Reviews
Mine: A really bad movie saved to a large extent by Whoopie. One memorable scene where she tries to decipher the lyrics to 'Jumpin' Jack Flash".
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Computer programmer is pulled into international intrigue when spy who wants in from the cold contacts her on her terminal. Lively but stupid star vehicle for Goldberg, who's infinitely better than the script. Feature directing debut for Marshall, who cast her producer-director brother Garry as a police detective, and former TV costar Michael McKean in an unbilled cameo as a British party guest.
