A quick note about this week's Bond movie

So I'm doing Never Say Never Again this week (starting Wednesday, as usual). I probably don't need to explain it, but in case you're wondering why I'm including NSNA and not the 1967 spoof Casino Royale, the reason is that I can actually talk about this one the same way I do about the official movies. NSNA is trying to compete with those films on their own level, so measuring it against them is a direct comparison. That's not the case with the '67 Casino Royale, which would be better discussed in a series on '60s sex comedies. But not by me.

I love how the posters is just Sean Connery flanked by two women in 80s swimsuits. Even the marketing knows that the plot doesn't matter so long as they have the original back in the picture.

Exactly right. I remember when it came out. There was no way Bond fans weren't going to see it.
