Jumpin' Jack Flash is a 1986 crime caper starring Whoopi Goldberg as an ordinary bank employee caught up in international espionage. Terry Doolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) enjoys a quiet life as computer professional at First National Bank in New York City bank until a perplexing message pops up on her computer. The coded message includes a signature, "Jumping Jack Flash". Although her co-workers, Fred (Phil Hartman) and Doug (Jon Lovitz) jibe her about being a Russian spy, Terry finds herself intrigued by the challenge of solving the mystery. Using her knowledge of the Rolling Stones to decrypt the message, she finds a cry for help from a British spy, Jack (Jonathan Pryce) held in Russia. Terry tries to contact the British Embassy on his behalf, but soon becomes the target of the CIA, KGB and law enforcement and must go on the run. Penny Marshall ("A League of Their Own") directs this fish-out-of-water comedy.
