Michael Douglas is a secret agent and Albert Brooks is NOT. Albert Brooks is in typical Albert Brooks mood. He is a master of being paranoid and plays it up as he gets caught up in a bunch of espionage when his daughter is about to marry Michael Douglas's son. This plot puts Albert Brooks in many some great comic situations in this good remake.
I love Albert Brooks and this film is right up his alley allowing him some of his nervous rambling and rants.
Plus throw in a performance by K.C. and the Sunshine band....good stuff.
