Synopsis by Mark Deming

As the dawn of the year 2000 rolls around, a nervous military leader (Malcolm McDowell) assembles a team to help him deal with an unforeseen problem. In the early 1960s, the CIA hid a stash of nuclear weapons in a secret base in the Colombian jungle, and the aging computer system that governs it will set things off soon if someone doesn't find a way to let it know the proper date. A high-ranking CIA agent (Ed O'Ross), a decorated military veteran who helped design the facility (Louis Gossett Jr.), a beautiful former agent of the KGB (Sarah Chalke), and a computer expert well versed in debugging systems for Y2K (Jaimz Woolvett) are dispatched to deal with the crisis, but it turns out that one of the party isn't so sure about seeing the system made safe. If you're reading this after Jan. 1, 2000, chances are good that everyone got the millennium bug worked out in time.
