Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn star as a pair of reunited sweethearts on the lam from thugs, the police and the FBI in this action-comedy. Gibson, who’s been hiding out under the federal witness protection program for the past 15 years, is pursued by those he testified against.

This frenetic John Badham (“War Games,” “Saturday Night Fever“)-directed film is little more than an overblown, cartoonish two-hour chase.
