Product Description

A computer operator (Goldberg) at a bank is plunged into an exciting world of international intrigue, danger and romance when her terminal gets an S.O.S. from "Jumpin' Jack Flash," a British spy stranded in Eastern Europe. She is soon matching wits with the deadliest members of the CIA to the KGB. Jon Lovitz and Jim Belushi co-star in this suspenseful, fast-paced and murderously funny comedy.

Amazon.com

Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple) gives one of her earliest and finest film performances as Terry Doolittle, a computer programmer who unwittingly becomes embroiled in an international espionage scheme, forced to outmaneuver the CIA and KGB in this riotous 1986 Cold War comedy. Doolittle, the outspoken and irreverent employee of an international bank, is working overtime one evening when her terminal receives an encrypted message pleading for help from Jumpin’ Jack Flash, code name for a British spy (Jonathan Pryce) trapped in Eastern Europe. At first reluctantly and then audaciously, Doolittle becomes privy to his predicament and essential to his escape while delivering a steady stream of ribald one-liners and witty slapstick—whether it’s her Mick Jagger impersonation, police station meltdown, or infamous dress-caught-in-the-paper-shredder escapade at the British Consulate ball. A host of supporting talent includes Annie Potts, Jon Lovitz, Jim Belushi, the late Phil Hartman, and Stephen Collins (who shines as Marty, the mole), yet the film belongs to Whoopi. Though the plot is far-fetched and often flimsy, Penny Marshall (in her directorial debut) gives Goldberg enough latitude to showcase her immense talent in a role she obviously relishes—and audiences will too. Rated R for extreme profanity and mature themes. --Lynn Gibson

I am sooooooooooooooo happy that one of my all time favorite movies has finally come out on DVD. I love this movie so much. It's one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Every time it comes on TV, I watch it like it's new. My favorite scene is when she dresses like one of the supremes and she gets her dress caught in the shredder, I laugh so hard at that point. Please, if you haven't seen this movie, it is a must have, cause it is unbelievably funny.

"Jumpin' Jack Flash" is a GREAT movie filled with hysterical lines and a zany cast. This is almost a cult classic and it is a tragedy that the movie isn't on DVD ! Why, just the fact that Whoopie is in it would make it sell great and there are at least two generations missing out on this film that would go nuts for it... MY poor VHS copy is almost worn out and there are so many delightful quips and lines in this film, almost nothing puts me in a better moood ! ("Get yourself an office - with a desk and a lamp !") PLEASE come to your senses an put this little gem, for its 20th anniversary at least, onto DVD !

Years ago when this was first released it was the first movie I saw Whoopi Goldberg in, and I haven't missed any of her movies since then. Fans of comedies about average people getting into complicated spy situations with comedic results will love it. If you are a fan of movies like "Bird on a Wire", "Outrageous Fortune", and "Undercover Blues" you should enjoy this one.

This was the first time I recall seeing a comedy spy movie other than "Casino Royale" at the time. Goldberg and the rest the cast do a great job. Good music and sets make it stand out among a good number of those produced today. I highly recommend you buy this one since it is definitely one of Whoopi's best.

This movie is a masterpiece Cold War comedy. Whoopi Goldberg is wonderful as the computer programmer, who is unsuspectingly brought into the struggle of a British spy. The plot twists wonderfully, and has real quality. Jonathan Pryce's cameo as Jack Flash is great also, as well as his voice. If you want to see a great, and funny film, as well Penny Marshall's directorial debut watch this wonderful film

"Jumpin' Jack Flash" is my favorite comedy and a cult classic in my family. We quote lines lines to each other to fit family situations and have watched it so often that we have worn it out. I have been looking unsuccessfully for a VHS or DVD replacement for over a year. My son preordered a DVD for me, but after 5 months the order was cancelled... Whoopie has never been better, and deserves a lasting version of this incrediblly funny movie.

Some movies get better the more often you see them, even if they are not a "great film" by normal definitions. They are good for curing a "blue" mood. Jumpin' Jack Flash is one of those. Watch it and laugh with someone you love! You will wear out a VHS tape. This one needs to be on DVD.

Whoopi Goldberg shined in this film. The plot, characters and laughs all worked together to create a truly remarkable and fun movie. Lots of very hilarious scenes and sticky situations. The perfect balance of comedy, action, drama, supsense and romance. Recommended for late nights and rainy afternoons.

I absolutely love this movie and plan to get it on DVD now that it is out. This is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time. I saw this movie when I was fairly young, and watched it again as an adult. As an adult, I still found the movie to be very amusing. I love to watch it during the little down time that I have. It is one of my guilty pleasures on a rainy day. Whoopi Goldberg's character is strong, intelligent, and independent. This movie has a little bit of everything, drama, mystery and suspense, and comedy (definitely!). I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't watched this movie, but I will say that this is one movie that doesn't often get the spotlight, but it is well deserved of one.
