Increasing silly and tiresome comedy vehicle starring Whoopi Goldberg as a kooky office worker who gets entangled in espionage.
The comedy swings into a wacky stand up comedy routine for its star on too many occasions and it's not particularly funny.
Average entertainment, carried only by Whoopi Goldberg's enthusiasm.
5/10
