only one laugh in it. That is the hair in the zipper bit. Even the old collapsing chair gag (a trusty stalwart) flops here. But I don't care, because the actress who has her hair caught in the zipper is Loroooriii Sing....no, I can't type it without shaking. Oh God, it's an impossible dream, having Lori SiiiNng..thing caught in your zipper or anywhere NEAR your zipper, for that matter. Even FRANCE would be near enough to get me hot under the collar. She put the 'God' in goddess. It is unbearable watching this film. She has big hair. There's that scene where she runs in slo-mo in the baseball stand in black shorts. So if you hit the slow on your remote, it goes REALLY slow. It's too much. Then there's the scene in the hotel suite. She is in this slinky black number with a plunging (we are talking Niagra Falls here) back. Gibber. And that voice. "Come and sit beside me and get comfortable." "Relax, and let me take control". She runs her hands down...excuse me, I can't go on. Never mind 'Saving Private Ryan', you want to lose Tom Hanks. Nothing serious, just a couple of broken legs. I know this is a terrible thing to be thinking as he is something close to a national treasure in the states, but that is the SssIInnger affect. He should be removed from that expensive looking sofa and replaced by me. Oh, mother. Oh, God. This film is torture. Has Lori been in anything else? Well, there's that tv show and that bit part in 'The Falcon And The Snowman'. So she's a STAR! I feel a bit of stalking coming on. Only she's too old now and there's an ocean in the way. But with film, stars stay young forever and you control the vertical, you control the horizontal. What you can't control is your undying devotion. Okay LUST. I admit it. With video you can get to where you need to go. And with Loor...you've already arrived before you've even started to leave. If you see what I mean.
Dabney Coleman is also in this comedy. He is not pretty normally, but as he is in a film with Lorrr Snngrrr he has sexiness bestowed upon him. He must look great in the shower. The character Tom Hanks plays in this film is diagnosed as being sexually repressed. It's a metaphor for the audience, I think. Not that I know what a metaphor is of course. The only metaphor I'm interested in is one that involves ..you know who. She called me up and I metaphor a drink. You will not laugh at this film, but you will cry. Boy, *sob* will you cry. Oh, God. Lori. I don't have one red shoe but I do have one helluva red CENSORED.
