How did Mata Bond, Detainer, and Moneypenny die so they wound up in heaven at the end of the movie? When last seen all three had left the Casino long before Jimmy blows it up? See more »

Oh, by the way, Moneypenny, since I've come in here, have you heard me stammer?
Splendid. Let me know if I do; I haven't got time for that sort of thing now.

The opening credit animation by Richard Williams parodies illuminated manuscripts with cartoon-style calligraphy. It sets the tone for the film as a psychedelic "knight's tale" of Sir James Bond. See more »
I remember watching this as a kid and it was funny, but I can't for the life of me remember why now.
I have seen some stinkers, Plan 9 from Outer Space, Loose Shoes, Bloodsucking Redneck Vampires...and this one is every bit as good.
Yes, it is dated, but the problem is deeper. It really looks like they just chopped up a bunch of scraps of skits and random junk from the bottom of the inspiration pile and called it a movie. And it succeeded mostly by false pretenses. It had enough big marquee names to make people go to the theater thinking they were actually going to see them acting in a movie. Wonder how many of these folks were embarrassed to see their name hooked to this film.
It fails on so many levels, BUT it did take enough people in to pay out well.
