Wallace Ritchie, an American vacationer in London, doesn’t know that the bullets are real and the truth serum true. He thinks the intrigue erupting around him is part of an audience-participation theater event. Yet the world’s fate depends on this gullible goofus who can’t even spell CIA.
Bill Murray is Ritchie, the naive spy who comes in very bold in The Man Who Knew Too Little. He can’t believe how believable the make-believe is. But as Ritchie’s funny experiences with a femme fatale (Joanne Whalley), a corpse, highway pursuits (lesson #1: drive on the left), assassins and a bomb prove, variety isn’t just the spice of life. It’s the life of spies.
