Elizabeth Hurley was the original choice for Diane.

Goofs:
Errors in geography: When Jake gets his cell phone for the first time and checks his call record, he says "El Pollo Loco." The closest El Pollo Loco to Seattle (where the movie takes place) is in Reno, Nevada; a little too far for a phone call for Mexican food.

Hotel Receptionist: So you're Dutch?
Jake Rodgers: [Jake smiles] Yeah, have you never heard of Dutch Chocolate? Ricola!

User Review

Code Name: The Cleaner

Rating: 7/10

Friday night my wife and I went to see Code Name: The Cleaner, staring Cedric Kyles (AKA Cedric the Entertainer) and Lucy Liu. It's about Jake, a man who wakes up in a hotel room, next to a dead body, with no memory of who he is or how he got there. As events unfold around him, he starts to recollect that he is a secret agent, and puts together that he was working undercover as a janitor on a deadly mission.

This was another fun movie. It had a PG-13 rating but I would say that it was a fairly mild PG-13 (a few shootouts and Nicollette Sheridan in her undies), so I wouldn't worry too much about taking a 13 year old to see it. It's the first movie I've seen with Cedric in the lead role and only the second with him in it at all (Serving Sara was the first). I really liked him. He was absolutely hilarious without going over the top. Of course Lucy Liu is always a sight to behold.

The rating it has received on IMDb was a dismal 3.0 but that was because a significant number (52%) of the votes were a 1. I suspect that the movie or one of it's actors really perturbed some group, so they retaliated with a vote drive. There is no way this movie rated a 1. I personally gave it a 7 and my wife tells me we will own this.

Incidentally, stick around for the first half of the credits. The show some very good outtakes.
