Ellie DeWitt and Janis Zuckermann are admitted to the very strict FBI Training Academy. They get a hard course in which they learn to deal with guns and recognize crimes. They also get physical training. Ellie is a real fighting machine in contrast with Janis, the great student. They must help each other, because only when they pass all the tests will they be allowed to join the FBI.Written by

An enduring favorite
Hopefully Feds will be brought to DVD!
Feds is a unique "buddy" comedy. Two women are admitted to the FBI academy on the assumption that they will fail. Academically weak and physically strong Ellie pairs up with academically strong and physically weak Janice for mutual aid. Both have plenty of moxie and come up with unique solutions for overcoming roadblocks.
Casting Rebecca DeMornay as Ellie was genius; soft-spoken Mary Gross is exactly right as Janice. It's refreshing to see two women in these kinds of roles. Has one of the best funny bar-seduction scenes ever. Fred Thompson is the perfect FBI director Bilecki, with a hard-guy manner and that warm southern accent.
Family-friendly despite the bar scene.
