108 minutes

A vintage cars restorer traveling back to her sister's wedding in Boston finds herself dragged by a mysterious secret agent into a whirlwind adventure. Lively but uneven screwball comedy in the guise of a tongue-in-cheek throwback to 1960s spy capers; stronger handling would have evened it out, as would a different, more easygoing male lead. Still, a smart time-passer.
