"She didn't know jack
about being a spy"...There was a time when Whoopi Goldberg
was a big star. In this 1986 movie, called Jumpin'
Jack Flash, Whoopi starred as Teresa "Terry" Doolittle.
Although the movie did turn a profit, it was not a hit
the movie, Terry (Whoopi) works at a bank. She
receives a business call from a man calling himself "Jumpin'
Jack Flash", who turns out to be a British agent being
pursued by the KGB. Jack asks Whoopi to deliver a
coded message to the British Consulate, and then later
to his apartment to retrieve information. The
result of all her activity is that she is now under
suspicion as a spy herself.
As the movie goes on, Terry finds herself
on a while goose chase trying to unravel what is going
on and finding out who Jack really is. Eventually
she meets Jack, and continuing to do things for him,
including trying to hack the British Consulate's
mainframe, she ends up having a number of unpleasant run
ins with the KGB. In the end, she helps save Jack
and save the day.
