Another one-joke film that wastes the antic talents of Murray. After a series of duds, it looks as if he may be well past his prime. Iowan video-store clerk Wallace Ritchie (Murray) travels to London to visit his bigwig bank executive brother, James (Gallagher), only to be sent out for a night of participatory theater so James can entertain important clients. Wallace haplessly stumbles upon a bombing plot that he thinks is all part of the play. But it's the real thing, and Wallace participates in high-stakes car chases, shootouts and a Russian folk dance. Will Gallagher ever stop playing uptight yuppies?
