Goofs

When Lance is escaping from his hotel room, he swings out the window holding on to the drapes. When the scene cuts to a close up of him climbing back up the wall to the window he is clearly gripping a black woven rope, not the drapes. When the shot changes again he's beck to holding the drapes. See more »

Double O-no!
28 February 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

The Paul family, responsible for a number of awful films over the years (like "Baby Geniuses"), were responsible for this equally awful spy comedy. To be sure, the Pauls were able to round up a once in a lifetime cast - besides Corey Haim, the movie also boasts Brigitte Nielsen (whose name is misspelled in the closing credits), John Rhys-Davies, Wallace Shawn, Nicole Eggert, Anne Francis, and Karen Black (though some of these actors only make a brief appearance.) However, this cast is the only thing interesting about the movie. It's a pretty cheap affair, looking very tacky and undernourished in every shot. Worse than the production values is the script. The script is extremely padded out, with the hero making a number of stupid and/or illogical decisions in order to stretch things out to ninety-five minutes. This may explain why director Duncan McLachlan seems unable to add spark and action to make the enterprise lively and engaging, especially in the boring climax that just goes on and on long past the breaking point. Even kids will find the movie extremely underwhelming.
