Storyline

Flint is again called out of retirement when his old boss finds that he seems to have missed three minutes while golfing with the president. Flint finds that the president has been replaced by an actor (Flint's line [with a wistful look] is "An Actor as President?") Flint finds that a group of women have banded together to take over the world through subliminal brainwashing in beauty salons they own. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

When Elizabeth (Anna Lee) first meets Flint, around the 76 minute mark, she calls him 'Mr Flynn', then corrects herself. It is unclear whether it was a deliberate in-joke, as the film's title derives from the saying 'In like Flynn' (referring to Errol Flynn), or a Freudian slip, or just a simple mistake. See more »

Quotes

Lisa Norton: You're quite accustomed to being admired by women, aren't you? All those, uh, ridiculous, uh...
Flint: Sighs? Yes, you're quite right. They are ridiculous. I must say it's refreshing to be with a beautiful woman who's above that sort of thing.
Lisa Norton: Why I never said I was above that sort of thing. What I meant was...
Flint: Yes?
Lisa Norton: You really are good at it Mr. Flint.
[Flint laughs]
Lisa Norton: Tell me something. What is it about you that makes you so irresistible to women?
Flint: It's very simple. I don't compete with them.

Flint Gets too Silly
10 December 2006 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Coburn goes way way over the top in ILF. In OMF he plays Flint as someone who is 'sort of real' ... for example, when Cramden asks him, "Is there nothing you don't know?" "A great many things, sir." In the fight sequences, they are also played 'not campy' ... the fight in the bathroom ... it's more fun when it looks somewhat real, and when the toilet paper and grunt of Gruber comes at the scene's end, it's the right touch.

The same with the fight with the two guards outside Cramden's office. Great stuff. I think Coburn's style influenced Bruce Lee ... or other way around? If Coburn did OMF in 1965 or so, and he met Lee a couple of years later (I'm not certain) .... And after the fight, the comedy is just right; a blend of silliness (the light bulb) and straightness, with Flint saving a life.

Notice also when Cramden is darted, and Flint doesn't mug when he does the cut.

But in the sequel, Coburn is all over the place, over-mugging. While most of the credit for the downsizing of Flint goes to the writers, Coburn also has to take some blame. There is hardly an action scene where he plays Flint like a fighting master ... just for laffs. Again, counter this with OMF : when he climbs the ladder with the guitar rift, happily Coburn doesn't wink and mug. With that great music, it would've ruined the scene(s).

However, the scene in the penthouse, with Flint talking about eating grubs is the Flint form the first movie.

The director should have seen this. Or maybe Coburn thought the script was so dumb, he just let loose and had his own jokes. But Flint loses his fun when it became too much Austin Powers.

Btw, the Powers movies would have been much better if they had been played as a homage to Flint/Bond. That's what OMF did so well. Created a great character with the perfect actor to play him.

But even tho ILF is so inferior to the first, it's still a lot of fun. How can I say this? Because he's still Flint!
