Created by James
Private eye HENRY BRILLIANT is anything but. He's hired
by a wealthy woman (Jean Simmons) to protect her spoiled, bratty
daughter (Lea Thompson) during a trip to Eurpope.
But wouldn't you know it? The daughter soon becomes the target
of an international gang of kidnappers, and it's up to fumbling,
bumbling Brilliant (played by Jack Lemmon's son) to save the girl
(and possibly win her heart), in this frothy screwball comedy.
The word cute comes to mind.
The film seems to have a minor cult following, but Leonard
Maltin describes it as an "obnoxious comedy" that was
"made in 1984, and (understandably) shelved (for four years)."
