Storyline

A honeymooning couple become entangled in a plot to recover plates for counterfeiting U.S. dollars. She thinks she's just retired from a government "dirty jobs" department, but her superiors have other ideas. He thinks she's a retired travel agent. Set in Spain, there's a constant flow of visual jokes, mainly at the expense of a group of incompetent thieves who are in hot pursuit of the plates. Many of the jokes are predictable, but there's enough to keep almost everyone amused. Written by Rob Hartill

Enjoyable Family Film
19 December 2001 | by potsy32See all my reviews

This is an enjoyable family film with the 'retired spy' plot line. Much like true lies in reverse the husband finds out he has married a 'retired' spy. Shockingly, to her and her husband, she is on another case when she intended to be honeymooning. Fun for the whole family, a timeless piece.
