From his wife Helen's point of view, Harry Tasker is a boring computer salesman in the middle of suburbia; she might be having an affair with a used car salesman she believes to be a spy. After terrorists steal a nuclear bomb from the US Government, Helen learns more about her husband. Over-the-top action; never takes itself seriously. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Visual Effects. Based on an earlier screenplay, The Jackpot (1991).
