Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this entertaining thriller combines an action blockbuster (that means lots of big explosions) and a screwball comedy about a married couple who are both hiding big secrets. The wife is contemplating an affair and ends up being pressured to pretend she's a secret agent, while the husband is the real deal, a suave superspy who has convinced his family that he's actually a boring computer salesman. Not only does it deliver plenty of excitement, it also has some astute things to say about honesty and ennui in marriage. The wife performs a risqué striptease in her underwear, and there's a good deal of swearing. Also expect plenty of violence, including gunfights, car chases, some graphic hand-to-hand combat, and even a nuclear explosion.

Sexual Content

A bored housewife, pretending to be a secret agent who is pretending to be a hooker, performs a sexy striptease in her underwear. Some characters discuss gender relations in highly sexist terms.


Lots of action, including explosions, car chases, shootouts, fistfights and even a nuclear explosion. Though there's little blood or gore, the hand-to-hand sequences can be intense -- the muscular hero dispatches several villains by snapping their necks.


Lots of swearing. Everything from "f--k," "s--t" and "a--hole" to "d--k," "bitch" and "p---y."

Social Behavior

Honesty is the best policy in this film about a married couple that is hiding big secrets from each other. Their relationship is much improved once they both end their charades and tell each other the truth.


A few references to well-known musicians. Car logos are often visible, including a classic Corvette that plays an important role in the plot.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking and smoking. A pack of cigarettes plays a key role in the story. One character is captured by terrorists and given a truth serum.
