After the success of Gold, Moore and York team again, smoothiechops as an arms merchant to her independent journalist with principles, a divorce, and a young son. Out to scupper Moore's weapons deal with NATO, while trying not to fall in love with him, York's real nature is revealed through a remark her son and the scriptwriter let slip: 'Mother makes news happen where she wants to be'. The film itself is just as calculating - a romantic comedy bogged down by some desperately protracted humour, tourist Brussels locations, and the manner in which British, American, and Continental sales are all glaringly kept in mind. The result is, as one character says apropos of something else, like getting a troop of horses to piss at the same time.
