Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This uneven comedy was made in 1984, but for some odd reason (because it was a clunker, perhaps?) remained unseen for four years. Back to the Future star Lea Thompson is the spoilt brat on a trip to Europe who is kept under surveillance by Chris Lemmon, a private eye so unskilled that she gets kidnapped right under his nose. Incredibly silly stuff, notable only for the supporting performances of Jean Simmons and Viveca Lindfors, who manage to rise above the otherwise dumper-bound material.
