Jason Starr is an international spy. While on a mission there was an altercation and Jason disappears. His boss Vaughn then goes to his twin brother Warren Starbinder, a veterinarian, and asks him to pose as Jason so to complete his mission. Warren agrees to do so but the talk will not be easy since he is not a spy. Warren also cannot tell his wife and family what he's doing which makes it hard for him to explain the peculiar ways he is now behaving. He is supposed to deliver a quarter million dollars in exchange for an overlay of a secret document. From being chased by the KGB and an ex-NSB agent who is out for revenge, to spicy car chases and action sequences all the while maintaining his family's trust through deceit, this movie is a comic treat. And the end springs a surprise in the identity of Scorpion, the primary villain.
