Code Name: The Cleaner ★½ 2007 (PG-13)

Lowbrow actioncomedy for Mr. The Entertainer's fans. Jake wakes up in a hotel room with no memory, next to a dead FBI agent and a lot of cash. Vavoomish Diane (Sheridan) picks him up, says they're married, and takes Jake to a grandiose mansion. Jake has flashbacks that convince him he's a secret agent and Diane is after a computer chip. When Jake runs into waitress Gina (Liu), she tells him he's actually a janitor and head trauma is causing his delusions. Ah, but there's more to the story (a lot of it extremely silly). Still, Liu is sexy in leather and the pic is nothing if not goodnatured. 91m/C DVD . US Cedric the Entertainer, Lucy Liu, Nicolette Sheridan, Mark Dacascos, Callum Keith Rennie, Niecy Nash, Will Patton, DeRay David; D: Les Mayfield; W: Robert Adetuyi, George Gallo; C: David Franco; M: George S. Clinton.
