Sam Cooper, a low-level State Department dweeb, comes into possession of a small silver sphere. Sam learns that the sphere contains tiny vials of a blue liquid, a serum that, upon drinking it, renders that person temporarily invisible. As a result Sam is hunted by three dumb thugs, a Soviet diplomat, and his best friend who works for Naval Intelligence. All of them want the sphere. Unfortunately, for Sam he can't simply turn over the vials or destroy them. By using the serum his body now carries "residues" that can be used to duplicate the formula. Making him valuable to all parties dead or alive.

For a movie that's supposed to be a comedy, there are very few laughs. Often the film is just outright silly. There is a lot of running around, yelling, and chasing along with a few sex gags and nude scenes. This film might have worked better if they had played it as a straightforward thriller and avoided the gimmicky 3-D photography.
