Widow Jennifer Nelson works in public relations, conducting tours of a space research facility. She also poses as a mermaid in the waters of Catalina Island for her father's glass bottom tour boat. When an angler hooks her costume tail, she scolds him vigorously, then finds out he's her new employer, Bruce Templeton. Contrite, she consents to write his biography - an assignment he invents just to get to know her better, and playfully code-names "Project Venus."

Bruce lands a lucrative air force contract for "GISMO," a space gravity simulator. The press wants details. So do spies. Classified information leaks from the plant. Jen's tendencies to burn papers (as per restricted area regulations,) talk on a shortwave radio (to her dad,) and phone a mysterious Vladimir (her dog,) make her the prime suspect of security man Homer Cripps, the visiting General Bleecker, and Bruce's partner Zack. She also happens to visit Bruce's home the day he shows Agent Hill of the CIA his voice-activated safe containing a copy of the plans. None of them notice that Julius Pritter, installing a sound system for Bruce's upcoming party, slyly takes photographs of Bruce's "Project Venus" scribbles, thinking them important. He delivers them to men with Russian accents. Bruce is too in love with Jen to suspect her for long. He shows her around his high-tech home, takes her for a wild ride on his speedboat, and meets her dad.
On the night of Bruce's party, Homer disguises himself as a woman. Julius bugs the canapes. A Man from U.N.C.L.E. is amid the guests. Jen overhears Bruce scoffing at Agent Hill for believing she has the brains to be a spy. Hurt, furious, and thinking Bruce does not love her, she retaliates by making prank phonecalls with false intel on his monitored lines. She flirts with both Bleecker and Zack, setting them up for a surprise date with each other. But her vengeful fun ends when the real spy slips top-secret information into her purse, and she finds herself at gunpoint. Can she escape and be vindicated?
