The complete innocent, Michael Jordon, is drawn into a web of secrecy and government secrets when a girl carrying a mysterious package gets into a taxi with him. When she is later murdered, Michael is the chief suspect and on the run.

Film H of March Movie Madness
This was planned as a follow up to Stir Crazy, with both Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor again starring, but I think when Richard Pryor took one look at the script he bailed, and Gene Wilder should have done likewise. It's a stinker. Although its famous for him meeting his future wife, Gilda Radner on the set, who is miscast in her role. It's not a funny movie at all, barely containing any laughs at all, it's 30 minutes too long, and it tries at a plot with spies and espionage that other movies have done far far better. Avoid .
Charming performances from Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner as well as wonderful chemistry between the two sorta make up for what would have been an even more mediocre film. Disappointing considering the talent between such terrific comedic actors in their prime.
