Cedric the Entertainer stars as Jake, a seemingly regular guy who wakes up in a hotel room with a bump on his head next to a dead body and a briefcase containing $250,000 in cash. As if that wasn't enough of a predicament, Jake can't remember how he got there or who he is. The beautiful and mysterious Diane (Nicollette Sheridan) shows up on the scene and claims to be Jake's wife, taking him to a magnificent mansion that she says belongs to Jake. When Jake discovers that Diane is trying to drug him for information, he escaptes and seeks refuge in a local diner, only to run into Gina (Lucy Liu), a waitress who claims to be his girlfriend. She tells him that in reality he's a maintenance worker for a video game manufacturer, but Jake becomes convinced his is really an undercover agent for the CIA - his code name: "The Cleaner" - and sets out to prove it.
