International intelligence just got dumber.

Denis Leary, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver uncover the biggest laughs of the season in this sidesplittingly funny comedy about America's most unlikely secret agent. Allen Quimp (Douglas McGrath) is a nerdy, underachieving teacher with one, all-consuming dream: to rid the world of bad grammar. Unfortunately, Allen's dream isn't shared by his snooty wife (Sigourney Weaver) who believes Allen is one of life's losers. All that changes when Allen tells her a little lie - that's he's really a CIA agent, which he demonstrates by unwittingly orchestrating the defection of a Russian ballet star. Impressed by his work, the CIA actually recruits Quimp, dispatching him to 1960's revolution-torn Cuba. Surrounded by a cast of colorful characters including a dandyish ex-dictator (Alan Cumming), a loose-cannon spy (John Turturro) and Fidel Castro (Anthony LaPaglia), Quimp does his comic best to fight for democracy and proper grammar
