Go To
ביגון נוריד שאולה, (We shall painfully send to Hell)
כל אויב ומחבל. (Every foe and terrorist,)
כי כולם צריכים לדעת, (Because everyone ought to know:)
לא מת'סקים עם ישראל! (You don't mess with Israel!)
Anthem Of The Mossad, Hamossad Hasagur

אני האדום! (I'm the red pawn!)

The American ambassador is kidnapped by terrorists from Sujirya. Rami Haruvi, an experienced Mossad agent, is sent along with young agent Michal Bodanyuk to get him back. If Rami and Michal will fail in their mission, the Mossad's staff's annual vacation in "Olga Al Ha'Hof"(Olga On The Beach), a resort for the National security organizations , will be cancelled.

The film shows examples of these Tropes:

  • Affectionate Parody: Of the Israeli Mossad. And spy movies in general.
  • America Saves the Day: Parodied, since the American president is a complete idiot.
  • Badass Israeli: Again, Shuki and Rami.
  • Big "NO!": Rami, during the goat incident.
  • Binocular Shot: Parodied, as Rami eventually sees a "No Binoculars" sign, and has to stop using them.
  • Can't You Read the Sign?: Rami and the binoculars, though he does stop using them.

  • Chekhov's Gag: The "Shuki-Wink", which leads to some Fanservice.
  • Chic and Awe: Haim To Rami about Michal just before Rami meets her for the first time.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Rami Says Caroline is "Amazing...", Haim thinks he's talking about the remote and says he also never really understood how it works.
    • Much later, after Rami uses his "Satellite Phone" to cause the USA to get out of Sujirya. Caroline replies with "Amazing", and Rami thinks she's talking about the phone, saying "And it turns back to a paper too!"
    • "אז איפה אתה פורק את המטען?" (So where do you unload?)

  • Distracting Disambiguation:Subverted. Caroline does this with Rami to reveal that she's actually Mujidra, but that gives Rami time to activate Kuchik's trap.
  • Don't Explain the Joke: Next Time..?
  • Fanservice: Near the ending, because of Michal's "Shuki-Wink".
    • When Caroline enters Haim's Room.
  • Flash Back Echo: Type 3 - Parodied near the ending. Rami and Michal are captive, than Rami starts remembering all the things everyone told him in the movie, even though their cloths don't match what they were wearing when they said it, and some of the things they say were never even said.
    • Also Lamp Shaded, when David's flashback says "Flashbacks? Must be the end of the movie!"
  • Funny Background Event: A lot of examples:
    • While Misha is giving Rami and Michal their briefing he enters a room and strips(off camera), a woman is heard screaming and he is heard asking "What's the problem, never seen a dick before?", than gets out and continues the briefing like nothing happened.
    • Again, during Misha's briefing, a photo of Rami is shown on the wall with the title: "Agent Of The Month - 7 Kills"
    • When The main kidnapper is walking through his bunkers, photoes of assumable inspirations of him are shown on the wall: Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussain, National Geographic's Afgan Girl, The Cover of the Book "געגועי לקיסינג'ר" and... ‎Marco?
    • The News channels covering the incident with the embassador are Channel 2; Galey Zahal; CNN; and Hop, an infants' channel.
    • While Rami is trying to hit on Michal again in the ending, a guy is shown showering in the pool's cold bath, the water suddenly starts steaming.
    • When showing the Gym in Olga, an elder woman with worn out cloths is shown walking on a treadmill with a basket tied to a rope.
  • Fun with Foreign Languages: The entire Sujiryan language.
  • Fun with Subtitles: Three examples,
    • When the Sujiryan news anchors are speaking sujiryan, the subtitles are in "sujiryan". you have to guess what they mean when they talk with the few pictures that are present during the news.
    • When Caroline reveals she's Mujidra, she Shouts one word in sujirian. the Hebrew subtitles write "Now I'll kill you you stinking agent! You're mother's a bitch and your sister, wow, the things I've heard about her. Whoever read this far should slap the one to the left of him then go to the bathroom to see if i'm there.
    • Lamp Shaded in the ending, the subtitles are said to be done by Eliezer Ben Yehuda. (He is The Reviver Of The Hebrew Language).
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Both Rami and Michal's parents were. Rami's parents were obsessed with getting bread home and didn't bother bringing anything else. Michal's dad Shuki trained her from early age to be an agent, so he made her dress up as an agent in every Purim(Jewish holiday resembeling Halloween) - Agents looks like everyone else.
  • Improvised Weapon: Why don't you guys ask Achmed Salima Wach Wach Machsur, who spoke some naughty words, and Shuki washed his mouth with bleach.
    • The terrorist's wife, with her rope just thrown at her from off camera. sadly for her, it didn't go too well...
  • Keeping Secrets Sucks: Subverted, on one hand Rami doesn't tell anyone about what he does in the Mossad. On the other hand he writes it down on the beach and lets the sea wash the words away. Too bad satellites are taking pictures.
  • Kick the Dog: The kidnappers to Rami, since they went to an amusement park in "The Rabin Memorial Day".
  • Manchild: Haim, especially when he's explaining his briefing.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: Haim. also The President Of The United States.
  • Rule of Funny: The woman falling from the cliff.
  • Running Gag: "Do you have a sister your age?".
  • She's Got Legs: When Caroline enters Haim's Office.
  • The Big Board: Haim uses this to brief Rami and Michal on the mission, and some after-the-mission related "business".
  • The Exit Is That Way: When Rami tells Michal to go to take care of the career soldiers' children, she follows the direction of his hand only to come back a second later to tell him it's the other way around.
  • The Remnant: Argan Aslam Katzan, though they did try to deal with it in other ways, which implies this is also a Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters.
  • Truth in Television: Olga On The Beach IS a real resort. and there is a "Hozelito" slide there, though it doesn't reallly bray with each kid.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: This is not kidnap, it is JUSTICE! DAVID!
