This is na film that critics didn't rate very highly, but once again they got it wrong! Undercover Blues is the story of a married couple on vacation in New Orleans with their new 8 month old daughter. This may not sound exciting if it weren't for the fact that the couple are super spies Jeff & Jane Blue. They may be on maternity leave, but they manage to find ways to stay in the game.
First off, they run afoul of small time but big egoed mugger Muerte who spends the entire movie trying to exact revenge upon the blues, popping up continually throughout, but being easily foiled each time.
Secondly, they are approached by their boss to take on a case to apprehend a former communist spy turned arms dealer Paulina Novacek. Thrill ensue as the spies battle back & forth throught the film ending in an action packed battle.
As if the Blues don't have enough problems facing them, they are constantly being harassed by overzealous Police Lt. Ted Sawyer & his inept partner Sgt Halsey. Sawyer tries to get a grip on exactly what the Blues are up to in New Orleans adding to the confusion that surrounds them. It all comes together in an action packed entertaining & very amusing romp!
Kathleen Turner & Dennis Quaid star as the Blues. One has to wonder if their cheeks hurt when filming was done as both sport wide grins through the entire movie adding to the slapstick feel of this film. Quaid quips one liners constantly while you get plenty of good looks at Turner's amazing legs! Quaid & Turner are hardly the bulk of the star power of this movie. Stanley Tucci is amazing as the vindictive Muerte. Fiona Shaw plays Novacek who is as seductive as she is deadly. Tom Arnold & Park Overall star as Vern & Bonnie Newman a midwestern couple also on vacation who befriend the Blues while having no clue as to what is really going on? Comedian Larry Miller is the buffoonish Sgt Halsey & look for fellow comedian Dave Chappelle in a small early roll as Muerte's sidekick Ozzie. Film buffs will also spot veteran character actors Marshall Bell & Saul Rubinek.
This film is just about as entertaining as it gets with lots of action, lots of laughs & even a few heartwarming moments. It also does a great job of showing you a generous portion of the sights & sounds that make New Orleans the jewel of the South. The cast is amazing, the story is solid & the backdrop is breathtaking! What more could you want? Oh yes & there is that "Thumbing your nose at the critics" thing!
This movie originally came out in 1993 on vhs tape , it Stars
Kathleen Turner as Jane Blue, & Dennis Quaid as Jeff Blue.
A wise-cracking husband and wife team of ex-Spies, who are hassled by the FBI & the police to do just one more job..

This is a great movie for anyone that likes comedy with a bit of action. Stars are Kathleen Turner, Stanley Tucci and Dennis Quaid. We have watched this many times on VHS and now that we have a DVD, had to get one to continue watching it. It never gets old and always brings a smile. Great family movie too. They left room for a sequel, but unfortunately it never came. What a team!
My wife and I still quote lines from this movie. Set in New Orleans, which is itself a treat. Kathleen Turner and Dennis Quaid play spies on hiatus but dragged back in while on vacation. There are two well-meaning but bungling cops played by little-known actors who do a great job with the small parts they are given. Stanley Tucci is TERRIFIC as Muerte/Morty. He makes the movie. Tom Arnold has a cameo and does well in it. There is a bit of a low-budget feel to it but don't let that stop you since it seems like everyone involved gave it there all. We watch it fairly often and you will too!
