Code Name: The Cleaner is an 2007 action comedy film directed by Les Mayfield and starring Cedric the Entertainer, Lucy Liu, Callum Keith Rennie and Nicollette Sheridan. The film was released by New Line Cinema on January 5, 2007.


A janitor, Jake Rogers (Cedric the Entertainer), wakes up next to a dead body with no memory of who he is and how he got there, but gradually comes to believe he is a secret undercover agent, and after fleeing the hotel and meeting his wife Diane (Nicollette Sheridan) and girlfriend (Lucy Liu) Jake goes on one crazy adventure to find out who he is.



The film received overwhelmingly negative reviews. Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a score of 4% based on 82 reviews (79 negative, 3 positive), with the website concluding "Code Name: The Cleaner is a limp action/comedy flick that alternates between lame, worn-out jokes and cheesy martial arts."

The film managed to gross only $10,337,477 worldwide against a $20,000,000 production budget.[1]

Nicollette Sheridan's performance in the film earned her a Razzie Award nomination for Worst Supporting Actress.[2]
