watch this movie now :D
2 September 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

From the opening introduction of this spy spoof and Bond wannabe to the end credits will have you laughing at the stupidity and silliness of our inept spies...I must have seen this film at least 100 times in my life so far. So much so that I could recite script and dialogue. It's an outright classic of British comedy. Morecambe and Wise have always been a British comedy favorite so their first movie excels. I love the way Eric lusts after the girls with that cheeky schoolboy attitude. If he ever got one of those girls he proberbly wouldn't know what to do with her right away hehe...but it seems he has fun trying! Ernie, on the otherhand, is the best straightman to Erics genius. A perfect match. And Ern does look cute in that blonde wig ;) Good back up comes from various actors but my favorite is Francis Matthews aka Mr. do-do, just watch the judo sketch and the ying-ta-whhoo! Lots of fun for all ages especially if your age is your shoe-size. It never gets tired or old just funnier. Just keep an eye out for Sid and Dick in the cafe and some very silly singing based on 'that song from swan lake'
