Storyline

The world's weather seems to have changed dramatically with violent storms everywhere and long dormant volcanoes suddenly erupting. No one is sure what is happening or why but when American intelligence chief Cramden loses yet another team of agents, there appears to be only one man who can do the job: Derek Flint, former super spy, incredibly rich and the ultimate ladies man. Despite Cramden's concerns, Flint is on the job and soon discovers that the Earth's weather is under the control of a secret organization known as GALAXY whose scientists are looking to pacify the world and devote humankind to scientific pursuits.

Mr. Whipple as GALAXY bad guy!
21 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Okay, time to get serious: it is not an understatement to declare that Our Man Flint is one of the greatest movies ever made in the entire history of cinema! Haha! It's so much fun!

Heck, how can you not love a movie in which Dick Wilson - the guy who played Mr. Whipple in the Charmin toilet paper commercials for more than 20 years - plays an agent for that evil insidious organization, Galaxy?

The two-film Flint series would never have been the incredibly popular spy spoof that it was - made at the height of the 007/Man From U.N.C.L.E./Wild Wild West/Matt Helm craze - if anyone other than the great James Coburn had been cast. The man was born to play the role.

It all comes together: Jerry Goldsmith's zippy spy music; beautiful babacious Gila Golan and Edward Mulhare as rotten rat Rodney and then of course, its legendary spoofing.

From the LBJ impersonator, to Benson Fong's Dr. Schneider and Peter Brocco's Dr. Wu, to Flints lighter that performs 82 separate functions...83 if you want to light a cigar, Our Man Flint is just the greatest fun!
