Deal of the Century
The humor in this Chevy Chase comedy lies solely in the eyes of the beholder. The comic plays Eddie Muntz, an arms dealer looking to make a big sale of war planes to a South American dictator. In order to do so, his girlfriend (Sigourney Weaver) has to sleep with the dictator and his friend (Gregory Hines) has to be convinced to do one more killing. Eddie's archenemy is Stryker (Vince Edwards) who wants to make that deal himself and will stop at nothing to obtain his ends. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"...another so-so chapter in the Chevy Chase canon of motion-picture comedies."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"I would have been thrilled to revisit this one and walk away calling it "sadly misunderstood" or "seriously underrated," but the thing's an absolute mess from stem to stern."
