Overview

Penny Marshall in her feature film directing debut, four screenwriters, and a ebullient Whoopi Goldberg join forces to make Jumpin' Jack Flash, a modern espionage comedy. Goldberg plays Terry Doolittle, a computer operator in a large New York City bank who picks up a cry of help on her computer. The signal is from a man who signs off as Jumpin' Jack Flash. Based on the Rolling Stones tune of that name, she figures out his secret password and opens up a Pandora's box of international intrigue. It seems Jack Flash is a pseudonym for a British agent who is trapped in Russia and desperate for information from the British Embassy that will help him escape. When Terry agrees to help him, the CIA, the KGB, British intelligence, and sundry other law enforcement organizations are all hot on her tail as she tries to help the beleaguered British agent.

    Hilarious & Finally on DVD!

    If you love Whoopi's anarchic presence on the Oscars, this is for you. Unjustly slagged by reviewers, it's a witty, suspenseful and exciting comic thriller written at what seems the dawn of the new communications age. I've seen it easily a dozen times and it's always fresh and funny, with a great cast and a great feel for New York City in the 1980s. Watching Whoopi go berserk at Elizabeth Arden always cracks me up, and wait till you see her do Diana Ross.

    I love this movie too!

    At last, one of my favorite comedies is coming to DVD. Exciting and laugh-out-loud funny, it loses little with repeat watchings. Vintage Whoopi! Do yourself a favor and try it.
