Retired after years of international espionage, Agent 007 is lured back into action to battle the evil spy organization SMERSH in this notoriously incoherent parody of the James Bond films. David Niven portrays the aging Bond, who atypically rejects the advances of a variety of women, and agrees to battle SMERSH's hold on the lavish Casino Royale only after organization head M is murdered. Also mixed up in the affair are several other secret agents, all named James Bond, played by everyone from Peter Sellers and Woody Allen to a chimpanzee. Despite a star-studded cast, a large production budget, and a hit score by Burt Bacharach, the film was universally panned as a muddled, overlong failure, with the occasional amusing sequence lost in the unintelligible surroundings. The participation of several screenwriters and five different directors, including John Huston, only adds to the confusion. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi
This movie is one of my favorites. I love 007 and this movie just makes me laugh. It shows just how crazy the humor was back in the 60's. I really wanted my son to see it and he really had a good laugh. Thanks for having it in stock. The BB store that we use didn't have it so you came through.
What a great spoof of the spy movies from the 60's. Funny and sexy (for the time). Had me laughing through the whole movie. Forget what the critics say, I thought it was nicely done and enjoyable. Worth a watch.
