The CIA is trailing them. The KGB is tracking them. The phone company is tracing them. The police are chasing them. The cowboys are herding them. And the Indians are hunting them. Are they going to fall for all of that?
When Lauren and Sandy are being chased by the CIA while attempting to get on the plane in New York, Sandy throws money "thwarting" the CIA agents. If the CIA agents wanted to actually capture them, they could have easily had the plane held at the gate where they could have boarded the plane and taken them into custody. See more »

He's a wimp! I mean, look at him! He can't make up his mind about anything! All he does is go around saying "What do I do? What do I do? What do I do?" Give me Romeo or Henry the Fifth! Now there's a guy I could boff!

As the credits roll over the freezeframe of the curtain call, Long and Midler can be heard bickering about Long's performance in the play. See more »
Shelley Long and Bette Midler make a wonderful comedy team and the first half of the movie makes the most of this - snappy dialogue and quickfire direction make for a marvellously funny first hour. Unfortunately, the plot then takes over a convoluted spy story - and the thicker the plot, the fewer the laughs. Pity somebody didn't sort it out - this could have been one of the best comedies in donkey's years.
