The Man Who Knew Too Little (1997)

I was interested in watching various movies which were expiring today (i.e., today is the last day to watch them). Among the various movies, I started with Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs and then decided to choose between this movie and Masterminds. I decided to watch this one. After this movie I was going to watch Taxi Driver but then I decided that I needed to sleep instead.

Wallace Ritchie (Bill Murray)

The jokes and plot of the movie primarily depend on a forced misunderstanding between the characters. The movie skates on thin ice with respect to maintaining the viewer's suspension of disbelief. Actually, perhaps a more accurate assessment is that a typical spy movie might have one or two scenes which stretch the imagination, but this movie heavily relies on a series of crazy coincidences and unbelievable misunderstandings.

Overall, the movie had some good laughs and I didn't mind spending the time to watch it.

Lori (Joanne Whalley)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Instant Comments:
Hahaha. "Is there a problem here?" Yikes.
25 minutes in and this movie is interesting. A bunch of lucky events for the protagonist.
"We got some smutty letters we're gonna blackmail some guy with."

Boris 'The Butcher' Blavasky (Alfred Molina)

Haha. "Oh God, what have I done, from three feet I missed you."
"We're both acting. In the Theater of Life after all."
American Superman.
"Are you an actor or a person?" "Neither I'm a policeman."
Where's the real person who he substituted for?

"Another one of these Old Spice guys."
Hahaha. 5 hits a week.
