What a fun movie! An all-star cast provides one laugh after another. A perfect example of how much fun 80s comedies could be.

A vaguely remembered movie

"Years ago, when I was on tour with a rock band, I saw this movie in a hotel room. I was suffering from sleep depravation (and loaded to the gils to boot), and don't remember most of it.
However, there is one scene I will never forget. Hanks' character was performing. The femme fatale who was sent to do ill to him by the CIA was in the audience, and Hanks' character was gaga over her. The orchestra began Rimsky-Korsakov's Shaherazade. Those of you familiar with that symphony will know that after a brief intro, a solo violin part comes in. When it came time for Hanks' character to play it, he instead played a piece he composed for the femme fatale! David Ogden Stiers' was playing the conductor. He stopped the orchestra, turned to him and said "Tonight we are playing 'Shaherazade.' Would you care to join us?"
