Editorial Reviews

Code Name: The Cleaner squeaks by in living up to the reputation of its star, Cedric the Entertainer. The movie does entertain, but just barely and pretty much only because of the skill we've come to expect from Cedric as an entertainer. In another actor's hands, this freewheeling spy spoof could easily have turned into a schizophrenic dud. The movie still has a little split-personality problem between its aspirations to be a tense, Bourne Identity-like thriller or out-and-out comic caper. Fortunately, the entertainer in him gives Cedric the credibility to juggle both genres with only a few dropped balls. When Cedric, as ordinary Joe (maybe) Jake Rodgers, wakes up in a hotel room with amnesia, a dead FBI agent, and a bag stuffed with cash, at least two people show unusual interest in a prized missing microchip, the money, and him -- in that order. Nicollette Sheridan is a bit too desperate in claiming to be his housewife as she whisks him "home" to their huge mansion. Showing the first shades of skepticism (and comic brilliance), the still-amnesiac Jake wonders, "I'm rich, I live in a big house and I'm married to a white woman. Am I Lionel Richie?" He also wonders if the gun-toting, butt-kicking Lucy Liu really is his mistress, as she claims to be. It all seems to good to be true. But the bad guys who just want the microchip don't care, and the genuine thriller mayhem and laugh riot gags that fly by don't give Jake much time to think that maybe he is just an ordinary janitor who has wrong-manned his way into a massive spy vs. spy cliche. There are a couple of fantastically funny supporting roles for additional distraction. DeRay Davis steals the spotlight as Jake's wannabe-rapper janitor pal, and Niecy Nash (of Reno 911! fame) also chomps hard on the scenery as a sex-crazed security guard. Food Network fans will get an unintended chuckle from seeing Mark Dacascos, the suave and sybaritic "Kitchen Stadium Chairman" from Iron Chef America playing head cheese of the bad guy contingent. In all, it's not worth the audience spending too much time thinking all this through either, especially when Cedric's doing his thing (the clog dance and grandma-spanking scenes are highlights). Maybe someday they'll let Cedric off the thinking leash altogether -- perhaps in Code Name: The Entertainer? --Ted Fry

Product Description

The laughs fly like bullets in this action comedy about a man with amnesia who can't remember whether he's a super spy...or a janitor. Jake Rogers (Cedric the Entertainer) just woke up in a hotel room next to a dead CIA agent and a briefcase full of money. Things go from bad to worse when his blonde bombshell wife (Nicollette Sheridan) arrives to inform him that he's a Special Forces Operative entangled in a high-level Government conspiracy. But nothing seems to add up as Jake digs deeper into the case. Teaming up with another beauty from a past he can't remember (Lucy Liu), this custodian of comedy needs to get a clue before the bad guys take him out with the trash!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cedric and Lucy make a great, fun team June 16, 2007
By Kawika
I enjoyed this movie, and I'm surprised this is getting such whack ratings. Cedric is a funny comic, and he pulls this one off very well. While it is somewhat predictable, it really isn't quite as predictable as most movies you see out these days. Who can really turn down a flick with Lucy Liu? It's a fun time, I'm surprised some people find this boring. Then again, I wasn't really anticipating an intellectually stimulating thriller. I was looking forward to a few good laughs, Lucy Liu, Cedric, and Lucy Liu...I wasn't disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a rental May 2, 2007
You have to be a strong fan of comedy to buy it, but it is well worth a rental. Good acting, story, action, and effects. A black man has amnesia and wakes up next to a dead FBI agent and a quarter of a million dollars. He must figure out who he is, how the agent was killed, and what to do with the money. His flashbacks lead him to believe he is some type of special forces agent, but his waitress girlfriend tells him he is a janitor. Good adult entertainment.

3.0 out of 5 stars All the actors have seen better platforms... July 7, 2007
Cedric the Entertainer, Lucy Liu and Nicolette Sheridan have all seen better platforms, whether it's movies or TV shows that play to their strengths. This is a short comedy about a janitor who thinks he's a secret agent. The viewer is always one (if not two or three) steps ahead of Cedric in figuring out who is stacked up against him. It's not a total waste of time or talent, but probably not a movie you'll see twice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cedric- a man of many talents November 17, 2007
Cedric was awesome in this family movie. It's about a man who has memory problems. I don't understand why so many people think the movie was unfunny. Here are some of the highlights:

- Cedric uppercutting a man with a bucket during a fight scene
- Cedric waking up and not sure where he was, or who he was sleeping with. He turned over and it was a dead guy!
- A man sliding into a glass door, and the glass shattering
- Cedric putting skittles in his butlers mouth. The look on the guys face was priceless!
- Also, the butler neatly placing the skittles in a glass jar in an attempt to make them look fancy was a nice bonus touch.
- During a car ride scene, a bad man who was laying on the roof went flying into a bunch of parked cars when the driver suddenly put the brakes on.
- One of Cedric's friends in a bathroom bending over and a janitor coming in and seeing something he shouldn't have seen, lol
- When Cedric was playing golf, and the golf ball bounced back and nearly hit the butler in the mouth. He ducked just in time!
- Cedric escaping from his fake wife and falling out the window of the big home. Ouch!

The movie had plenty of other funny moments as well. Cedric will always be the master of comedy, baby.

1.0 out of 5 stars pretty boring May 26, 2007
i have always dug cedric the Entertainer,but his films are usually pretty run of the mill. Cedric is a Good Comedian,but He gets stuck in 3rd rate type of films that often aside from a few catchy punch lines and phrases or something are almost done as soon as the film starts. this film is another in a line of his films where the story-line wasn't that much to begin with and I lost interest early on. the chicks in this Film were banging,but the film itself I say just skip beyond a couple of parts.

If you love screwball comedies you need this movie in your collection. Lucy Liu shows her comedy chops in this one and Cedric holds his own style.
