I slightly remember a scene taken in an office (maybe in USA) in which there are two men: one who enters the office (I suppose a boss) and another one which always camouflages/disguises himself; in particular, I remember him inside an armchair (composed like a dress) and, even if I'm not totally sure, dressed as the wallpaper in another scene.

Can you spot the title? I suppose it's a movie from the mid/late '90s… (I was very young; at least the early 2000s).

Might be Spy Hard (1996).

Secret agent WD-40 Dick Steele (Leslie Nielsen) has his work cut out for him. Along with the mysterious and lovely Veronique Ukrinsky, Agent 3.14, he must rescue the kidnapped Barbara Dahl and stop the evil genius, a General named Rancor (Andy Griffith), from seizing control of the entire world.

Rancor was wounded in an earlier encounter and no longer has arms. However, he can "arm" himself by attaching robotic limbs with various weapons attached. Steele is talked out of retirement by an old friend, agent Steven Bishop (Robert Guillaume), and given his new assignment by The Director (Charles Durning), who also is testing out a variety of elaborate disguises. At headquarters, Steele encounters an old agency nemesis, Norm Coleman (Barry Bostwick), and flirts with the Director's adoring secretary, referred to as Miss Cheevus (Marcia Gay Harden).

On the job, Steele is assisted by an agent named Kabul (John Ales), who gives him rides in a never-ending variety of specially designed cars. They seek help from McLuckey (Mason Gamble), a blond child, home alone, who is very good at fending off intruders. Steele resists the temptations of a dangerous woman (Alexandra Paul) he finds waiting for him in bed. But he does work very closely with Agent 3.14 (Nicollette Sheridan), whose father, Professor Ukrinsky (Elya Baskin), is also being held captive by Rancor.

Everything comes to an explosive conclusion at the General's remote fortress, where Steele rescues both Barbara Dahl (Stephanie Romanov) and Miss Cheevus and launches a literally disarmed Rancor into outer space, saving mankind.

Clip of the chair scene:

From CrankyCritic.com:

In some ways Spy Hard is a twisted inside out and played on its side version of Buck Henry and Mel Brooks' Get Smart television series. This time though, Agents 86 and 99 are nowhere to be seen. Agent 22 is now the Director (played by Charles Durning) and he has moved up in the world, impersonating furniture, rugs, Venetian blinds and other large household items. Borrow the undersexed secretary and secret weapons designer from the James Bond movies, stir it all up and see how many jokes about flatulence you can come up with.

  • Yeah, setting & year of release make more sense than mine. – Walt Feb 9 '15 at 16:37
  • Yes, it was that! Thank you so much! (even if I remember it slightly different, but… I was very, very young) – dezzeus Feb 9 '15 at 16:38
