Near Misses ★½ 1991

Missable farce with Reinhold as a bigamist in the foreign service. To make time for a mistress he swaps identities with a young Marine in Paris, but then the KGB kidnaps the imposter. Doors slam in hallways all over the place as the performers crank up the mixups to maximum frenzy, but with little effect since you really don't care much about these fools. 93m/C VHS . Judge Reinhold, Casey Siemaszko, Kasia (Katarzyna) Figura, Muriel Combeau; D: Baz Taylor; W: Peter Baloff, Dave Wollert.
