Undercover Blues ★★½ 1993 (PG-13)

Comedythriller starring Turner and Quaid as married spies Jane and Jeff Blue, on parental leave from the espionage biz, who are on vacation with their 11monthold daughter in New Orleans. But the holiday is interrupted when they're recruited by their boss to stop an old adversary from selling stolen weapons. The leads play cute together and the baby is adorable but this is strictly routine escapism. Stick with “The Thin Man” instead. 90m/C VHS, DVD .
