GOING UNDERCOVER(1988) Directed and Written by James Kenelm Clarke.

Starring Chris Lemmon, Jean Simmons, Viveca Lindfors, Michael Gothard, Adam West and Lea Thompson.

A bumbling Los Angeles Private Investigator is hired to be the bodyguard of the bratty yet attractive daughter of a famous scientist as she takes a cultural tour of Europe. Soon he finds himself entangled in a Soviet plot to control the weather.

A simply hideous "comedy" spy thriller that is wretched on every possible level save one. When 80s films went bad, they went bad in grueling ways and this film is as good...bad example as any. Overlit, cheap looking, badly edited, subliterate script and just boring, the film also poorly acted by a resigned cast incapable of doing anything with the material and a lead whose talent is extremely suspect. It is truly depressing to see Simmons, Gothard and West trapped in this thing. West must have had his name taken off the credits since his appearance was a complete surprise.

The only.........and I do mean ONLY bright spot is Lea Thompson as the bratty scientist's daughter. Though why coming out of RED DAWN and in the middle of the BACK TO THE FUTURE trilogy, she agreed to appear in this horror, I cannot say but whenever she is on the screen, the dreary proceedings perk up considerably. Sexy, radiant and surprisingly well dressed and coifured considering how garage sale the rest of the costumes appear, it is obvious that she is a star and going places. Meanwhile it is equally obvious that Chris Lemmon---Jack's son----is not.


Save for Thompson completists, no recommendation.

Be careful; If you're looking for Yellow Pages (1988) aka "Going Undercover" with Lea Thompson and Chris Lemmon, that movie is NOT available on dvd. The dvd being sold by numerous sellers on Amazon is actually Yellow Pages (1996) starring Sam Taft, Laura Kelly and Sean Murphy. Same title, different movie.

Completed in 1984 but not released until four years after, this English production offers little of value. Apparently designed to be a pastiche of the hard boiled detective category of cinema, the work features Chris Lemmon as Henry Brilliant, ineffective private investigator who finds difficulty in obtaining employment other than locating lost pets. His luck appears to improve when wealthy Maxine de la Hunt (Jean Simmons) allegedly selects him directly from his advertisement in telephone yellow pages and offers Henry $2000 per week plus expenses to serve as bodyguard for her stepdaughter Marigold (Lea Thompson) during a European travel junket for coeds. Marigold takes an immediate dislike to her chaperone while Henry's attempts to gain her approval meet with expected rebuffs. The arrangement becomes increasingly complex as a number of subplots appear, silly for the most part. Opening segments are laden with hopelessly unfunny slapstick following which elements of suspense are awakened from the scenario albeit with scant success. Dangerous adventures lack meaning to a viewer when a production fails to provide a sense of purpose, as in this instance. A motif of scientific espionage involving Marigold's father appears but its connection to the remainder of the storyline is put to bed by heavy cutting. Originally titled YELLOW PAGES, released with that name in the United Kingdom and upon the Continent, this weak effort is known as GOING UNDERCOVER in the United States, where it ostensibly has acquired a minor cult following, although one wonders why, as there is minimal wit or imagination to be found in it. Simmons, billed first, is as polished as ever, but Lemmon and Thompson are given the greatest amount of screen time with Lemmon rather charismatic when he is able to avoid the mugging that tarnished his father Jack's performances. Direction is largely pedestrian with no apparent point of view. The majority of the film's drawbacks follow from the director's own script that bounces about in a generally fatuous manner amid themes of comedy, suspense, satire, et alia. However, contributions that are all one might wish are made by cinematographer John Coquillon and also by Moss Mabry for his tasteful costumes, notably those created for Simmons. Opening action is shot in Burbank, the west San Fernando Valley and Bel Air, all in southern California, with most scenes filmed in Copenhagen with a climax in that city's Tivoli Gardens, a wide transmission of locales for a movie suffering from choppy editing, creating a perception that the director/screenwriter has no firm idea as to what sort of picture he is after making.
