Bullseye! is a 1990 comedy motion picture starring Michael Caine and Roger Moore. It was directed by Michael Winner.

Plot[edit]

Moore and Caine play dual roles—a pair of small time con-men and a pair of inept nuclear physicists who believe they have invented a limitless supply of energy. The con men use their resemblance to the scientists to con their way into the scientists' safe deposit boxes and steal the formula, but in so doing, they become entangled in a shady world of spies and international intrigue. The film includes a number of cameo appearances, including those by Jenny Seagrove (Winner's partner at the time) playing two different roles, John Cleese, Patsy Kensit and Nicholas Courtney. The film also features Roger Moore's daughter, Deborah Moore, in a supporting role.

Reception[edit]

The Radio Times Guide to Films' review of Bullseye! states: "this appallingly unfunny comedy is a career low for all concerned".[2]
