- Synopsis / Plot
- Terry Dolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) is a brilliant but underappreciated data entry clerk who works for Manhattan's First National Bank under the watchful eye of her dictatorial boss Mr. Page (Peter Goetz). Terry often chats with clients via her terminal, which occasionally picks up Russian television. The tides of Terry's life turn when one day she picks up a transmission from a British spy trapped in Eastern Europe, who has the code name of Jumpin' Jack Flash; he enlists Terry's help in securing an exit contract, sending her on quirky excursions to help him escape and avoid foul play. Thus ensues a convoluted mission where Terry is on the run from the KGB, kidnapped while in a phone booth (phone booth and all), injected with a truth serum, and attempts to get a crucial message to Jack before the Russians have their way with him. She also manages to find love, get back at her boss, and do a great Mick Jagger impression to the fantastic soundtrack of music from the 60s. This is Whoopi in top form!
