I Spy

Agent Scott (Wilson) uses the entourage of egotistical boxer Kelly Robinson (Murphy) as cover in a mission to snatch back an 'invisible jet' from a Budapest-based arms dealer (McDowell). He's intermittently incompetent, but only when the gags require it. One might have expected better from Thomas whose Brady Bunch Movie was a most canny spoof. Headed off by Austin Powers, however, this film takes generic elements from recent spy thrillers and makes them slightly less thrilling, interrupting familiar action with workaday comic routines.
