One of my favorite childhood movies. Really bad Disney movie about an overly idealistic comic book writer who gets roped into a CIA spy defecting situation. The redeeming qualities are surprisingly kick ass car chases and boat chases with lasers and missiles, Oliver Reed screaming driving a black porsche, a machine gun walking cane, and a really hot Russian chick.

With the combination of really bad dialogue, laser boat fights, and Russian villains called the Proctovitch (sp?), this might be your new favorite movie. Did I mention the spy is defecting from the KGB? Her name is Natalia (She's Russian, of course her name is Natalia).

Just imagine Oliver Reed screaming this with a Russian dialect

Never saw the movie although I wanted to when it came out, but for some reason I had the novelization. Weird.

I watched this movie repeatedly when I was a youngster. I would like to see how it has aged.

I must have seen the trailer a million times before watching any number of movies, it seemed like it was on every VHS that I can remember from that time.

I saw the trailer so many times I can still remember the music as well as specific lines within the trailer like "He's not a member of the CIA, he is a writer of comic books!"

Never saw the movie.

It's just one of those weird things that has stuck with me over the years.
