PLOT


Harry Tasker leads a double life, performing covert missions for the United states government under a counter-terrorism task force called The Omega Sector ("The last line of defense"). Albert "Gib" Gibson and Faisil assist him in these missions.Harry's wife Helen, and his daughter Dana, believe he is a boring computer salesman with Tektel Systems doing a lot of "corporate" travel. Harry is unable to spend quality time with his family due to his secret identity, causing Helen to believe that he does not appreciate her.

Harry's latest mission in Switzerland reveals the existence of an Islamic terrorist organisation group known as "The Crimson Jihad," led by Salim Abu Aziz , AKA "The Sand Spider." Harry suspects that an antiques dealer named Juno Skinner has ties to Aziz, and after visiting her, he's chased by Aziz's men through the Georgetown Park shopping mall and a large hotel, meanwhile missing the birthday party that his wife and daughter have arranged for him.

When Harry goes to Helen's office the next day to surprise her and take her to lunch, he overhears a conversation with her coworker about "Simon", a man she is seeing. This causes Harry to worry about their marriage. Using the Omega Sector's resources (including a GPS Trackerand wireless microphone hidden in her purse), he tracks down Simon, who turns out to be a used car salesman posing as a spy to seduce Helen. Helen is kidnapped by Harry's agency friends from Simon's trailer and left in a bare concrete interrogation room with a one way mirror. Harry questions her using a voice distorter about her relationship with "Simon" and about their marriage. She says that she wanted to have adventure in her life for once, since Harry never gave her that. Harry realizes his cover as a boring salesman was too convincing and he needs to spice up Helen's life to make her happy. He gives Helen a choice, either go on a "mission" or be sent to prison. She chooses the "mission" and is told that she will be contacted using the codename "Doris." Gib, using the voice distorter, calls Helen and tells her to pose as a prostitute named Michelle. She is sent to the Hotel Marquis to meet a suspected arms dealer. While there she's to plant a bug on his phone. Harry plays the arms dealer in a room frequently used by Omega Sector.

Harry uses a tape recorder to get Helen to dance seductively, stripping down to just a bra and thong. When the action moves on to the bed, Helen lashes out at Harry and hits him with the phone from the bedside table. While running back to plant the bug Harry reveals himself but before he can explain Aziz's men burst into the room, taking both of them hostage. They are taken to Juno Skinner's private jet, given a tranquilizer and flown to the terrorist hideout somewhere in the Florida Keys.

Aziz reveals he posseses small nuclear warheads hidden inside antique statues shipped by Juno, and plans to detonate one to demonstrate his[1]power to the United States. Harry, under the effects of a truth serum, reveals his secret double life, much to Helen's shock. Harry then escapes, frees Helen and attacks the camp, trying to stop the planned detonation. While fighting Aziz's troops, Harry appears to die in an explosion. Helen is recaptured and is taken by Aziz, Juno and the terrorists as they escape the island before a nuclear warhead wipes out their camp and any evidence. Gib locates and rescues Harry using the GPS device in Helen's purse. Two Marine AV-8B[2]Harrier jets are brought in to attack Aziz's convoy as they travel the Overseas Highway bridge. Harry, while hanging by his legs from a helicopter, is able to rescue Helen from Juno's limo before it plunges into the ocean through a missing part of the damaged bridge. After landing and meeting up with the other agents, Harry and Helen kiss deeply as the Nuclear explosian lights up the horizon.

Harry soon learns that Aziz was able to kidnap their daughter Dana after finding his home address in Helen's purse. The terrorists take over the top floor of an under-construction office building in downtown Miami. They also have Dana and the remaining warhead. Harry commandeers a Harrier to rescue his daughter and stop the detonation. Faisil is also there as part of the requested news crew, and provides a distraction as Dana steals the arming key. While being chased by Aziz, Dana climbs up onto a crane at the top of the building. Faisil, meanwhile, is able to kill three terrorists with a hidden gun and Harry eliminates a number of others with the Harrier's machine guns. The rest of the terrorists decide to escape by helicopter. Harry sees Dana climbing the rigging and catches her after talking her into jumping onto the Harrier. Unfortunately, Aziz follows Dana and attacks Harry while he tries to pull his daughter to safety. Eventually, Aziz falls off the jet but gets his clothes get caught on a AIM-9[3]Sidewinder missile. Harry declares "You're fired!" and shoots the missile, with Aziz still attached, through the building's framework and into the terrorists' hovering helicopter, destroying them all.

A year later, the Tasker family is seen having dinner together. A phone call reveals that Helen now also works for Omega Sector. On a mission at a dinner party that same evening they encounter Simon working as a waiter and trying to schmooze another woman with his spy persona. After scaring him enough to cry, wet his pants and run away in humiliation, they dance the tango (reprising a scene from the opening of the film) while Gib complains over their earpieces about being stuck in the truck for fifteen years.
