“In my book, Gotcha! is another good movie in Anthony Edwardu0026#39;s catalog of 80s movies. Edwards is Jonathan, a somewhat wimpy looking college student whou0026#39;s afternoon frat boy fun of tagging his rival classmates with a dart gun as he chases them around campus, is about to come a reality in an arena of gritty international espionage. And Jonathan oughta know, these guys donu0026#39;t f**k around. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJonathan and his buddy, Manolo (Jsu Garcia) take a trip to Europe during semester vacation. For Jonathan, heu0026#39;d like to spend times soaking up the local culture with beautiful girls, but heu0026#39;s just too quiet for all of that, unlike Manolo, whou0026#39;s so brazen that his pick up lines are thinly disguised stories about him being a spy and needing an escort to help distract those who are following him. So, of course Manolo gets the girl.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut Jonathan soon getu0026#39;s lucky, too, meeting an elegant, but secretive Russian woman named Sasha (Linda Florentino) who gives him some story about being an exchange student and all of that. He even ditches his friend, Manolo (they were supposed to go to Spain) to go with his girlfriend to Germany, which is not an ideal vacation destination in 1985. But Jonathan, smitten with his new girlfriend, finds out there is more going on, and soon enough, his little games of pretending to be a spy are going to help him get out a real jam, or else heu0026#39;s going to wind up dead. It is actually a really enjoyable movie, seeing this quirky guy stuck in a real life game of cat and mouse.”
