When Michael Corben, along with the rest of his high-school French class, set out for a trip to France, he runs headlong into international intrigue: Agent Michael Corbin has just been disposed of by the evil forces of Augustus Steranko. When it's learned that Michael Corbin is alive and well, and still on his way to France, he's beseiged by both the good guys and the bad guys. British Intelligence outfits him with a series of James-Bond-like gizmos, and Steranko sends more would-be assassins after him. Can Michael stop the evil Steranko's plans for European domination?Written by

After Michael Corbin is presented with the Lotus Esprit, Vendetta Galante shows him the tuxedo and scuba gear in the trunk while Derek opens the passenger door. Clearly, Michael and Vendetta are standing at the rear of the vehicle. However, Lotus Esprits made in the UK are mid-engine vehicles, thus the trunk is in the front. See more »
Not my French teacher. Listen, that woman's been on my tail ever since she spotted me at the first class counter in Detroit. You know what I think? I think she thinks she thinks she knows me, but I don't think I know her. But I think she knows my name. I think that sounds logical. What do you think? Can you think of somethin' to get rid of her?

Just tell her you can't think right now.

An All Round Entertaining Movie With Comedy, Action and Sarcasm
This movie is for the fans of light hearted adventures mixed through out with comedy (sometimes so stupid it's hilarious!!) When Michael Corbin's lethargy in his high school French class keeps him from graduating; his adventure begins. Even though he (Richard Grieco) is considerably older than the part he is portraying; he does pull it off. I particularly enjoyed the hotel bedroom scene: SEXY and HILARIOUS!! His (Michael Corbin) "goof-off teenager" attitude solidifies the part for Grieco through out the entire movie. All of the supporting actors: the French Teacher, Helen Hunt and his friend on the tour bus that uses his shaving water to rinse his toothbrush (which I was expecting to see him even pick his nose next which thank God he dosen't!!!) keeps the minor scenes in check with the genre of the movie. Keep in mind that this movie is a "comedy"...nothing more, nothing less. It was not made to be picked apart...just watched. I have seen this movie about 6 times and have even added it to my collection. Granted, there are many more movies that are more realistic and have better acting, but what the hell...I still enjoy watching it!!! Only because it dosen't qualify as a "Classic", but because it is a VERY funny and entertaining movie for all ages, it gets an 8 out of 10.
