Audience Reviews for Jumpin' Jack Flash


A Hitchcock plot, that is very good. But the screenplay don't help. Too silly to be good.

Whoopi!! Not really that funny. She needs eyebrows.

Lenny Muggsy

Super Reviewer


A fun spy comedy, with a typical 80?s feel to it. Whoopi Goldberg is her usual overtalking fun self and the film makes for easy watching.
