We gave it a C

It takes gall to attempt a Thin Man film in this day and age, but Kathleen Turner and Dennis Quaid are up to the challenge. Unfortunately, everything else about Undercover Blues is not. Director Herbert Ross sets his stars, cast as married CIA superspooks, maneuvering blithely through a horde of ”wacky” supporting characters, and the film soon collapses into sloppy, backdated farce.
