Synopsis: Cal Meecham is invited to join an elite think-tank by a mysterious figure.

Reaction: There is a number of great segments in this movie and many of the jibes from our quick-witted heroes are truly priceless.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • According to Faith Domergue, the pants of her costume were so skintight that she could not wear underwear. A female assistant had to help her put them on and take them off.
  • The TV show's usual density of gags was reduced for theatrical audiences, so that a larger number of people laughing wouldn't cause too much dialogue to be missed.
