Henry Durand (Colin Hanks) refused to follow in the criminal footsteps of his imprisoned father, and opted to become an FBI agent instead. Shortly after becoming an agent for the bureau he left his mother, Marty (Meg Ryan) at home to pursue a three year long investigation. While Henry was away, Marty dropped more than 100 pounds and began to date men half her age. At night she was an uninhibited party animal who drove men of all ages wild.
An Albanian playboy named Tommy Lucero (Antonio Banderas) was one of Marty's many admirers. His attractive looks, smooth demeanor, and sexy foreign accent were undeniable turn ons for Henry's mom. Soon a serious relationship developed and the couple was inseparable.
The FBI knows Tommy's ugly side however, whose true moniker is Tomas Martinez, an international art thief who has just escaped from a French prison. For months the bureau has been trailing Martinez and now, by coincidence, Henry has established a direct and natural relationship with their target. In essence, agent Durand can go undercover without really being undercover.
Since Tommy and Marty are frequently together, the FBI is forced to place both individuals under surveillance. That means Henry must listen to and witness his mother's most intimate and private moments with the thief -- regardless of how uncomfortable it makes him feel. Durand cannot even vent to his wife and fellow agent, Emily (Selma Blair) due to bureau regulations. Worse yet, he cannot warn his mother that she is in love with an internationally known gangster.
Soundtrack features songs by punk rockers The Lemonheads and funk legends The Ohio Players.
