This fast-paced comedy stars Kathleen Turner and Dennis Quaid as Jeff and Jane Blue, former spies on maternity leave in New Orleans. The quick-thinking espionage professionals are eager to enjoy their vacation and their new daughter, attempting to lead a normal life as a family. When the notorious head of the Czechoslovakian Secret Police, Paulina Novacek (Fiona Shaw), is suspected of being in the New Orleans area, the CIA convinces the suave couple to go undercover on the top-secret hunt. Their investigation turns New Orleans upside down as the Blues are chased by the suspicious local police, a vengeful mugger (Stanley Tucci), and the villainous Novacek's henchmen. The masterful couple prove that they are ruthless spies, as well as doting parents, and are soon up against Novacek herself, who has stolen lethal military explosives. These stroller-toting spies mean business and soon find themselves up against their archrival in a battle of wits that director Herb Ross handles with a fun touch.
