Publicist Stuart Shepard finds himself trapped in a phone booth, pinned down by an extortionist's sniper rifle. Unable to leave or receive outside help, Stuart's negotiation with the caller leads to a jaw-dropping climax.
When a C.I.A. Agent is killed during a nuclear arms purchase, his partner Oakes (Sir Anthony Hopkins), recruits his twin brother, Jake Hayes (Chris Rock). Jake had no idea he had a twin brother, let alone that he worked for the C.I.A. Jake, a.k.a. Michael Turner, has nine days to fill his brother's place. However, the enemy terrorists learn of his secret identity and kidnap his girlfriend/fiancée. He has to rescue her and save New York City from an imminent nuclear terrorist act.Written by

When hanging in the laundry chute, Jake lifts his right hand and moves it while talking on the cell phone which he holds in his left hand. His feet are dangling down the chute - how is he supported while he moves his right hand? See more »
Chris Rock is hilarious in this film. Anthony Hopkins is good too.
It includes many funny scenes and the action is also good. But the plot it's nothing special at all and the film is not very bad but not very good either. If Chris Rock were not in it, it would be bad. I would rate it a 6/10
