Arms dealers from several companies vie to sell the most expensive and highest tech weapons to a South American dictator. There are complications; understanding the exact nature of how 'gifts' are used to grease the wheels of a sale, a religious conversion from one of the salesman and a romance that begins to grow between two competitors, not to mention the imminient financial collapse of one of the companies if they don't make this sale.Written by

Ray begins studying the specs of the Peacemaker on an inclined table (drafting table) facing a wall. In two consecutive scenes, the camera shots are from the side (since a wall is directly in front of Ray). In several following cuts, Ray is seen sitting at a kitchen table, allowing the camera to shoot Ray from the front. It is possible Ray moved all of the study materials from one table to the other, but it seems clear this was done to facilitate the frontal shot. See more »
For I do not do the good that I want. But the evil I do not want is what I do. Now if I do what I do not want it is no longer I that do it but sin which dwells within me.
That's beautiful, Ray.

Not the greatest comedy of the century, but still good.
The previous very negative commentaries: I wonder what they expected? If they expected a "typical" Chevy Chase movie, where he is the star of the show, and don't you forget it, then ... this is not the movie.
This is more along the lines of "Flying High", when there is no one "star" of the file who hogs the limelight. In this movie, the gags and clever lines are more evenly distributed. In my mind, this makes for a funnier movie.
