That’s the best you will get from “Code Name: The Cleaner”, but it lasts only a minute (on a 88-minute movie). Leaded by actor/comedian Cedric Kyles, best known as his stage name Cedric the Entertainer, this action-spy comedy is available in France on DVD since July 1st, 2009 by Metropolitan as “Nom de Code: The Clearner”.

Imagine the annoying Bosley from “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” becoming the lead character instead of the kick-ass ladies and you’ll know what to expect from “Code Name: The Cleaner”: Stupid jokes, overacting, a not a lot of action.

The story is about a guy who lost his memory and doesn’t remember if he’s a “cleaner” (hitman) or cleaner. The two women who cross his path during his recovery, are maybe his wife (Nicolette Sheridan – nominated for Worst Supporting Actress at the Razzie Award in 2008) and girlfriend (Lucy Liu – also executive producer of the movie) or maybe not...
