A CIA agent goes on the run after a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy.
Standard action and spionage thriller which unsuccessfully tries to outwit the audience with numerous plot twists.
Maltin **1/2: "Jolie's sincerity and physicality make her a perfect fit for this part, and the film moves like a bullet - which is good, because if you think about it too much, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Great stunt work and action scenes make this mindless fun."
When acerbic critic Sheridan Whiteside slips on the front steps of a provincial Ohio businessman's home and breaks his hip, he and his entourage take over the house indefinitely.
Fast-paced, lively and witty variation on the oddball comedy full of absurd ideas and situations.
Halliwell ***: "Delightfully malicious caricature of Alexander Woollcott which, though virtually confined to one set, moves so fast that one barely notices the lack of cinematic variety, and certainly provides more than a laugh a minute, especially for those old enough to understand all the references."
Maltin ***1/2: "Delightful adaptation of George S. Kaufman-Moss Hart play, inspired by the celebrated critic and columnist Alexander Wollcott."
