The classic Bill Cosby-Robert Culp secret-agent show undergoes updating for Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson, though the sport is no longer tennis.
CIA agent Alexander Scott (Owen Wilson) recruits professional boxer Kelly Robinson (Eddie Murphy) to help him recover a missing jet worth $250 million.
The reason for the jet's value? It's invisible to radar and to the naked eye. The jet is believed to be in the hands of Eastern European arms dealer Arnold Gundars (Malcolm McDowell), who is also a major fan of boxing.
Robinson's invitation to a match turns out to be the perfect opportunity for the U.S. government to get a mole inside Gundars' operation and to find out where the jet is and how to get it back.
Betty Thomas ("Dr. Doolittle") directs a cast that also includes Famke Janssen and Malcolm McDowell. Not yet rated.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
