OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 43 moviegoers:
TEENS:The few teen opinions we collected are very high. They certainly enjoyed it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:These few males all rated it just average. The females rated it about the same. Not good.
ADULTS:The male opinions aren't very good. There are very few high opinions and lots of low to very low opinions. The females have more high opinions but also more very low opinions. With such mixed opinions I would strongly recommend a lower priced matinee. I believe your probability of enjoying this movie is somewhat low.
Jake (Cedric the Entertainer), a seemingly regular guy wakes up in a hotel room with a bump on his head next to a dead body and a briefcase containing $250,000 in cash. As if that wasn't enough of a predicament, Jake can't remember how he got there or who he is. The beautiful and mysterious Diane (Nicollette Sheridan) shows up on the scene and claims to be Jake's wife, taking him to a magnificent mansion that she says belongs to Jake. When Jake discovers that Diane is trying to drug him for information, he escapes and seeks refuge in a local diner, only to run in to Gina (Lucy Liu), a waitress who claims to be his girlfriend. She tells him that in reality he's a maintenance worker for a video game manufacturer, but Jake becomes convinced he is really an undercover agent for the CIA - his code name: "The Cleaner" - and sets out to prove it.
Soon Jake and Gina are being followed by FBI agents, as well as Riley (Will Patton), an employee of the video game company who tells Jake that he has hidden away a high-tech device that could incriminate Hauck (Mark Dacascos), the CEO of the company who is the key player in a huge arms deal about to go down. And throughout all of this, Jake is experiencing flashbacks of being in a war zone and assembling a weapon. It's up to Jake to not only figure out who he really is, but also try to uncover the true identities of those surrounding him.
